My 5yo daughter is really responsible and actually very good with her sister. She knows she's not supposed to pick her up etc. But the've never been alone in the same room for more than the time I need to go to the bathroom or just get the door etc.
Is it safe to leave them alone in a room for like 15 minutes to take a shower or cook etc?

I'd say it is fine if your trust your 5 yo. I leave my 3 yo in the room with her one month old brother at various times thorugh out the day. I may be up folding laundry, washing bottles, etc. She knows to just get me if he starts to cry. I hear him anyway. As for showers, I usually get my little guy sleeping first, and my DD just plays with her toys while I shower.
