    My DD has a bath every second day, but she's 8 months and not crawling yet Once she's moving about and getting pretty grotty I'll move it up to once a day.

    In the situation in the op I'd be annoyed too, there's a big difference between skipping a bath because the child is already clean and just being too lazy to see to their needs

    Daily showers here as well. There is of course the odd time here and there where they go without a bath some days though.

    Mine go daily as well. Only because they're the type of kids that lie to roll in dirt lol but when they were little they only got bathed every second day but that's because they weren't dirty.

    I think at 5 and 7 daily showers and or baths should be done and really there isn't any excuse unless they have skin issues.

    DS is 2.5 years old and he has a bath or shower every night and sometimes jumps in the shower with me in the morning as well.

    Every night and Sunday mornings before church.

    Mostly because it's their bedtime routine.

    We will impromptu shower if they are particularly dirty or cold.

    It's no biggy if they skip. I'm sure they've even gone two days without.

    Every second day with DS1 generally. He's a 4 year old and eternally grotty but we have extremely hard water here and if I wash him every day his eczema flares up something awful no matter what creams etc I use . But if he's stinky he gets a bath/shower no matter what.
    DS2 at the moment comes in the shower with me because it's easiest. He much prefers that to a bath but he's only little so that will probably change. He's also starting to get the beginnings of eczema on his cheeks so we'll probably have the same problem with him.

    My 5 month old, 2.5 yo and 4 yo all bath daily.

    I think not bathing for an entire weekend is to much, especially if its noticeable or smellable! I hope he at least washed their bottoms!

    The mum is justified in her reaction.

    Mine are 12, 7, 6 and 4 and they bath or shower daily. Sometimes they miss it if we are out, or doing something, but will often have one the next morning instead.

    Sounds like in the OP the dad was just lazy and couldn't be bothered washing the kids all weekend as opposed to the every second day routine or everyday apart from if their tired that previous posters had mentioned.
