When should I stop doing this...

I know it'll be a while...but right now my kids are young. My daughter is 2.5y rs and my son is 11 months, and they take baths together. It's just so much easier for me, and fun for them to give them both a bath at the same time. I'm just wondering since it's a boy and a girl...at what age should I start bathing my daughter separately? I have a friend with a 5yr old boy and a 2.5yr old girl and they still take baths together. So I'm just wondering what your opinions are as to when I should stop bathing them together...

  • when they start noticing their 'parts' are different. personally to me a 5 yr old shouldnt be bathing with a 2 yr old. I think you good for now but maybe in a year prolly should stop.

  • When they start to question the differences. I would say at around 5 or so.

  • I wouldn't say when they start to notice the difference. That happens young. I would say when one, or both of them express that they are uncomfortable bathing together.
