Bathtime issues,,

My daughter is 15 months old.. Were having trouble when it comes to bathtime.. for some reason when it comes to bath time she screams.. i mean shes okay when we put her in the tub but its when we start to wash and rinse her (expecially her hair) she goes to screaming , squalling, and squirming.. i dont understand why she's doing this.. its like she's treeified of water.. When she was younger she use to LOVE bath time.. she would have a ball! but why is she doing this now? What can i do to help this problem?

  • More than likely she will grow out of it. We bought duckies, bath hats...I had to have his older brother sit in the tub with him so he could see that it was okay. THAT is something I can't get my 21 mo old or my 4 year old to do. -sigh-

  • She should grow out of it, try & make it fun involve her more

  • Give her a wash cloth and let her help you wash her. She may calm down if you let her do a little by herself!
