I bath my three years old son almost everyday since he was born. Most of the time, I just let him play with water in the tub. I only use soap when it's needed, because his skin dry up so fast. He loves it too and also it's his quiet down time before his bedtime, especially he's being in preschool all day.

I do a bath every night after dinner b/c my little ones are messy! Depending on the activities of the day, though, I'll scrub harder some days than others. Also, I have a shampoo/conditioner that I only use once/week. The other days, I just rinse their hair w/the soapy water they're in. Hope this helps!

My kids are under 2 (15 months) but I bathe them nightly. Not always because they are "dirty" but more because its part of our evening routine. If we are out or we have a babysitter for the evening I don't worry at all if they miss a night here or there. Like I said, I mostly do it because its part of their routine. I think, typically, children (toddlers) need to be bathed 3 or 4 times a week.

every night! Kids get dirty even if they are home all day. My 2 year old son just finds things to get dirty in. He's such a boy!

Wow. A lot of people do every other day. We do every day. Our daughter is 21 months old. She loves baths and it is part of her routine. When she is two I think we will stick with this especially since she will start preschool and probably get dirty. She gets pretty dirty playing around at my sisters everyday now! Like others said, I don't really WASH her every day. I let her play in the water and scrub her face/rinse her body. Every other day I do her hair. Good luck. :-)

Every night. Not really with soap and scrubbing, mostly to calm down and have some fun time with Daddy. I scrub him (Daddy is not so good at getting crevices on a wiggly boy) about twice each week.

Wow, I feel a lot better reading these responses. I try to bathe my daughter every night but, some evenings it's just not possible and I would feel guilty. Like it wasn't good hygiene. Now I feel if I happen to miss a bath, it's okay. Thanks all you moms for taking the pressure off. Especially, right now that it's cold out she doesn't do much to get dirty, she is mainly indoors, and she is not a messy eater. =)

From about 1 week old on, every night. I just wanted to have a routine down. You don't have to wash hair every night if it doesn't need it. The only time we don't do bath time is if we go out to eat & it's late getting home. Then it gets skipped.
