That's a very unhappy baby right there....
For no apparent reason, and with no traumatic even to prompt it, she has developed a significant fear of the bath tub. Literally getting a bath has become an all out scream fest the entire time.
Actually, occasionally she will calm down at the very end of her bath, enough to play a little. She will then quickly exclaim "all done!" and demand to be taken out of the bath.
I am at a loss what to do about this. She cries and screams and hates getting a bath so much that I hate giving her one - of course I still do and hide my resentment so she only sees a mom who is enthusiastic about bath time! Most of the time my enthusiasm has little to no effect on her. Toys and encouraging her to play doesn't sway her. Singing and laughing only causes her to scream at me. And once I tried using the shower instead of a tub bath. That was a horrible horrible idea. Ugh.... I appear to be no match for this newfound fear of bath time and water in general.
Have you ever dealt with a sudden irrational fear in your child? An aversion to bath time or water? I need some tips on how to help get her through this and make bath time, and water in general, enjoyable again!
