Advice on our nightly routine!

I have two little girls, 2.5 and 4.5 and my husband has done their bed and bath time routines pretty much since they were born. He just recently let me know that he is beginning to feel uncomfortable bathing my 4.5 year old. Is this something anybody else has gone through or is he just being silly?!

  1. My husband also does the nightly routine for our girls (ages 3 and 1). I don’t really think that there is a right answer, but I would say that the most important thing is to make sure that your daughter doesn’t feel uncomfortable about daddy giving her a bath. Once that happens, I would definitely say that you might need to start bathing her and let your husband continue to care for the younger one. Good luck!!

    1. Thanks! I know my daughter doesn’t care who bathes her so I may just start bathing her separately. We wanted to start doing this anyways because they have been making huge messes lately in the tub! 🙂

  2. That’s a great question, Melissa. Shelly is correct. There is no set age that bathes should stop from the opposite gendered parent. I would say when one or both, parent and/or child, becomes uncomfortable it is time to make a routine change.
