Do you have to fight every night to get your toddler to take his bath? Does it seem like he hates water or is just plain scared of the bath ritual? What are some tips that can help make this time easier on both, you and him?
First, try to make a game out of the bath ritual. Don’t take it so seriously. If you are relaxed, your child will be relaxed. If this time of the day stresses you, he will become stressed.
Next, make a game out of it. If there are two toddlers in the home, allow them to share this time together and make the time fun. You can do this easily by purchasing some great smelling bubble bath and place it into the water before the kids get into it. When purchasing the bubble bath, make sure it is kid friendly. This means that you want to make sure that it is a bubble bath product that will not sting or burn the eyes. It should be one that is made specifically for children.
