My daughter who has always LOVED playing in her bath with her big sister now despises it. She is just about to turn 15 months. She used to be all smiles, splashing, etc. Now she cries from the moment she gets in until I get her out. The girls are only 15 months apart, but our older daughter doesn't disturb the younger one at bath time... they usually just sat there and played side by side. I can't think of anything that's changed, no soap-in-the-eyes trauma or anything like that! Help! I've tried bathing them separately (not easy to keep track of one while the other is in the tub, though, and it made no difference. I've even tried getting in with her. She screamed just as hard. Help! Her favorite mealtime activity is to slick back her hair with whatever she's eating, so she needs her hair washed every day!Answer Question

Hmm.. this happened with none of my kids, cant remember which one, but they are 15 months apart too. As I remember it there was an incident that started the bath time crying fits, I think she got some water in the face, and then from that moment on she hated the baths. Good news is that it was temporary :) Eventually she forgot about it and had normal baths again.
