In addition to grinding his teeth, the little dude suddenly cannot stand a bath. He does The Dreaded Back Arch (you know, like when they don't want to get in the car seat.) Poor little guy screams in agony the whole time. Water is just right.
It started when he was sick a couple of weeks ago (he's now sick again). All I can think of is that one time the water was warmer than usual and it may have freaked him out. That has happened before, but maybe his already sick self just couldn't take it, and is now traumatized? I have no idea.
How to get him to have fun again? His older sister gets in and makes a big deal of frolicking with toys and all. No help.
Any ideas? Hopefully time will fix it if nothing else. But I'd love to hurry that up. I feel like I'm torturing him! But the dude is into everything and absolutely needs to be bathed! (We do wipe-downs often. But he needs a real bath at least a couple of nights a week. His nickname is slime boy...)
