  • in MY home we're unusually modest, so probably 1 year. other homes..... 4? 5? Some families, esp. co sleeping or extended breastfeeding are so close/together 24/7 so maybe even as old are 6-8? I guess I am old fashioned, as long as there's no abuse it's not weird/odd to me. I never bathed WITH anyone but since I had hair down to my knees and couldn't shampoo/condition it without help, my dad bathed me til I was almost 10! (mom worked nights or else I'm sure she would have)

  • Either my husband or myself would shower with our daughter. She hated the bath, but was perfectly fine being held in the shower. We just recently stopped doing it (she's 7 months).

  • I showered with my oldest until he was about 3 and a half, we stopped when he started noticing the differences between mommy and himself. My second I only showered with him until he was two, he noticed the differences much earlier. I have only showered with my youngest a few times because he bathes with the second child now, they are 2 and 4.

  • When 1 or more of them gets uncomfortable with it. Really, unless someone is implying something sexual in nature, it's just a shower!

  • wow, at a year? that's not old fashioned, that signifies a bigger problem... is it also wrong to BF?

  • Ummmm I never knew a dad who showered with his daughter. My dad NEVER showered or bathed with me. Mom showering with daughters or sons I think at about 3 you should stop.i actually remember my mom taking baths with me till I was about three.

  • We have never bathed with our son. I just find it odd. But if you do choose to I think 2 would old enough.

  • Depends on the family. Not all families are uptight about being nude in front of one another. Nudity does not mean sex.

  • no, not wrong to bf! I was implying they're together more often, bonded, more attached, etc. I also have a few friends who've had to nurse in the shower!!! I am suuuuuper modest/uptight. So 1y/o in my home is old enough. I don't mind a formal sit down talk about bodies but I don't want questions about mine asked to my face.
