Mine have about 3 baths a week, sometimes only 2 if i am very stressed.

Titania Sun 02-Jan-05 21:43:57

mine are done about twice a week unless they get particularly grubby one day for any reason......we got the puppy to bath now as well......

KateandtheElves Sun 02-Jan-05 21:44:12

I usually do mine every other day, sometimes they'll go 3 days. I think the longest I've ever left them was 4 days.

IMO 2 days is perfectly adequate.

mine get a bath a couple of times a week. Def on a Sunday because of school. The DTs get a bath nightly, but only to persuade them that bedtime is coming. The older 3 can pretty much sort themselves out. DS1 needs lots of persuading, even when he's covered in mud lol

NEVER !!!!

Well ok "I" never bath them DH does it usually every 2 or 3 days. Youngest is 13 months, oldest is 4yrs and they both get 'dunked' together

DS is done every night because he loves baths and DH does it when he comes home from work

warmmum Sun 02-Jan-05 21:45:37

Everyday,but I have to admit that if I had 4 and no help, it would not be every day.

Same as Nutty. Usually 3 times a week but only 2 if I've been having a particularly hard time of it.

Blossomhill Sun 02-Jan-05 21:46:39

Mostly everynight but seeing as my hot water is playing up every other night!

i either bath or shower ds everyday...mainly as he loves playing in bath and if he gets in shower its usually with me....easier way to watch him while i

Usually every night as part of bedtime routine but occasionally skip a night for some reason eg NYE when we took the kids out for a meal and was late home and couldn't be bothered.

DS 3.10.
DD 0.7

Hulababy Sun 02-Jan-05 21:58:47

Now DD is a bit older (she's 2y 8m) I tend to bath her (and do her hair) every other night.

ladymuck Sun 02-Jan-05 22:02:04

DS2 (20m) daily - part of wind-down routine. DS1 (3.9) every other day (or not if he's been swimming for example), but sometimes he wants to jump in with DS2 anyway...

Carla Sun 02-Jan-05 22:03:06

Saw this, then saw on your own, then saw 4 children .... as often as you like, really!

I have 6yo DS twins, and they used to be bathed every night, but it's got to the stage where they have to be forced to bath or wash, or go near any water at all, I think it's the testosterone !!!!
They used to love a bath and play for ages, now I have to brib them. To hear the complaining and crying, you'd sware I was killing them.

Bozza Sun 02-Jan-05 22:16:53

LOL jac34 - DS is like this about hair wash which is why it is only done twice a week although he has a bath every day near enough.

joash Sun 02-Jan-05 22:21:35

2-3 times a week in winter. Everyday in summer simply because they seem to get grubbier.

PuffTheMagicDragon Sun 02-Jan-05 22:26:34

3 times a week, sometimes 2. In between - rub down with a couple of babywipes .
