    Maybe he's getting cold & upset. Grace hates top & tailing but loves the bath, we have a heater in the bathroom though so its nice and toasty

    I'm still bringing Jacob's bath into our bedroom where I bath him as it's always so cold in the bathroom even with the heating on but it's nice and warm in our room so he enjoys it all the time now. I'll move to the bathroom when the weather gets warmer.

    Def easier to get in the bath with them. Kynon started loving his when I made them really deep and warmer, he used to scream too and def think it was because he was cold

    our O didn;t like baths for ages, after about 6/7 weeks he got better - we always put a warm wet flannel over his tum and that him feel a bit more secure and less vulnerable and naked x

    we have the same problem with our little man- we have moved the bath into his room and try to keep his favourite toy nearby. We chat to him and smile a lot to reassure him. He still gets a bit upset afterwards when we are getting him dry but seems better than when he was in the bathroom- think it was just too cold for him in there, and alien- afterall he was never in there except when having a bath, whereas he is in his room everytime we change his nappy!

    Aww bless him! Alice loves being naked, hope that phase will pass when she's older! Lol but she's not keen on bath time, I think she feels a little cold when she first goes in so we put our hands in the water and rub them on her tummy before we put her in. It seems to work most of the time x

    Angel hated it at first she used to scream from the moment I undressed to the moment I put her in her pjs lol. But I started doing it every single night and she loves it now. I make sure the bathroom is nice and warm for her and I undress her and let her have some 'bare bum time' while the bath runs so she can hear it. Everywhere I've read say to have the water at about 37C but it seemed to cold for her so I have it about 37-39C and she loves it. Also I just have like a bouncy chair which goes in our normal tub and I have a little jub which I use to pour water over her so she stays warm. When I get her out I dry and change her in our bedroom where it always warm :) I always sing and talk and laugh with her during the whole process so she associates it with being fun. With top+tailing I make its warm again and laugh and play etc and again she loves that too :) xx
