She loves her bath but hates after, is there something I am doing wrong?

My daughter is 3 months old. She loves bath time but every single time I go to dry her off and dress her after she screams and screams and screams. Big sad tears out of her eyes and everything. I tried keeping her wrapped in the towel to dry, letting her air dry, getting her dressed asap after getting her out and still she acts like I am murdering her.

Is it something I am missing or doing wrong? I feel so bad that she is this upset after tubby time. I just want to make it easier on her because it breaks my heart to hear her that upset.


Thanks in advance!

It's a phase. My son did this. He outgrew it.

Also, is she tired? My son (6 months) will still cry if he's really tired. :)

Dd did that. She wanted back in the water so bad. Finally after she figured out she wasn't going in she stopped.

She may just love bath time! DD always did that and she still does at 10mo. She wants to stay in the water and splash and play!

DS does that after bathtimes, too. He's very active, though, so I think he just doesn't like being held down for the lotion and the dressing. I can't let go of him for a second or he's gone before I can catch him lol...also, it's close to bedtime and he's tired and cranky.

My son does the same thing!! It was a lot worst when he was about that age, now he's only 5 1/2 months but still it's a little better now than it was a couple months ago. Does she scream harder when you Loition her up or something else? Cause my son cries more when i put lotion on him when he's laying on his back. So i roll his naked butt on his stomach and lotion him up that way, roll him back put his diaper on and just have his tummy and face to do real quick.

I don't use lotion on her, my doctor told me her skin was fine and it wasn't needed so I didn't bother.

I guess it is either a phase or she just hates leaving the water. Thanks so much ladies, I hate having her cry the big cry but I feel less like I am doing something wrong now. <3
