  • I don't know the boys have always taken baths together up until one goes through puberity. It's just easier and they use less water. I don't see a problem. As a matter of fact our grandson takes a bath with his little uncles when he spends the night. Three boys in a tub can be fun.

  • How old is the brother? My kids always took them together. It's so much easier that way and they have so much fun.

  • My daughter went through something like that. Although she was an only child at the time. She went through a phase where she didnt want to take baths and would cry the whole time she was in the tub. We bought her some stuff to make it fun just for her. Like special toys, or bath fizzies that change the water colors. She loved them so that helped. I think its probably just a phase they go through.
