i usually give ds a bath first thing in the morning but then he gets messy in the day. if i gave him one at night he would need one in the morning cos he is a sicky baby and is sick in the night. its too much hastle for twice a day so what is the best time?
We've always done bath time at night. Thought it would set up a nice bed time routine, bath, bottle and then bed. Thought that as DD got older would give her chance to unwind and she would know bed time was coming up. Has worked so far goes to bed no with no fuss. Also lets us have one on one time before bed with no distractions so she has all my attention.
I've always given dd her baths in the morning as it suits our routine better. I seem to have more time in the mornings and it's real good quality time for us. She's never had a problem going to sleep without one at night, and I give her a wash in the evening when I put her PJs on.
I suppose i could just give him a wash in the morning. But he gets up quite early and so we have loads of spare time. and although it may sound horrible, i don;t think i could be bothered to do a bath in the evenings. the evening is my bath time! i think i have just answered my own question.
