Siblings bathing together?

I have two daughters born 12 months and 2 weeks apart. They'll be 5 and 6 next month, and they have bathed together since they were babies and have been taking showers now for a year. I bathed with my cousin up until we were about 6, and I remember taking baths with her. At what age is it time to stop bathing with your sister and do it on your own?

Whenever they are uncomfortable with it IMO. My two girls still bathe together. They are 7 & 4. They do more playing, splashing around, and goofing off than washing though when they do bathe together

That's what I'm thinking.

They wash each other's backs but they stay away from the butt and other areas. They sometimes say "ew I see your butt!" but it hasn't been a problem yet.

My parents made me bathe and shower with my sister. I disliked it and even at a young age felt like it was an invasion of privacy.

I also never saw bath time as play time, it was a place to wash and get out.

There is no reason they're bathing or showering together.

I didn't bath with my siblings but my 4 year old dd and 2 year old ds bathe together. I will stop when one of them wants to stop.

My kids have touched themselves when they were younger, but they've NEVER touched each other's privates.

They like it and it's easier for me. They share the same room, and will do so until they move out of my house, so eventually they'll see each other naked, I'm sure.
