Bath time

Sabra - posted on 01/05/2011 ( 2 moms have responded )




My daughter is 15 months old.

She used to love her bath time and time and still does however whenever you try to lay her down in the water to rinse she screams her head off and holds on to the sides of the tub. She never had this problem until a couple of weeks ago. Nothing has changed, she didn't have a traumatic experience I can't figure out where this behavior is coming from or what to do about it.

Like Karen said it could be water in the ears or it could just be that she doesn't like the feeling of being tipped back. Try putting a washcloth over her eyes and tipping her head back to rinse the shampoo instead of lying her down.

she may have gotten water in her ear and didn't like the feel of it. i leave my son sitting up and just tip his head back with my hand on his forehead and rinse with a cup because he doesn't like to lay back either.
