    I shower every morning and am partial to an evening shower on occasion as well. I wash my hair every 3rd day even though it needs it every second. I just unleash a can of dry shampoo on it so I don't look homeless. I do however often forget to put on deodorant. I don't know why I forget given I've worn it for 25 years, but I do. Luckily I don't sweat unless I've been working out.

    And I never wear it before I go to the gym. Ever. What a troll.

    I've always had two showers a day & love it. After having a newborn I may not make it into the shower until 10-11am but it always feels soooo good to have a shower & get out of PJ's I find I'm craving a shower even more after having a baby as now I seem to get covered in DD spitting up & milk when feeding haha.

    This is me too!

    When DS1 was a newborn/baby I regularly went days without a shower; he never slept without me, not even that 3pm catnap you speak of. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a baby that sleeps.

    Yeah having a shower every other day when you aren't visibly and obviously dirty is not poor personal hygiene. Might not be what you like to do which is fine, but it is not poor personal hygiene and it will not cause preventable diseases.

    How about a lack of water? We use tank water and until a week ago only had half a tank left. I don't see the point in showering daily if I've just been bumming around the house. I don't even bath the kids every day.

    I think we've had a thread like this before and a persons definition of poor hygiene is definitely shaped my upbringing and location. I'm from Queensland where it's pretty sweaty every day for 10 months a year and I was brought up to have a shower on waking and before going to bed. I was told it was poor hygiene not to and I can't shake that as I do truly believe that any less than one a day is gross. Again because of my upbringing not scientific facts.

    In the other thread we had I do think it made a difference if you were from a cold country or southern Australia as it's less sweaty in those areas and showering wasn't as necessary.

    I must admit that I rarely have to be concerned about getting cold when nude and if anything the nice warm shower is a treat in winter and I have about 3 a day. Lol.

    it is not 'unhygenic' to not bath daily,
    Actually bathing daily is very bad for our skin :/
    dont shower daily in winter because to do so means I damn near scratch my skin off for hours afterwards and have to lather myself in cream just to sooth the end result (over dry skin from washing it to much)

    I do in summer, actually in the full intensity of summer Ive been known to shower under luke warm water twice a day and a quick dip into the paddle pool in the middle as well because 37-42 degree days leave you yucky

    Can't say I shower daily, I too don't think too much of myself and therefore don't really take much pride in my whole appearance. I will shower every second to third day, and I rarely wash my hair, but that's because every time I do I have handfuls of my hair that fall out and my hair is already really thin. I don't think it's gross as I never really go out or do anything anyway. If I'm going to go out somewhere nice (not my mums or mil) I'll always shower before hand.
    I'm pretty gross though ahah and often don't use deodorant and I just never stink, my DH always tells me if I do haha
