Mommy's I need help. my little girl loved bath time. We even started giving her showers. I've always taken a bath with her. She was in her baby tub til she turned 20 months. Then she eanted showers. Now all of a sudden she cries when we tell her its bath time. We've tried bubbles toys. U think maybe she's afraid of dirt. I need help

Maybe take her to the store and have her pick something out for the tub? Finger paints, crayons, toys, whatever. They also have things that change the color of the water too. Also most 2-year-old fears pass as quickly as they arrive, especially if they're handled tactfully. You may be able to speed this one on its way with lots of water fun that has nothing to do with baths and bathrooms. If your daughter still loves her Mommy-and-me swim class or enjoys splashing around in a wading pool, she'll soon come back to bathing. If she can't face the wading pool, either, offer her a plastic dishpan and lots of cups to fill and empty.
