    Door closed to everyone including the kids! Even as babies I've always kept a baby bouncer or jumperoo type thing in the room closest to the bathroom and during the day I pop baby into it and go to the toilet alone. I guess I'm just not one for sharing lol

    Open door household. It's not like we actively seek each other out to ogle at while pooping 😂

    Our bathroom is away from everywhere so you don't accidentally stumble upon it unless you're seeking it out.

    This. Mine are 4 and 6 and I still can't shower in peace!!!

    Doors closed for toilets. We have a toilet in the ensuite, but with its own door and I will use it while DH is showering, but the door is always closed!

    The other toilet is off the passage so is always shut too. The kids still interrupt, but DH and I leave each other alone unless he's telling me he needs to go to a fire or something.

    Periods and kids is something I totally wasn't prepared for! Dd was in the toilet with me the day af finally returned (with no warning of course). Her announcing "aw mummy, you poo on your undies" was rather disconcerting! Then trying to work out how to explain that I definitely hadn't pooed myself was a challenge! I also could have done without her telling dh about my apparent lack of bowel control too. I miss privacy.

    Bathroom is separate to both toilets so there is no need to keep the door open or let anyone in.

    DW and I shower together (double shower so not in each other's way) and use the bathroom at the same time but toilet is another matter.

    I love DW but don't need to hear or see what's going on in there and vice versa. There are somethings that need to be kept private and I get grossed out easily so no thanks haha.

    PS - it's different with kids and that would be fine... To a certain age.

    Open door here too, but tend to close when showering otherwise DD tries to climb in the shower with whoever is in there, full clothed!

    😂 I've been happy to talk to them about my period (used to just say it just meant I had no baby in my tummy), but the whole inserting and removal of cups is something I feel they don't need a memory of!!

    DH is an open door person, I however am not. Closed, locked and checked a couple of times to make sure it's locked!

    Default Another bathroom thread

    Closed mainly. We have lived together for nearly a decade and I would still be very annoyed if he walked in on me, and horrified if I walked in on him when we first started dating I would practically burst because I wouldn't go to the loo around him!

    In saying that, there have been dire times though (gastro/postnatal etc) where we have seen things that can't be unseen
