  • My daughter did the same. Now when it's bathtime for her I go with her in the shower! Try showering with your toddler!

  • your the parent, :) it's in his best interest to be clean, there are some parent who don't care, sounds like you do.

  • Showers worked for us too. Our son was fine in the bath and then all of a sudden he hated it. Didn't want to get his hair washed or have water poured on his head, he'd freak out when we'd try to get him in the bath and he'd freak out the whole time he was in there.
    For no reason! Just one day he decided he hated the bath.

    So my husband brought him into the shower with him and he loved it. He started having 2 or three a day! lol
    In the morning with my DH before he went to work. One with me in the afternoon when I had one and then one before bed.

    After a while of just having showers he decided that he wanted a bath again so he could play with his boats. He even lays down in the bath sometimes now.

    It's probably just a phase. Kids are weird. :)

    Oh! We also started using a little watering can to rinse the soap and shampoo off and he thinks it's great.

  • I agree with the above posters.. that or buy the shower heads that are removeable, and try that too so he has the feeling of the shower. :)

    Good luck! (I hope my daughter never does this.. lol I have to fight her to get OUT of the tub)
