[ - ] Posted about this last week but now I'm at my wit's end. For more than two weeks now my 20 month old has refused to take a bath, after happily taking one almost every night her entire life. She screams and is visibly scared. We have tried EVERYTHING! New bath toys, music, a shower, bath crayons (this worked for a few days to get her in the empty tub so I could sponge bathe her, but doesn't anymore). I have gotten in with her (didn't work) and so has DH (worked for about a minute, and she was very tense the whole time). I have no idea what possibly could have brought this on. Right now I am sponge bathing her on a towel on the bed, which she actually seems to enjoy, for whatever reason. What do I do? Just wait it out? Thanks. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Yes. She probably developed a fear of the drain. I remember that for some reason. It went away naturally. I used to make a game with my dd when she had this fear, that as the water went down, it was going to the ocean with the fishes. I had her "talk" to the fish...and I would make up fish conversations...it always ended with "Thanks for the water, Julia!". She's laugh. Maybe make up a story. We also had bath foam, bath crayons etc. Kids like to control too at this age. Just let her decide for awhile. [ Reply | More ]

I used to bring dd a banana or a granola bar, but I have stopped bc as soon as we left the house all she wanted to do was snack. We would be at a park and she would spend half the time eating. No. She needs to play. So all my friends bring their kids so much food-goldfish, apples and peanut butter, raisins, cookies, sandwiches, all as snacks. So then dd sees theirs and whines the whole time, and I have to listen to my friends bitch about how their kids never eat their meals.

Snacking is out of control. Parents can't leave the house without a deli shelf in the stroller. Insane.
