After I posted I had a look on NHS choices website and it seems that I'm doing fine smile, she finds baths too exciting to be a part of bedtime! Twice a day?! Does their skin not dry out? I'm delaying using lotions and potions for as long as possible.

A baby does not need 2 baths a day IMHO shock

You seriously bath your children twice a day? Is it an OCD thing?

Every day at least once! First thing in morning when I am doing the three year old and again before bed.

When mine were babies that got bathed every day because of bedtime routine. I wouldn't say she's dirty with the few times a week though.

I do the same as you to my 6mo.

I do my DD every evening but its more as part of her bedtime routine then actually needing it.

Sounds fine to me too.

I tend to bath DD (same age) most days but that's just because I stick her in when I bath DS because she loves a splash.

sounds fine

Just wondering how many times I should be bathing DD! I do twice a week, then she has swimming and is showered after that. I don't use anything other than olive oil, is this right?! If she's very messy then she'll get an extra wash. I wash under her neck, nappy area every day.
