It's bathtime around here! Cafe Suzanne in Baby Buzz is talking about how often to bathe infants. And there's a fun poll going on in Toddler Moms that asks how often mamas soak their toddlers (you'll have to join the group to see it). I was surprised to find that a third of moms bathe their 18 month olds to preschoolers every single day. Wow. I guess I just don't have the energy for that -- despite how filthy my kids get. My son hates washing his hair, and once I let my daughter in the water, I can't seem to ever get her out!

Another third of moms said they give their tots a tub every 3 to 4 days, so it seems as if it's one extreme or the other.

How often do you bathe your kids? If you douse them every 1-2 days, do you do it more to make yourself feel better, or do your kids just seem to attract dirt?
