    Default at what age did you leave your child in the bath without supervision?

    My kids are 8 (next month) 5.5, 2.5 and 4mths old and I never leave any of them in the bath unsupervised. My older 3 usually just shower anyway.

    DD is 2. I let her shower on her own (with the shower door open). If she is having a bath and I'm cooking dinner, she can play in the bath while I'm cooking as I can literally see the bathtub from the kitchen, but if I'm not cooking I sit with her.

    Mine are 2 and 4 and although they do get left to themselves in the bath and shower, I always call out or walk in and check on them. If I hear them playing and having fun thats kool but as soon as they go quiet I check lol

    Mine are 18 months (nearly), 3.5 and 7. I never leave the 18 month old but will leave the other 2 for a minute or two when I get their brother out and dressed. Once he's dressed they get out. My girls play silly buggers in the bath sometimes and I'm paranoid about one of them hitting their head or something or even just slipping. I don't want my 7 year old to have that responsibility. I will leave them in the shower together just not the bath.

    My oldest is almost 7 and I would leave her in the shower if she was on her own, but door open and I'd be nearby. But she tends to share the shower with her sister and I can't trust that kid at all so I'm always there.

    About 3ish. Our bathroom is in a central area of the house and we leave the door open so they can be heard. DS is now 6 - I'm a bit more laid back with him but am still popping in/calling out to DD (3) every few minutes.

    DD is just on 2.5 and I started leaving her in bath unsupervised in the last month or so.

    As the bathroom is upstairs, I never go downstairs though as I still like to be close and able to get to her quickly.

    Depends what you mean by 'leave'.

    26 mnth old DD is left 'unattended' in the bath tub sometimes. But I never go further then the next room & she talks/sings constantly while I'm gone.

    She can also swim & hold her breath underwater, so I highly doubt shed get up to anything in the 15secs I'm gone.

    Default Re: at what age did you leave your child in the bath without supervision?

    Around 3.5 years... But even then I'm in and out if the bathroom and never more than 5 metres away. If his noisy splashing and singing stops I bolt to the bathroom.
