What age is inappropriate to bathe with your child?

Hi, I was just wondering what age everyone thinks is too old to be getting a bath or shower with their children? I was wondering for both sexes also.

I'm still nursing my 2 1/2 year old, lol! He sees me naked and vice versa daily. It is not weird at all for a two year old IMO.

I plan to nurse to two or later. I occasionally shower with my 16 month old. My 4 and 5 year olds see me nurse without a cover but they are a bit too curious and for me personally it wouldn't feel right being naked around them or bathing naked with them. They can bathe alone now anyway. I don't care what others do though.

Exactly. Ds1 who's 2 sees me nurse the baby daily. And i help him when he pottys. And when I am in a bind and need to shower the kids will be in the bathroom with me and their toys. Ds1 will hop in the shower with me. It's a toss if he gets undressed first tho. I think at 4 to 5 then Yea that's weird but def not 2

I was just wondering because i know when i was little it was normal for parents to bathe with their children past the age of two, or atleast i am pretty sure, and nowadays i see parents who think its just  wrong to do it period, my son is almost two and i shower with him all the time as it is easier and faster especially on the days i have to go to work. Im glad i am not alone with this.

I don't think it's ever really inappropriate, the child will grow out of it.

I get it, everyone has different comfort levels :) it would just be impossible at this point for us not to bathe together at least some of the time.
