Is bathing with your 19 month old inapropriate?

My husband will hop in the shower with our 19 month old but it kinda freaks him out... Me I just hop in the tub with him a couple times a week and bust out with the foam alphabet and tub paint to get his brain going he loves it I am just wondering if ppl find it inapropriate or if Im not the only crazy mama out there

  • Why is it wrong after 2 years old? I don't think so. I shower with both of my children. My son is 3 1/2 and his sister is 2.

  • 19 month
    of course that is not a problem
    if husband feels weird than he does not have to bath with child

  • No me and dd shower together all the time and she is 22 months. I think same sex is diff. though. Maybe when he hits 2 then u should stop!

  • No it's not. You're just bathing. It's not appropriate when they start knowing body parts and start being curious.

  • i have a 2yo dd... we still take regular baths together.. Its just easier!! If i had a son i would probley still be taking a bath with him. But that is something Id have to talk to dh about since he is a guy.. Ive never grown up around boys so i dont know what age is right..

    Now on the flip side I do not feel comfortable with men bathing with girls.. Its just an issue I, myself have so dd has never bathed with dh..

  • I think until 2 is good... Maybe a little after. I would say once they start noticing the difference it should stop. My DD has showered with DH twice, the first time she smacked him in his testicles and said BALLS! She was 15 or 16 months. The second time she was 19 months, same thing. It's not happening again.

  • My daughter father is exactly the same way. I think it's kind of a guy thing. I stopped taking shower with my daughter when she started getting curious. It's just kind of what is normal for your family.
