My 12 month old is terrified of baths!! I don't know how I can make the experience better for him. He starts screaming and crying everytime I take him in the bathroom. I don't know what happened to make him so terrified because he used to love them. I don't know what to do about it anymore.

When my son began doing that about 12 months I just bathed him in the kitchen sink for a while. He was okay. Eventually we worked up to the tub again. We did have DH get in a bubble tub and call him in there. No pressure to get in..just talking to him. Sort of showing him it's okay with no expectations that he had to get in the tub.
