lately audrey has had the most INTENSE fear of the tub. we put her little tub in the big tub or put her little tub in the sink but she without fail try to stand up and get out and cry hysterically. i kind of am to blame i think. one time i put cold water on her head when i thought it was warm and didn't double check.... YIKES!
anyway i read up on the bath phobia and one site suggested taking a bath WITH the baby to get them feeling more secure.
i have to say- this totally worked. she gets excited for bath time and smiles the most happy smile. she splashes and has fun! i hope this wont be a forever thing because it sure is time consuming. im happy that she is learning to be calm and understands that baths are safe and ok.
