Hi to All moms with boy/girl twins.


Mine are almost 5 yrs-old and usually take their bath together; is it acceptable to still do so and when should I start be more careful and

I don't have twins, nor do I have a son and daughter close to the same age. I have 2 girls. However, My daughter who recently turned 7, is starting to get really self-conscience about who see's her naked and going to the bathroom.


I don't see an issue what-so-ever that your children are still bathing together. They are only 5. I would guess in a couple of years though, they might start to wean themselves once they understand more about their bodies and become slightly more embarrassed and self-conscience about who see's them naked. I really think this is something they will out-grow on their own within the next couple of years.


I wouldn't worry about a thing and I don't think it's weird that they bathe together. I think it's wonderful that they get along as well as they do and I'm jealous that mine don't!

Rouri,

I think you should ask their pediatrician. I have a 7.5 and 4 year old that get along so well and used to take baths together. I didn't really think too much of it, but I am pretty sure it isn't recommended so we stopped bathing them together. It is too bad because they really just wanted to have fun in the water. Luckily they really are too big to fit in the tub together. I honestly don't know how old is too old, which is why I would recommend asking a pediatrician.

How fun that they get along so well. My kids do too right now and I hope it continues to be that way.

Thank you Ladies for your responses -


I'll sure talk to the pediatrician and have her opinion on the subject; but deep down I just want them to continue having their bath together..just don't want them to grow up!


As you said,
