 My kids are a year and 3 days apart. My DS is 4 (5 next month) and my DD is 3 (4 next month) When bath time rolls around i just stick them both in the tub. My sisters always telling me that there getting to big to have bath time together I don't think so though.

At what age should siblings stop bathing together??

Well the answer is sort of "whenever" or when one child becomes uncomfortable.  My son is 6 and my daughter is just about 3 1/2 and we stopped bathing them together a year ago only because it was too messy :)  Otherwise, they would still bathe together.  My son actually showers now, though.

Not sure my girls ar 4 and 3 and they bathe together.....but if it were girl and boy they would bathe separately.

My brother and I bathed together until I was pretty old (can't remember how old exactly)... but I think it was just when I finally got uncomfortable with it.  Then I started to shower while he was in the tub.  I'm almost two year older than him.  I don't remember ever thinking it was weird or being preoccupied with our differences or anything.  I don't think at the age your kids are there is anything wrong with it... unless, of course, the child is uncomfortable with it.

 I think they're fine. My 5 1/2 year old and 4 year old take baths together. But DD (5) lately has been wanting her own baths. Which is totally fine. I think if they're old enough to want to be separate then that's when. Whenever THEY are ready...

My Dd is 5 1/2 and my Ds is 19 months and they take baths together.
I was thinking about stopping their baths together soon.

I can't say. I never had opposite sex siblings bath together. My DDs are 18 mos apart & they did up until they were 8 & 10 (they are now 11 & 13). Of course that was also when the older one started growing boobs & I didn't feel it was necessary or right anymore.

I would say when they start pointing out each others differences, or touching those differences out of curiosity.

I say it is fine...just monitor them the whole time.

as far as I am concerned, they should stop bathing together when the first one decides they want privacy
