Did your baby love or loathe the bath?

My daughter HATED bathtime until she was able to sit unassisted at six months old. I dreaded bathtime so much. Luckily she loves it now!

  • I dread bathtime now.

    My 5 yr old likes it as does my 19mth old(although he wont sit still for squat LOL).

    But my 3 yr old abhores them and he will cry and fuss and act like he's being killed so I go as fast as I can with him. Doesnt matter if I shower or bathe him its the same, standing and screaming, "all done mommy. Get OUTTTTTTT" til he's done.

  • Emi LOVED the bath! She was born in a bathtub though. XD And I always took her in the big bath with me. She hated her baby bath. And I mean, who wouldn't? It's COLD!
