What worked for me was that many times I asked my husband to bring her to me when I took a bath - I put her on my stomach and this relax her/him
try this - she'll be more relaxed for sure

Make bath time fun, add a toy, like a duck. Calm her down, and use a calming bath soap and lotion, that works for my daughter.

Something else I tried when my daughter was younger to get her to wash up was to get a baby doll bath toy and grabbed a wash cloth and said "Your baby is dirty, would you like to wash her while mommy washes you?" I showed her and said one at a time which body part to wash and she did and it became fun for her and each time it was bathtime she wanted to wash her doll. :)

My daughter used to be the same way. What I did was I tried making it fun and enjoyable so we can both enjoy bathtime together. I turned on the water and had her stick her hands in it to play with it for a minute then I found some bath toys that I see her play with and said "would you like to put these toys in the bath tub?" I then started playing a little bit with them showing her it was fun and she saw that I showed enjoyment in playing in the bathtub. She then wanted to get in and once she did she started playing and forgot all about the real reason for taking a bath!! This worked for me when my daughter was younger now she loves taking a bath. I hope this helps!♥
