I don't think there's anything wrong with it.
Sara takes showers with her daddy, and she doesn't notice any differences yet...when she does, thats when we'll quit.
But I don't have a problem bathing with sara for a few more years...3 or 4.

i bathe with lylian EVERY time she takes a bath. it's much easier for me to just get in, wash up, and thne pull her in with me. plus she likes bathes and deep water, so if i am not in there, then i would have to put a tiny bit of water for her, and she would try to get out.

sam doesnt really take bathes with her anymore now that shes older and "grabby" haha :P but we do sometimes take "family" showers, but other than that he doesnt really take baths with her unless he HAS to give her a bath, he will usually shower with her. but shes also not tall enough to be right in his goods. but i am sureby the timeshes 2 he probably will say noo way to showering with her at all. idk how long i will bathe with lylian. probably until she stops slipping when she sits in the bath so i dont have to be right next to her to catch her from drowning. maybe 2-3.

I probably wont bathe with my son due to fear of "floating logs" or him peeing in the water LOL isn't that silly???

I'm not sure how socity looks upon it, but i bathe with my 3 yr old son and so does my husband! If parents make it weird for their children, then the child might think something is wrong with them for being naked. I definately don't plan on bathing with him much longer tho.

We take turns taking a bath with our daughter for her bathtime. So we both do it and we're usually both in the bathroom during bathtime, whoevers not in the tub has to wash her hair, have her towel, diaper, outfit and a bottle ready for when its time to get out.

We don't take baths but sometimes shower. As a matter of fact my Husband took a shower with Natalie today. I see nothing wrong with it at all. It's natural, there is no need to make the body a sexual thing when it isn't. I'm sure there will come a time when it will stop, but right now, I see no problem with it.

i personally think up to the age of 2 might be ok. my husband is weird about it too past a certain age. he hasn't had much chance to bathe with our son so i'm not sure how he'd feel about it. i haven't bathed with them in a while, personally don't care to bathe in their pee and the thought bothers me lol. i still will ocassionally let my 3 year old daughter bathe with me though especially if i'm in a rush.

My 3 yr old still takes a bath with me. My 5yr old IMO is way to big. He takes baths with his brother and sister.

I think its fine for mom and dad up to a certain time. I used to bathe with lily a lot when she hated baths. Now she likes it soo I dont. Occasionally if we are in a rush Ill hop in the shower with her.

My son is 2 and he takes showers with me or my SO. We live in an apt and only have a standup shower so it's the only way we can bathe him. He's getting to the point now where we could probably just stand right outside the shower and help him wash without getting in, but it doesnt really bother me.
