We have been bathing my 5 month old son in the big bath for about 3 months now because he was too big for the infant tub (he's really tall, err..long). All of a sudden about 3 weeks ago he became terrified of the bath. Whenever I take him in to the bathroom at night he clings to me and as soon as I set him in the water he screams. We tried getting one of those inflatable duckie baths thinking maybe it was the hardness of the bath that bothered him but he seems to actually scream louder in that. I have also tried bathing with him, putting a portable heater in the room to make it warmer, adding lots of toys, taking away lots of toys, changing the water temp (not too hot or too cold), talking to and reassuring him, putting him in the tub dry with water in a pan to splash, and bathing him at different times during the day nothing seems to work!! He doesn't scream when he goes in the dry tub, just when there's water. Any advice?Answer Question
