How often do you bathe your LO(s)? When do you bathe them?
DS showers with me just once a week. Sometimes twice if he's made a huge mess of himself or if I have to get myself ready earlier in the day (and he's already up). He used to shower with me almost everyday but got really dry when we were in Vegas last month. Bathing him 1-2 times a week helped his skin get back to normal. He almost always gets bathed in the mornings since that's when I prefer to shower.
Both boys on a Sunday night. It used to be bath night when I was little so it's just stuck. Obviously they have a wash every day
Teagan loves shower time and showers with one of us nearly every day. If she's asleep when I shower then she gets one if DH showers later that day. I give her a quick soaping every few days or if she's gotten into something messy.
he gets one every other night, but sometimes skips a night if he is extra cranky, or we are out/ have someone over etc. he gets it before bedtime
He used to get them daily because he spit up so much and his neck would just get extra stinky. Now it's once or twice a week, usually at night but sometimes during the day. He obviously gets "cleaned up" daily and bathed sooner if need be.
Ronin comes in the shower with me pretty much everyday, although because it has started getting cooler if I haven't had him showered by 6pm he doesn't get one and just gets a wipe down because it's a bit cool. Now he is sitting showering with him is sooooo much easier and we can both get clean properly.
Every other night....unless I just can't get to it and miss a night.

Totally! I just plop T down in the shower and she plays with her duckies while I shower up.
Every other night... most nights at the same time as DD1; tho lately I've been trying to do it after she goes to bed; so it's a more relaxing experience for Sophie...
Now that its getting hotter it will most likely be every night or every other night, but right now its probably like every 2-3 days..
About once every 4 or 5 days. It is probably going to be more often soon though since he is crawling and getting more solid food. Plus it is about to get really hot. Once I trust my DD enough to bathe them together, he will get one every other night w/ her. But for now, I don't trust her not to (accidentally!) drown him if they are in the tub together, and I'm usually way too tired after doing her to do him afterwards!
Once a week(ish). Her skin looks terrible if I do it more often, but that's not really the reason I don't, mostly because I'm lazy and it's a whole production to bathe her. DS only gets bathed once a week(ish) too, but now that it has gotten warmer out and he's playing outside, it's every other night. DH does bath time.
Odin gets a nightly soak to relax before bed as part of our routine. I only use soap for for a good scrub once a week and just use plan water otherwise.
Every other night at least, sometimes more, depending on the daily activities. If she's had orange slices in her mesh feeder or a mum-mum then it's bath night. Some days she spits up more and it's bath night then. She sleeps better on nights she has a bath.
Also! Those of you who shower with your babies. What the heck kinda babies do you have?! It is all I can do to keep my kid inside the blow-up duck for her bath. She is constantly lunging and throwing herself at different things. When I hold her she is twisting around and reaching and squirming and lunging at things. We did a shower once when she was around 3 months and it's all I could do to hang on to her in the shower! There is no possible way that any wet, naked human could hold onto my wet and naked child in the shower!
I agree with Anna about the shower thing. There is no way I could shower with Simon! He's so squirmy!
