My son is screeming every time we want to wash his hair. It started after he's baptisted. Showering is OK, but washing hair - terrible ! He is so afraid od that !

When my daughter was less a year old she hated baths, but i figured it out and if you play with them and splash them with the water they will get used to it. Now I can't get her out of the tub. It just takes time and patients, make it you and her time. Hopefully it helps.

Showering is a good idea. I also started this with my son around 15 months. He just became too wild in the tub and I couldn't stand to clean up the mess anymore!!! He loves showers, because he can slip and slide on the floor between my legs and act like Mommy and Daddy. He even washes himself with the washcloth!

How do you think she'd be showering with you? I started with my son when he was about that age ... I got good at showering with one hand, but they do make seats for them to safely sit in the tub.
