Kids start forming preferences very early in life.

If your child hates bath time, try changing the products you use.

The shampoo may not be gentle enough for the skin, or they may not like the scent of the soap.

Typically, kids like anything that colors the water or makes bubbles.

  • Bathe together
  • Keep bath time to a minimum

After a while, you can transition out of the tub while sitting on the edge.

In general, bathing with babies and toddlers is just plain easier than bending over a bathtub.
