DH giving DD baths?

So many times I've seen stuff like this posted. Isn't that the same scenario as me giving my DS a bath?

DH and I both pass out baths to our DS, and neither of us feel weird. However, since my DH was working out of town, I had to give DS a bath myself. Which never really crossed my mind of it being weird...

Same thing, if he was home all the time and we had a DD, he would bathe her, no questions asked...

I don't think it has anything to do with perversion or discomfort, baby has to be cleaned. Hineys too. And that's Mommy and Daddy's job, as is teaching baby to take care of him/her self.

So why is it such a big deal?

  • So, the last question that was just posted on this subject (8 or so questions prior to this one) people were chiming in, "Oh, only until age 2." or "DH is uncomfortable..."

    I don't understand why?

  • I don't see anything weird about it. It's parenting.

  • I also can't see why people would consider it inappropriate for a man to bathe his daughter. So what is a single father to do? Find a female friend willing to bathe his child?! THAT would be creepy! "Hi my daughter needs a bath, can you come over and do it?"

  • I agree.

    One of my guy friends told me that he felt wierd changing his DD's diaper since he has to touch her punanny...lol. I personally don't feel wierd changing/bathing my son. I carried him for 9 months is probably why I feel differently.
