  • not at all. i have a 5 yr old who still showers with me from time to time.

    you'll blink and she'll be 20 so enjoy moments like that. who cares what others think.

  • I dont see a problem with it. I dont really do it so much anymore but it is because with me and the 17 month old in the bath, there isn't much room! lol

  • nope, i bathed & showered with my daughter until she was say 5ish, when she was around 2 that is the only was i could get her to take a bath. be careful though. your sweet baby could pee (or worse) while you are in there... :)

  • I don't think there's anything wrong with it but I'm not comfortable doing it. My son is only 8 months and I won't bathe with him. Mostly cuz it's too much of a hassle but even so I just don't feel right. But that's just me. It might be different if I had a girl but I doubt it. There's nothing WRONG with it and I have nothing against people who are comfortable with doing it.

  • No not weird.. I love taking baths with my dd.. we have fun playing in the water & shes like a lil fish so she is always in the best moods when we take a bath.

    IMO its only weird when they are MUCH older & opposite sex... I think about the age 4 lil dd shouldnt see daddies naked anymore, ect.

    For Breezy my dd knows her anatomy, and understands we have the same stuff.. she is only 2.5. its not weird....

  • I just bathed with my 10 week old son last night. I don't find it wierd. At a certain may get to be though lol. But for now, he's young enough and he'll only be that way for so long so.....I'm enjoying the priceless moments :)

  • I have yet to take a shower by myself since I have been a mother. Could someone tell me what it's like?

  • Nothing wrong at all with bathing with a baby! Except when they decide to pee or poo in the tub, that is... LOL I had that happen once when my son was just a few months old. ewwwww....
