For Mommies with sons

At what age did your husband stop taking a shower with your son? NO bashing! I thought by age 4.

  • My boys stopped bathing/showering with me around age 3-4. They showered with Dad always. Like out camping even as preteens they all went in together. Same sex is no big problem. Opposite sex parent is where great care needs to be taken.

  • My son is almost 4, we both still take showers with him occasionally.. but he prefers a bath anyways... I was probably gonna stop soon anyways just cuz he is getting a little more observant, but i dont have a problem with nudity or making my son ever feel like it is something to be ashamed of......

  • Well, my son is still only 19 months old, however, my husband and I have had a talk about when we thought it would be appropriate to stop taking showers/ baths together, and we decided around the age of 3 or 4.

  • We both took a shower with our son up until about a month ago because he is becoming more observant as far as pointing at body parts! I think the older the child gets the weirder it gets. but as long as you and your dh are comfortable with it then it shouldnt matter, but 4 seems like a good age to stop

  • My husband never took a shower with our son, I bathed him until he was 4 then he did it by himself and dad would pitch in if he needed help washing his hair.

  • My hubby never showered with our son but I stopped when he was under 2. My daughter is 2 and will sometimes take a bath with me.

  • I stopped at 4, it wasnt my hubby it's me because I stay at home. My other son is three and stopped with him early because he started pointing things out which I didnt feel comfortable with.

  • He still does once in a while but my son is only 3 yrs old. I remember my mom would take me a bath with her when I was an infant and I still remember her body parts like it was just yesterday lol. I guess they haunted me for life lol i'm kidding.
