Curious what the norm is.
Ds1 is allergic to dust mites, so I have changed his weekly since finding out. It's a lot of work (and water!) to change all the sheets for every bed every week, but I also don't want to go too long between changing, yk?

Usually every week. Depending on who has been sleeping where or if there was an accident I might just change pillowcases and bottom sheets to lessen the laundry.

We typically do every 2 weeks, and up it to every week in the summer because we get sweaty even while sleeping. This is only for the flat and fitted sheet + pillowcases - the duvet cover/blanket on top gets washed less often, say once a month maybe? since we're not touching it directly because the flat sheet is in between. I would change them Sunday night to start the week with fresh sheets and because doing it on a set day helped me to remember.
Now that is our "normal" routine, but since DD has arrived 3 months ago things have been a bit hectic so it is much less often - whenever we remember and have the energy, lol.
Every three to four weeks, usually.

I know - that's the way it is here too.
Every 7-10 days. Pillow cases every 3-4 days.
