Just that really.

Ds1 is 9 and dd is 7, I can't remember the last time they had a bath together, so I'd say at least 18 months ago if not more. Ds1 started preferring a shower, there was less room, dd enjoyed having a bath with baby brother so it just happened gradually I think.

My 6 year old is starting to ask for his bath alone without his 4 year old sister in there aswel . Not that he's bashful just a space issue I think .

I'm just wondering this too. Same gender here but agree space might become the issue as oldest is now 6.

Ds1 is 10 and ds2 is 6. They stopped about 6 months to a year ago. Was a gradual thing as ds1 started having more showers.

I stopped it when they were 3 & 1. A desperate attempt to minimise germ sharing after I was in trouble at work after too much time sick.

About 12-18 months from memory

A real range there then. I guess it depends on gender quite a bit.

My DS and DD1 were about 6 and 4 when they stopped because DD2 had come along and DD1 loved having baths with her. They had baths together until about 10 and 6 they had always enjoyed it but DD1 definitely needed more space. She's 14 now

DDs 3, 4 & 5 were only 15 months apart, then twins and used to have all three together until a few months ago as space was really becoming an issue. They are 6,5,5 now and any 2 of them still have baths together, especially the twins. Very occasionally they still have all 3 together as a special treat (they love it) but that's quite rare.
