I need to stop doing it.  My boy loves lying on sis' belly and caresses it with his face.  They are cute in the bath tube together.  Should I stop doing it?

I think they are fine. I have my 10 year old or 9 year old get in the tub to help bath my almost 2 year old. We have never had a problem. I'm there with them.

 Are they of different gender and totally nake too?  My son loves to touch smooth skin.  He holds his sis from the back when she changes and puts his head on her back.  I hope he is okay.

I see nothing wrong with it. Just tell them no touching each others private parts.

As long as u teach personal boundaries (she don't touch him he do t touch her area) it's fine In my opinion plus makes for a quicker bath time

Yeah, my almost 2year old is a boy and the older ones are girls. He is way too young for it to be a problem. You shouldn't worry even a little about it.

So long as private parts aren't being touched, I see no issues. Mine bathed together until they were 4&6, dd being the youngest.

 I have.  My daugher somtimes sings "I love your weewee" to my son.  They just giggle and have a good laugh.

 It is much easier to bathe two at once.
