Toddler Tub Time

It’s been an exhausting twenty months, but I am proud to say that my toddler finally enjoys taking a bath! Hallelujah! If you only knew the stress that bathing my little Danger used to cause us, you would understand what a big deal this is.

She was never particularly fond of the bath. Whether it was the nudity or the wet, I have no idea. I only know that her fear of the bath grew significantly worse after our visit to the GA Aquarium in April.

At the aquarium, she enjoyed looking at all the fish – except when we tried to walk closer to the displays. My guess is that she was a little disoriented about the fish and the water being so close and not being able to see a barrier between herself and the display. When we tried to give her a bath that night, the screams started and did not let up until just recently.

Does your child enjoy taking a bath, or has your bathroom been turned into a torture chamber of sorts? What did you do to ease your child’s discomfort in the water?

  1. Fortunately, we never had that problem with Sophie…she always loved the bath. But what she REALLY loves is toys in the bathtub. Which I’m sure you have tried. Toys, bubbles, games. All good things to try to relieve the stress and make bathtime funtime!

    • I can’t get Danger out of our tub these days! She has little cups that she plays in the tub with, and yes, we do still take baths with her 🙂 You are sooo lucky that Sophie has always been so easy with baths! I swear it was like pulling teeth around here for too long!
