How old is too old to shower/bath with your child?
Denikka - posted on 10/21/2012
My son is 3.5 and he still showers with me and with dad. My daughter is 1.5 and she also showers with both of us.
Like the other ladies said, it really all depends on comfort level.
For me, personally, I'm getting to the point with my son where I feel like I'll be stopping soon. He's heading towards school age and can bathe himself, so I don't see why he shouldn't. Occasionally, it won't bother me. Sometimes it's just more convenient. But in general, I figure he'll be completely on his own in the next year or so.

It's whatever your comfort level is and your child's. If you are both fine with it then it's not a problem, if you're uncomfortable with it then stop. My son is 6 1/2 and just started using the shower because he hated water in his face, the first time he got in was with me.
