5 Signs It's Time to Stop Bathing With Your Kids

5 Signs It's Time to Stop Bathing With Your Kids

posted by Jill Smokler 


Many moms try to save time, water, and sanity by bathing with their children. Killing two birds with one stone for the win! But when should joint baths be put to an end? Here's how you know ...

You know it’s time to stop sharing a bath or a shower with your little one when any of the following occur:

  1. The entire bath consists of your child poking on you to test (and laugh at) your jiggle factor.
  2. The first time your child asks any of the following:
    • “Mommy, will my nipples get that big and lopsided when I’m bigger?”
    • “Mommy, why do you have those squiggly lines all over your belly like that?”
    • “Mommy, why are your boobies floppy like a cow’s?”
    • “Mommy, do you have a penis hiding under that hair?”
  3. Your child’s vocal range has expanded to the point that (s)he is able to graphically describe in vivid visual detail exactly how closely you shave, where your c-section scar ends, or the tattoo you have on your ass to everyone in the checkout line at Target.
  4. Your child seems to think the height of hilarity is dumping water in your face.
  5. He or she starts complaining about not having enough hot water. If you can complain about that, kid, you're on your own!

I never bathed with the kids with any regularity.  My daughter used to ask to shower with me once in a while.
