    It really depends on what were have been doing. In the summer we swim and are outside so much, it is usually every day or every other day. If we have been indoors and it has been a pretty clean day maybe every 2 days or so.

    My son’s skin would never survive being bathed everyday. He dries out. We bath him every other day and sometimes every two days. Its totally depends on the situation and what activities we are doing.

    As a child I bathed every other day.

    My 8 month old gets bathed every 2-3 days at this point (unless we have a diaper blowout or she feels like wearing her supper). Over bathing really bothers her skin.

    Every couple days. I wipe him down everyday, or more often if it’s summer and he’s extra sweaty/dirty.

    My 4 year old has had a bath every night before bed (minus the occasional night away from home) since she was a baby. It relaxes her, she LOVES the water and just really enjoys her bath time. If it was a struggle getting her to take a bath it would probably be less frequent. I’m not a crazy clean freak!

    Now that it’s really hot out she’ll even have a cool afternoon bath after a trip to the playground minus the soap, she just sits in the water. We have a zillion toys and washable crayons too, it’s like a spa haha

    @KatyElle:  I wish there were washable crayons at adult spas.

    Every day.    But I don’t make my daughter wash her hair every day- it does better if it is every other day.

    My kids (2 years and 3.5 months) take baths every night, but they only get soaped up twice a week.  They love playing in the water, and they get a good rinsing, but they usually don’t need to be scrubbed very often.
