Re: Random bath, etc. poll

  • 1. How often do you change bath towels and/or washcloths for DC? Wash cloths--every day, towel--once a week.

    2. Do you rinse DC with the same bath water you wash them in, or drain it, then rinse with fresh water? The same water. And it occurred to me that maybe that's gross. LOL. She's never filthy though, since we bathe her daily.

    3. Do you reuse PJ's for multiple nights, or use a fresh pair each night? usually new ones each night. She usually gets at least a little food on them at breakfast.

    4. How often do you brush LO's teeth? once a day, at night after bathtime--sometimes she "brushes them herself" in the mornings too (AKA gnaws & sucks on the toothbrush).

    5. How often do you give LO a bath? typically every day--we'll skip occasionally, but she likes her bath, so she usually requests it.

    6. How often do you wash his/her hair? typically at every bath. sometimes I'll just wet it and not use shampoo.

    ETA: 7. we blow dry DD's hair.. we did it a few times just for fun, now it's a requirement. hehe. I love how smooth & soft it makes her hair, plus it takes like 2 minutes, so I don't mind.

  • 1. How often do you change bath towels and/or washcloths for DC? Towel - every few baths. I normally don't use a washcloth, just my hands or a sponge.

    2. Do you rinse DC with the same bath water you wash them in, or drain it, then rinse with fresh water? We have a bathtub that continuously keeps the water flowing, so the dirty water rinses away

    3. Do you reuse PJ's for multiple nights, or use a fresh pair each night? She's been wearing the onesies with the feet during the day so we just keep her in it at night, then put a new outfit on the next morning.

    4. How often do you brush LO's teeth? n/a

    5. How often do you give LO a bath? I am so bad at this. I try for every other day, but it usually ends up being 2x a week. But I mean, she's just laying around all day, It's not like she's getting dirty.

    6. How often do you wash his/her hair? Everytime we give a bath

    ETA 7: She only has a peach fuzz that I dry off with the towel. ;)

    4. How often do you brush LO's teeth? n/a

    I wouldn't say n/a.  I started brushing Allie's "teeth" when she was 4 months old.  She didn't have any teeth.  I would brush her gums to get her used to it.  It helped I think... she loves getting her teeth brushed!
