    Default Shampooing one year old's hair

    Just wondering if / how often you shampoo your 1yo hair?

    Ever since DS has sat up in the bath I rarely shampoo his hair because of the painful process of washing the suds out and DS having a big sook about it.

    Just wondering if shampooing is important at that age or if soapy bath water is enough?

    Ds is 2.5 and I only wash it with shampoo after preschool. Or if it's dirty

    I usually do DS hair every second day when we are in the shower ( unless he has decided to run his avocado fingers through his hair!) and have been doing so since about 4 months so he is used to it I suppose!
    I do have this Elmo bucket thingy someone gave me with a rubber lip that goes over their forehead and stops water from getting in their eyes that I use when he is in the bath, not sure where you get it from though

    Every 2nd or 3rd day usually....unless he rubs his food in his hair as a PP said, haha!

    I just lay him down to wash the shampoo out, just like a newborn. Can't you do the same?

    DS has showers usually and I wash his hair once a week, after swimming. As long as there's no food in it of course.
