We've had the worst experiences at bathtime. Alexander would scream bloody murder as soon as his butt hit the water & wouldn't stop until he was wrapped in his towel...until tonight.
I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner: DF brought him to me while I was in the tub & I held him cradled to me while I bathed him. Not a whimper! He smiled a couple times! And, on top of the happy baby thing, I felt more secure bathing him with me, like I had a better grip on a soapy baby.
I feel like a million bucks right now because it seems like bathtime trauma may well be over!
Natalie loves the bath! We sit her in a reclining bath chair in the kitchen sink and pour water over her. I don't use soap every day since both Max and I have eczema, but she loves the water and it is her calmest awake time of day.
