  • I don't know. I have two boys (5 & 6months) and they have never seen me naked. I'm big on privacy.

  • I say when they stare and start to ask questions. For us our boys were around 3 or 4.

  • I stopped taking showers with my ds when he was 3 and started to question my "parts". He's 7 now and it's not a big deal to me if he walks in while I'm changing and in my bra....but he never ever sees me naked!

  • When my oldest child was 18 months old he reached up and tried to grab my pubic hair -- that was the day I stopped being naked in front of him!

  • Don't know..haven't gotten to that point yet, but I do feel it is important that they be aware of the differences between boys and girls. Nudity should not be shameful, but they should be taught that is is not ok in most situations.

  • I stopped when my son(s) were around 2. They're now 9 and 11 and I do breastfeed in front of them, but I am discreet.

  • I've never been naked in front of my boys. They know boys have penises and girls don't. They know mommy is a girl and they are boys. The youngest is 2 years.
