You can try all sorts of things (toys, bubbles, showers) but sometimes it's just a matter of time. I found with my first daughter she went through bath phases for the first couple years. Sometimes she loved them and then she'd have a few months where she hated them and said she was scared. Who knows why.

Have you tried taking a shower with him? My son didn't like baths either at first. My husband started giving him a shower with him. He will still take showers and now he loves the baths . You can't keep him away from the tub. If you don't watch, he'll put his hands in the toilott. Now I have to keep the bathroom door shut.He just turned a year old.
With my other son, he didn't like the bathtub. So he took a bath in the sink. It worked. Some kids are afraid of water. Have you gotton the water on his face and he would cry? Cause some kids don't like water on the makes them feel like they can't breath and is going to drown.
