My 22 month old son hates bath time ! When i start running the bath he runs and hides away from me, when i start undressing him he trys to keep his clothes on and then when i try and put him in the bath he tries to wrap his legs around me. He cries and tries to climb out once he's in the bath. I've brought loads of bath toys for him, i give him his dummy during bath time, my husband has tried having a bath with him but he's the same. He won't sit down in the bath, he stands and cries. I wash him and he's pushing the sponge away and when i wash his hair, he screams the place down. I have to pour water onto his head as he wont sit down and put his head back and when i do, he slaps his face to get the water off! I use johnsons no more tears shampoo. And by the end of bathtime, which is a whole of 2 minutes probably, i am drenched because he's splashed the water everywhere trying to get it off him. I don't know what to do anymore. I want him to start enjoying bath time and not cry when i say it's bathtime. Any tips, suggestions etc would be very much appreciated !! The bath toys i've brought him as well, he isn't interested in them when he's in the bath but when he's not in the bath, he'll play with them !
