Question: What to do if your 8 month old is terrified of the bath?
On our trip to Missouri Easton was just loving baths in Grandma's tub, just like he always did at home. He showed the whole family how well he can STAND in the tub and play with all the knobs and faucet.
Near the end of our trip he had a rashy bum and just cried when we put him in the bath- understandable. Unfortunately the next time I put him in the tub, the water was too hot. He cried again. And every bath since. He is no longer rashy and I use cool water, but I think he has developed a bath phobia. He tries to get away whenever I get him anywhere near the tub.
Its really sad because I think that may have been one of his top 5 life activities. So I am wondering if this will last. Do I need to help him get over this somehow?
