For the most part we do every other day for sure every other day on the hair. It is such a pain getting it dry before bed.

We have to do it less often because the more we bathe her, the worse her eczema is. :( I do wipe her down with a wet washcloth every night before bed. Just no soap.

Every day without fail. Sometimes twice on days like today when I can't keep him out of MY shower. But - we don't have the issue of the cold weather and he's gets so dirty playing outside most days. Thankfully he doesn't have sensitive skin.

Everyday... it is such a down time for him... it is part of his routine. He also likes to take a shower with DH in the morning, so sometimes it is twice a day!

Us too. If I bathe her everyday she looks like a little lobster. I also put eczema lotion on her after every bath and she still has dry spots. She is like her mama! In the summer it is everyday because we play outside and she gets hot but the weather doesnt affect her skin as much either. But during the winter its every few days.

I said every other day, but it really depends on what happens in the day. It's more like every day for a few days, then maybe we'll skip a day here or there.

Same here......some days we just don't have the time or whatnot, but I try to get him in every day because he does really enjoy bath time.

Weird, we are the opposite..the less we bathe her, the worse her eczema gets!!

It's normally every other day for us...although lately, she has a habit of putting her hands in her hair while she's eating, so it's been everyday this week!
