Avery used to be completely fine during bath time, but recently has really learned to hate it. She screams the entire time and I have to move as quickly as I can to get her clean so that I can get her out. As soon as I put her in her towel, the crying stops and all is okay in her world again.
I really don’t want bath time to be as traumatic for her (and me) as she is making it seem, so I am doing my best to make it as comfortable as possible. I’ve tried several things to help her learn to love bath time and so far they are working. Every time we give her a bath, there is less and less crying. I hope that soon, she will learn to love the bath and it will become something that she looks forward to and doesn’t dread.
