Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
I don't but only because I am a shower person and DS is terrified of the shower.
I used to, but am 9 months pregnant, so there's no way it works anymore:)
DH will get in with DD about every 1 in 10 baths, but he puts swim trunks on. She's almost three and he just feels more comfortable "covered up" :)
I've stopped bathing with her, but still shower. I don't mind, since we're both girls and there's no strange parts to explain.
DH said he would do so with our boys should we have any, but not the girls. I don't think I would shower/bathe with my boys either - at least not past a certain age.
We never have because DS freaked.. We just went on a trip and I asked DS if he wanted to shower with me and he said yes.. He loved it and will shower with one of us one to two times a week now.
I dont like to do it every night because I love taking a shower and thats kind of "me time", DH doesnt like showers and wants to get in and out a fast as he can..
One of us showers with him every time. We don't have a bathtub in our house, just a shower, so it's the only way he'd get clean. There's never been any issues. He knows that mommy has boobies, and he doesn't. He also knows that he and daddy have a penis but mommy doesn't. The only time I don't shower with him is when I am on my cycle. DH takes the whole week then.We'll see what happens when he gets older, but right now, DH and I are still comfortable with it.
Nope, we don't shower or bathe with my SO's toddler. We both shower in the mornings and SO's son gets bathed in the evenings. It's not a modesty thing on my part, tho. In the mornings SO brings his son into the bed after I get up, so that they have snuggles and can slowly wake up together. After I'm done showering I come back into the bedroom naked to get dressed. I don't really mind, I figure a naked body is a naked body... altho this naked preggo body isn't as eye-pleasing as it used to be, lol. I'm sure as he gets older tho, I'll feel like I should cover up.
I have memories of my mom walking down the hallway butt-naked after showers when I was a kid, but I think it's different when it's mom-daughter. I came out of that body, I have the same parts.. who cares :) If/when I have a daughter, I hope that she will know more about periods, boobs, and vaginas than she really wants to, lol.
I haven't tried it. I wouldn't mind doing it, except for 4 reasons: 1. I think he would scream his head off if water were landing on him, 2. I'm afraid he would slip and fall, 3. I like my showers really hot and 4. He's 2 already and by the time all those other things aren't issues anymore, it would be really weird. But maybe he'll shower with Daddy. Actually, it works out nicely for me because we have only boys. someday they can shower with Daddy and then I can get the shower to myself.
Also, I did bathe with DS a few times, last fall because I was pregnant with DS2 and couldn't bend over the tub comfortably, so I put on a swimsuit and joined him.
DD and DS will take a bath together (Not with me or DH in the tub)
we both will take showers with one or both kids though. The kids enjoy the showers.
