    DS is 3yo and we're phasing it out now and talking about privacy and boundaries. I have very clear memories from 2.5yo onwards, so I want to phase it out before DS really remembers it. In a few more months when DS2 can sit unassisted we'll have them share a bath though.

    I don't actually often shower with the kids anyway because there's 4 of them I'm normally with the little one while the other 3 shower - but there's certainly no discomfort with it at this stage. My eldest turns 7 in a few weeks and has never had an issue with being naked around me or his dad or his brothers and sister. When any of them start to feel uncomfortable or it starts to feel weird to me we will change things up.

    When they get uncomfortable.

    DSD asked to stop at 5, DSS at 6.

    ETA: I actually rarely showered with them as I shower in the morning and they prefer evening, so it was their dad they showered with.

    I have 2 DDs 5 and 2 and I run the shower and we just rotate through. Not enough water to share. I get so annoyed when they hop in with me then complain I'm stealing all the water.

    My eldest is complaining about having to share a bath with her sister now. But I'm on tank water so still pushing it. It's not about modesty it's about wanting all of the bath to herself.

    My girls will never not see me naked. But if they want privacy I will respect that,

    I get "why is your tummy so big and floppy?" I use it as a learning exercise and say because mummy eats too much sugar.
