  • I'm married to their dad. He never bathed my older kids (they were 4, 5, and 8 when we started dating - but in fairness my 8 year old is very disabled and still needed help bathing, but I did it). I don't think it's ever okay for a male that's not a father to bathe/dress a child. It's not a fear of mine, just don't think it's a smart position to put a child or a man in. I was told by a policeman that it was a smart move on my part - my ex tried to say that my husband had sexually abused my oldest, but it was obviously proven false.

  • My husband baths and changes both of our kids. I have a 3 yo and a 7 month old.
