My three year old son is suddenly terrified of the bathtub. He wasn't a month ago in fact it was a battle to get him out of the tub. Now just saying someting about the tub can make him start screaming and crying. I have tried everything I can think of and I just can not get the boy to take a bath. I'm starting to suspect something may have happened to him while in the tub... His behavior is only unusual when it comes to bath time though and I don't know who might have hurt him. I just don't know what else could have happened. I am so concered I am thinking I may make an apointment with a child phycologist... any thoughts any one else experiance this?

I do this , when I'm in a hurry... I tell my 3 year old I am going to give him a "mini shower" which is basically sitting him or letting him stand, I use a small jug and pour water on him to get him wet, suds him up and rinse him off. He loves it because it's like Daddy, who showers instead of bathing and I let him pour the water over his belly, his feet, his arms, etc. hope this helps
