Sooo close

Nope still not going inA follow-up to an older post bath time (un)fun. This was as close as I could get her to getting into the water. The rubber ducky almost got her, almost. She still will have nothing to do with a bath.

I think people think that I’m kidding. I think my sister realizes what a pickle I’m in. She helped me when I was there for Christmas. She howled and freaked out of course.

I’ve been trying everything, the bathroom sink. Nope, and I even just kept her shirt and diaper on. Thinking that I could trick her… Oh funny mommy, you are fooling no one. As soon as her feet and calf’s hit the water, her face contorted into the squeal of fear.

Thought at the suggestion of my sister, that maybe she doesn’t like to have her head wet. Lean her over the sink and wet her head and get her use to the water. That not such a big deal.

So once again I’m back to sponge baths for now… Le Sigh, I really hope that this is just a phase.

But seriously who doesn’t like baths… oh wait yes my daughter 😦

    • sigh yes, that was a no go as well.. But I’m going to try it again. I’m going to keep trying everything over and over. and over

      • how about a public pool? where there is more things going on to distract her? and you can kinda start feet, legs, i dunno… that is a tough one I have natural water babies. good luck ❤

      • It’s funny, because I was always the fish in my family. You still can’t keep me away from water

  1. Alarik used to HATE his bath time too, but then I started to singing and talking to him the whole time (as a distraction) and slowly he has come around and now he cries when I take him out of the tub. Also, a big change came when I gave him a few baths in the sauna (low heat)…but I’ve gone back to kitchen table as it is just plain easier, but he just likes to be warm and he LOVES to be naked.
    Hope it will get better for you and her over time and it will become a fun, sweet time for you both.

      • Just a simple little tub from Ikea and this lovely little mesh thingy that Mom brought from Canada, he can recline on it in the tub and keeps him head above water…I will send you a pic later, it’s bath night 🙂
