  • You mean on their own clean themselves in a shower rather than a tub? Or being in a shower? My babies are 1 and 2 and have been at my feet almost every day while I shower since they have been strong enough to sit up well. I bath them at night as part of our routine, but somedays in the a.m. I put them in there with me. Because I can't get up to do it alone, as the noise wakes them, which is why I also can't wait for nap time. The bathroom is on the other side of the bedroom wall.

  • My 3 and 5 year old girls take showers. The first time I put my swim suit on and took a shower with them so they wouldn't be scared. Now they love it. My 6 year old son is scared to shower so my husband is going to do as I did with the girls to see if it works!!!

  • My SD was 7.5. My SS was 4 or 5. And my DD has started taking them with me - she is 2. I give her baths if I am not getting a shower myself.
