My LO always loved bath time! She loves going in the pool, ocean, and playing with her water table. We went on vacation in August and gave her baths in the tub where we stayed, which she hated. We thought maybe it was just because it was a different place. However, it has continued at home and only gotten worse! She screams every time I put her in bath. She also stands up, so I'm trying to hold her and wash her. She has slipped once because of that - didn't get hurt but scared her which I'm sure just made it worse. Tonight she screamed even when I put her in tub with no water (to see if it was water). She screamed for 15 minutes even when I went in with her just to sit in tub.
I usually make her stay in for 5 minutes so I'm not reinforcing screaming = get out, but it also breaks my heart and I don't let it past that. There are plenty of fun bath toys and I've even gotten in the tub with her - nothing is working. I also bought something so water and soap don't get in her face when rinsing her hair. Please help! Anyone gone through this? Any tips? I hope it's just a phase
