    Hi @********** Yes, my DD had excema too. What age did your babies grow out of it? Is there a general age when this happens or is it different for each child?

    Im not sure. Mine grew out of it by 5. The first couple of years were the worst, even had to wear mittens at night.

    Default Bathing a newborn, how often do you bath baby?

    When he was a newborn every few days, then became every second day (he’s two now) but if he eats something messy for dinner he has a bath after.

    I’m so grateful for this thread. People look at me crazy when I say I don’t bathe my bub every night.

    DD1 we did every night until her skin flared up then every 2nd to 3rd night and it settled down. Even though we were always just water no soap.

    DD2 has been every 2nd to 3rd night since born- no real skin issues besides a bit of a rash related to her allergies but all clear once they were sorted.

    DD2 is now 2.5 and we still don’t bath/shower nightly. Really depends what we’ve been doing during the day and how our night is going. Obviously is she’s dirty she’s showered or bathed but we use wet face washers throughout the day and she’s toilet trained- will still use baby wipes to freshen up if needed though. I’d say she probably has 5 showers or baths per week on average. Sometimes if I know we’re going to be busy that night we will shower in the morning if we skipped the night before.

    I love the fact that my girls don’t need to bath as part of their bedtime routine makes going out heaps easier as we then don’t have to rush home to do bath ect.

Stuff everyone else lol. We only bath DD every night because she loves it so much, haha and by "we" i mean her Dad. Gets them both outta my hair for an hour so i can prep tea. If she didnt enjoy it, we wouldnt do it. And yes, i like the idea of it actually not being part of the routine for flexibilty. My DD gets a bit confused now if she doesnt have a bath, we find it difficult to get her into bed because she's so used to bed, pjs then straight from bathroom to bedroom.

    Oh don’t get me wrong could not care less what other people think. It’s what works for us. But I did think we were definitely in the minority not bathing nightly

    We washed bub every 2 - 3 days until she was about 2 weeks old and then every night. It's part of our night time routine now. She's 12 weeks and will fall asleep in the bath xResized_20191121_200540.jpg
