Ok so my son is 16 months old and It is a disaster trying to wash his hair. I use a cup and i try to get him to hold back his head, so that im not pouring water over his head, but he always fights me and I end up getting water in his face . then he looses his breath for a second and then starts screaming, because he is terrified. I have also tried laying him down on his back and putting his hair in the water, but that doesnt work either. Does anyone have any suggestions? I know that he is not gonna drown with a little bit of water in his face, but i dont want him to be terrified and i dont want to have to fight with him to wash his hair. any advice would be appreacited. thanks!
