    My kids are 8, 4 and 2 and get bathed or showered daily as part of their bedtime routine. Ds1's hands are usually pretty dirty from pushing his wheelchair and the other 2 love playing outside and get pretty messy. Plus dd often comes home from preschool with paint or something all over herself. But if they miss a bath, it's no big deal.

    My kids have always been bathed daily from when they were born. My bubs were chubbas and the creases of their skin would smell etc if they weren't bathed regularly. Now at almost 3 and 4 they simply need a bath every night becuase of how dirty they get through the day. I really hate the thought of them getting in their beds dirty (ewww) so they are bathed every night without fail. DS gets eczema too quite bad, but I have been told daily bathing in a special ph balancer is better than skipping baths as it helps with bacteria and also to wash away flaking skin etc.

    Bath has been part of the night time routine in this house since birth. It helps children know what happens next in the evenings.

    I would say our kids are bathed on average 5 nights a week. Sometimes we are out late, or something is going on at dinner time in our house and baths or showers don't fit into the routine. But, most of the time they do. Our ds (now nearly 6.5) didn't used to get that dirty, but in the last 18 months has got more dirty than ever before on a regular basis, so he often needs a bath/shower. Our 19mo dd LOVES the shower and would be in it multiple times a day if given a chance! She also gets very dirty so it is somewhat necessary. We wash her hair most nights too (not our ds as he screams when his hair is washed, so he gets it washed twice a week at most).

    DS is 9 months old and has a daily morning bath and sometimes an additional night time bath. Night baths get him too excited so I only give him one if he's had a very messy dinner. He loves his morning bath - that's really the only reason why he's bathed daily.

    I have much younger kids and if im not feeling well they will skip a day but still get a warm soapy washer over themselves.

    5 & 7?! As if thats not old enough to shower on their own?!?!

    Eta - I havent read any other replies so no judgement is intended.
