Bath time is a disaster
MOST HELPFUL POSTS

This happened to us, too -- around the same age, I think. Maybe a little younger. She'd stand there clutching the edge of the bath and SHRIEKING until she turned purple.
Needless to say, we gave up after two or three iterations of that scenario, and started doing sponge baths. We'd try again every so often, but no dice. And then one day, shortly after her first birthday, she discovered the wading pool at the park, and poof! No more problems with the bath.
We never did figure out what made her freak out. Whatever it was, it went away on its own, and now she's 8 and has been taking swimming lessons for 2 years, and she LOVES the water. Just one of those weird kid things, I guess.

our son started to scream at his bathtimes as well but we just continued to do it every day and kept making it fun, singing and splashing and playing and soon he stopped crying and started playing again....get him to put his toys into the bath and making a game out of getting ready for the bath. I hope he comes around soon bathtimes are one of our more enjoyable moments for us.
