How old was your child when you let them have alone time in the bath?

My youngest was 3ish and I don't go far, just put laundry away in the bedrooms that are next door to the bathroom. My son was probably 4.

At about 12-14 months I would run to the laundry room (next to the bathroom) to grab a towel if i needed. She was about 2.5 before I could leave the room for a few minutes or run downstairs if I needed to. She would always talk to me while I was out the bathroom or I just had to say make some noise and she would.

Quoting ashley + 2:" My youngest was 3ish and I don't go far, just put laundry away in the bedrooms that are next door to the bathroom. My son was probably 4."

About this age. around 3 and it was only to do do quick things and she got checked on a million times. Now shes 5 and when she bathes alone I'll leave her up there and I tell her to call me when shes done but most of the time she bathes with her one year old sister so I stay in there with them.

3 or 4.



I don't let my 2 year old bathe by herself mostly because she stands up and tries to jump.

Thanks ladies, DS will be 3 in May and SO thinks he's ready to have some alone time in the bath. Our place is pretty tiny and the bathroom is in the middle of the house so I can hear him where ever I am. I've left him to get a towel and stuff but never let him play alone.
