How are your LOs doing with baths? Lucas used to love them, and now all of a sudden he is terrified of taking a bath! He will scream and cry and stand up the whole time clinging to the side of the tub. I'm not really sure why the sudden fear of them now? Ever since he has been able to sit up on his own well, around 6 mo, I have just put him in the big tub with about 2" of water w/ a few toys and he loved it. And he still likes the pool just fine, it just the bathtub for some reason. Suggestions?
I've tried him w/ and w/o his sister in there, to see if having her there makes him feel better, and it doesn't matter. I tried getting in the tub w/ him tonight and it also didn't make a difference. My DD had this that we just put in the tub and she really liked it, but grew out of it when she was about a year. So I could try one (I'd have to buy another b/c it got a hole in it while in storage) but I don't image he would use it long, if he would even sit still in it at all w/o trying to stand up constantly. And I know some of you shower w/ your LOs, but how does that work? I can't imagine bringing Lucas in the shower w/ me. Do you just sit them on the floor? Don't they get water in their eyes, etc?
I just don't know. I'm hoping it's just a phase and he will grow out of it.
