I never showered with my son. I did put him in the bath with me when his dad wasnt home and that stopped around 1 and a half, when he could tell mommy was different! LOL

 It wasn't about age.. It was all about his height! Once he was tall enough to be looking straight at our stuff I stopped. :)

My son is 2 1/2 and my husband and I do not shower with him anymore......I think its about that time to start teaching that privates are just that "private"

I've never showered with DS but my husband does. Now that DS is almost 3, I think that we will stop altogether. I stopped showering with DD1 when she was about 3. DD2 is 9mo and I still shower with her. I don't have a problem being nude in front of my children, I stopped showering with them because they got too mobile in the shower. I don't like to have to fight someone for my shampoo/bodywash/loofa, lol!

My daughter was about 8 years old.

I stopped bathing with my son when he started to become curious about my body.  He was 4 and wanted to know why my parts looked different to dh's and his.  I knew that it was probably time to let him just shower with dad or by himself.  He is now 5 and he is very happy to bathe on his own.  I can still shower with dd. She is 3 and she hasn't really said anything about it.  She still likes mommy to get her "clean like a princess". LOL I am not sure what she means by that, but she still likes me shower with her.

I only showered once with my daughter and she's 3. The shower is my alone time! Lol
