DS is 8 and he showers every night after dinner. He is a sweaty little thing and comes home from school (or playing outside on the weekend) FILTHY. I dont know what he gets up to but his hands alone are always black.
When he goes to his dads for 5days, its normal for him to shower once MAYBE twice in that whole time....soo gross. I love my boy but he is a grot and IMO needs to wash the filth off daily.

My kids (2, 4 and 7) get a bath or shower every night.
When we lived in Melbourne and DD1 was a lot younger it wasn't uncommon for her to miss the odd bath in winter. Frankly it was so cold we both dreaded it some days.

Mostly every day, more than once a day if its something special or she gets unusually filthy, but there is the odd occasion that we get home super late or something and she won't get one.

Every 2-3 days here. We top and tail wash each evening. Ds has incredibly dry skin. Nothing we have found helps at all and if he's bathed more frequently his skin cracks and bleeds all over .

DS showers with me every morning (or I'd never get a shower!) and has a bath each night, exception being like PP if we are out late and he falls asleep in the car on the way home. I also pop him in the shower or bath if he is particularly grumpy, he seems to forget and come out a new child!

Every day, but more out of routine than anything else. Pls ds2 does massive no2s and he is still in nappies so he still needs to be washed every day.
However I only wash their hair maybe once a week.

Not every day, but at least every second for DD (12m, 8.5m corrected). I'm about to move to daily as part of a pre-bedtime routine.
I would have expected by 2-ish kids were bathed / showered daily, it didn't even occur to me that not everyone did.

Every day for both girls (3 and 1), in the evenings partly because it's part of their bedtime routine and partly because by the end of the day they're both usually pretty grotty from playing outside and making mess with their dinner. They both get bathed together though

DD is washed every second day. Again, like pp's, our DD has dry skin and eczema. If she is bathed daily she ends up with dry skin all over her. She will get bathed every day, if she gets dirty etc. But every second day works for her skin right now.
