I usually bathe the baby during the day since I'm at home with her and we have the time. So she doesn't have a bath as part of her bedtime routine, but it doesn't seem to matter to her. She LOVES her bath so it's our relaxing alone time. Bath time with my toddler is so noisy and sometimes crazy! But sometimes I have my toddler play in the bath tub while I bathe the baby outside in the baby tub. It's good to mix it up.
