    How Often Do You Bath Your Baby?

    I Find That Lovella Wont Take a Bottle Properly After a Bath Because She Gets Too Relaxed & Deep Sleeps Lol

    At Lovella's age we used to bath Brody about 3 times a week but now we try to limit it to twice a week (which is hard as he gets so messy now!) as he gets eczema and bathing makes his skin dry out!

    when hannah was new born probably about 2 times a week. Now, about the same really. Babies dont get 'that' dirty so dont need to be bathed everyday.

    I bathe imogen every 3 days and clean her bits in the morning, she loves having a bath though and is lovely and relaxed when she has a bottle and I find she sleeps well.

    If shes asleep Carly just put her to bed hun and feed her when she wakes up :D you may get an early night if your lucky!

    At Lovella's age, we bathed Jude about 2 or 3 times per week. Our HV recommended this. We still bath him about twice a week now as he has eczma on his upper body and too many baths aggravate it. x

    I give Adam a bath at the same time every night with just water and I wash his hair once or twice a week.

    He loves his bath and I found he takes a bottle after his bath then sleeps for 3 hours. It's great to help with a routine and also freshens him up each night as I use olive oil on his dry skin. xxx

    We used to bath Olivia every other day now she has one every night!

    I used to feed Olivia after her bath.

    My HV told me to leave it an hour before bathing after a feed.

    DS is bathed every night, with DD, It's part of their nighttime routine. Though I don't use any products apart from shampoo every 3 nights as DD suffers from excema and it's cleared right up since we stopped using any products. Occasionally she has a squirt of Magic Fairy Bedtime Bubbles as a treat but normally we just wash them both down with a flannel and plain water :)
