  • My older son was 5 before I stopped showering with him. He never asked any questions or said anything. My younger son is now 3 and a half and I am done showering with him. He asks too many question and grabs at me. My baby is 4 months old and we will be showering together for a while.

  • When they are old enough to notice the difference, I think 3 for a child of the opposite sex, or 4 at the latest for one of the same sex as the parent bathing them.

  • Whenever you feel uncomfortable. DH and I both shower with our 4 year old boy and 2 year old girl. They also take baths together. It is a very personal decision. It does not feel uncomfortable to anyone in our family yet, but we are fairly open with our nudity around our house and don't make a big deal about it.

  • LOL, my SO showered with his dad and brother until they were tall enough and old enough to realize dad's penis was at their forehead..at that point it was not longer fun, cool, or cute!!! I love that story when he tells it...I showered with my mom for awhile, when we lived with my grandma, she helped me wash my hair and my grandma quit fussin about her water bill..i think i was about 7...
