boy and girl bathing together

is this okay? until what age? i would love to start bathing my kids together when my baby (3 months now) can sit in the tub with my son (21 months). i think it will help my bedtime routine out great, right now my hubby works 2nd so i have to give 2 seperate baths and 2 seperate bed times. i would love to bathe them both and send them to bed :)

  • I think it's fine until they get curious. My 3 yr old girl and 1 yr old boy still bath together.

  • I would bath them together until they were 3 and 5 maybe. I don't see a problem with it until they start noticing the differences and it makes them feel weird.

  • I agree with sleeping beautee, I would say 3 and 5 are a good age to put a stop to it.

  • I agree with mommyoftwo388........ until they get curious. No hard age limit... go by how they act.

  • My niece and my youngest son bathe together sometimes - though it's about time now to stop. He's 4 and she's 5 and up until this summer there wasn't much curiousity, but he especially is starting to be quite curious so I think we'll stop it.

  • My mom once bathed my daughter with my younger brother (she was 1 he was 5). I can honestly say I flipped out. I didn't think it was okay and I was really upset that she did this without even asking first. My mom didn't see anything wrong with it though.

  • When my BIL and him daughter (about 7 months younger than my youngest). I would bath my 2 boys and my niece together. From when they where around 7months, 14months and 33month. Up until my oldest was 3 1/2 years old I stopped letting him bath with them. But continued letting my youngest son and niece bath together.
