My daughter is 14 months old and absolutely hates it when you try to rinse her hair. She's been this way since about 7-8 months. She doesn't mind you actually washing her hair with shampoo, but the minute you try to lean her head back or just start rinsing the back of her head, she freaks out and stands up and tries to fight you. We know it's because she doesn't want the water in her face, but she won't let us lean her head back so that it doesn't get in her face. We've tried laying her down in the tub, but that hasn't worked either. She's not as bad when she's in the shower with me and I rinse her hair in the shower, but she still doesn't like it. Does anyone else have this problem? Is it just a stage she's going through? I've seen those rinse cups with a soft place for the baby's head, but I don't know if they actually work and I don't want to waste my money. Any suggestions or prior experience will be great. Thanks.
