    bath is a noun, bathe is a verb:
    I was having a bath.
    I was bathing the baby.

    And what do you think about: I usually bath my baby in the evening?

    I think "bathe and bath" are verbs. But "bath" is a noun too. So we can say :To bath the baby and to have a bath.

    Re: bath/bathe

    True you can say bath a baby but I think bathe has a higher frequency or at least I avoid using it as verb. As Teia said bath is used with verbs like:have, take, give, run..

    The answer is negative. It`s not correct. "Bath" is a noun and "bathe" is a verb
    I took a bath.
    I`ll have a bath.
    I bathed the baby.

    This is what I know that bath is a noun and bathe is a verb until I saw these examples:


    * I'll bath the baby.
    * We also do cleaning with ourselves like we bath everyday and wear new clothes
