My son has always loved bath time since his very first bath in his little baby bath tub. As he got bigger, he moved to the "Big Boy Tub" for bath time and enjoyed his baths even more. About a week and a half ago, I started rinsing his hair under the tub's faucet, which he seemed to enjoy; the falling, flowing water was always his favorite part.
Then randomly, out of the blue, he became absolutely terrified of his baths. He starts crying even before he's put in the tub. I don't know if it has anything to do with the new way of rinsing his hair because he's also started to not eat much for dinner, and then waking up several times in the middle of the night.
I'm about to leave in a week for Army Basic training and I'm really worried about him and his new behavior. I know I can trust my mom to watch him while I'm gone, but I'm scared because I don't know what brought this change.
Any help as to what could've caused it or could maybe fix it?
