all of a sudden he hates the bath and cries. Help!
 
Ethan is 8 months old. He loves the bath, until I have to rinse his hair. In his old blow up ducky tub, it was easy. I'd just lean him back and rinse, no big deal. Now thathe's in the regular tub, its harder. As soon as water is poured over his head, even if nothing gets in his face, he bursts into tears. He hates it. Sometimes even just pouring water over his back and chest makes him cry. I feel so bad. If I lean him back, he's nervous. I've never dropped him inthe tub or anything like that. Any suggestions on what I can do? I know that One Step Ahead makes a pitcher that forms to their forehead so nothng gets on their face. I might spring for that. I wish I could make it more fun for him. He plays and enjoys himself butnow every bath ends up i n tears :(

My DS did the same thing. I bought a foam baby visor for him (really cheap) and just poured cups of water over his head. I had doubts about how well the thing would work since its only foam, but nothing gets past it. I tried to move from the cup to leaning him under the faucet, but he's not too comfortable with it yet. It does seem like he's getting better though. Good luck!

Hm maybe I'll look for a foam visor. I think he'd just pull it off. I might spring for the pricy pitcher thing but it seems like it would work.

Maybe the tub is just too big for him, will he fit in the sink? The visor is wonderful, get one of those. You can also shower or bathe with him in your arms.
