I give my 17 month old a bath every night as part of the bedtime routine. Vary rarely do we skip bathtime. In the month we've had him, we have skipped maybe 3 nights.

We give our son (18 months) a bath each night except for the few rare occasions we get home to late and he's really tired and he just goes to bed.

It is mostly every day. We don't do bath before bed unless she is really messy. My SO gives her a bath in the afternoons. A bath wakes her up so we try not to give her one before bed.

We usually do every other night. For both of my kids (3yo and 17 month). When DS was a baby I gave him a bath everynight as part of our routine and in the winter months it dried out his skin so bad that it burned when we put lotion on. So I've just done every other night unless they are really messy. In the summer if I put sunscreen on them I gave them a bath that night even if it wasn't "bath night"
