I was just wondering how many times a week everyone was bathing their little ones? I usually bathe Natalie once or twice a week. I think I would bathe her only once a week all the time if her hair didn't get so oily. She has a lot of brown hair and when it's hasn't been washed in a while it gets so oily it looks wet!

I said 3x/wk b/c I'm taking nightly hot baths to help stitches heal, and my dh will bring him in to nurse if he wakes up, and when he's done I generally put him in the water with me.

About twice a week except the times when there's a total "poop explosion" and so we need an emergency bath!

We bathe lo about every three days, so twice a week or as mentioned by ELKMama unless there's a major poop explosion!

Leah has had 3 baths in 6 weeks...I voted other.

We have a history of skin problems...DS gets a bath when I get tired of trying to wipe the dirt off him
