Yesterday giving my son a bath, he completely freaked out and was petrified. I think it was because when he had a stomach bug not long ago, and he had messed eveywhere the only way I could clear it was to hose him down. Not over his face or anything, just on his body and his legs.
I think it was the speed at which the water comes out, but yesterday all I ran was the tap and he went completely beserk, then my husband tells me off, whilst I am trying to calm him down which made the situation even worse, because of course we had a massive argument. This did not help.
So now I am frightened of giving him a bath, because usually he loves it. I don’t have it too hot, not with the hot weather, just a warmish bath, with some bath oil, and then I wipe him over with a sponge and then let him play for 5 minutes or so.
Yesterday was not like him at all, how can I get him to like them again?
I feel like I am on a loose end and don’t know how to reunite his love for a bath again.
I gave him a bath because he peed himself and I didn’t want him to be covered in wee, so thought I was doing the right thing, which turned out to be completely wrong.
How is your little one with a bath? Have they ever freaked out?
I would love to hear your story.
Many thanks for reading,
