  • My daughter loved the water since she was an infant and is 3 and will shower and bathe all day long every day if she could. My friends daughter was like your daughter and eventually got use it. Try making it fun, bring toys, sing while in the tub, get in the tub with her and show her there is nothing to be afraid of.

  • lol. mine was around 18 months before she stopped crying through baths. and the pool was a nightmare! lol. I actually got in the tub with my DD for until she was a little over a year and then I had to just try to comfort her long enough to get her clean! She eventually adjusted.

  • my youngest is 10 months. she and both my other girls loved and still love bathtime. the biggest problem i have with her is her standing up in the tub constantly! i guess just make her baths short & sweet if she's not a fan yet, with lots of toys & splash the water with her.

  • My boys LOVE the bath. My 1st son Loved splashing at 3 months. Now, the pool, however is still a challenge.

    TNM786- My son would always stand up in the tub. Everytime he did I ended bath time....he learned quickly.

  • lol @sunshine, that is pretty much what i've been doing lately. after the 2nd or 3rd time of sitting her down and telling her no, i get her right out of that tub!
