My son is 2 ½, is it ok to shower with him? When should I stop? I don't see anything really wrong with it because he really doesn't pay attention to "mommys parts", just need some advice. Thanks!

My son will be 3 in May and he still showers with me. He's only made a comment one time about a mommy part, asking where my weenie went to lol I usually try to keep my legs crossed when he's looking my way or just try not to draw attention to my girl parts. When he starts paying more attention I'll bathe him separately, which I've already started to do more lately anyways because I need those few minutes to relax by MYSELF! I don't know if this helps, but at least you know you aren't the only one!

I agree with the other moms. It is okay ..I would stop when he starts asking questions.

my son is 2 3/4 yrs old and sees me in my "glory" frequently especially as he has a facination with the toilet and mummy going wees..... i had my period the other day and was using a pad when he walked in pointed at it and said it was a "mummy nappy!" as long as you explain that mummys and daddies or boys and girls have different parts and tell him its not ok to touch others bits then why not. if YOU feel uncomfortable than he will too and it will be time to stop until then let him learn and understand the human body :)

Living in a small house with one bathroom 2 sons and a daughter I have showered with my kids for a long time and never attempted to stop. They had no father in their life so with on bathroom every one showers with atleast one person. They have grown up seeing naked bodies so I see no reason to stop now. I am a good looking 30 years old and my twin sons are 10 and they still shower with me whenever they ask to which is quite often now because they get VERY curious and touchy in the shower. They are starting to go through puberty now and I can tell but until they don't want to shower with me anymore I will continue to do so I enjoy watching them GROW ;)

Guess it might be a little difficult cos is just two of us at home.

Hi Cassandra,
I dont think there is anything wrong with it. If he is still in diapers your both even about seeing body parts. ha ha. My oldest boy walked in on me taking a bath until he was 6. Then he said "Oh gross" and never came in again. I still leave the door open so I can hear my then 3 year old and she could be with me in the bathroom playing near by. Go for it.{:+)
