Help! My toddler refuses to take a bath or shower.
If I'm taking one, he will sometimes come in with me, but that's my only hope.
We used to do a shower every night, but since he wanted to shower with me in the mornings anyway, I started his showers then too.
So now he doesn't want to shower on his own at all! And he will only sometimes shower with me (I also frequently shower while DH lets DS "help" him outside, since that's the only time I can).
Any advice for getting a toddler to take a shower? I tried giving him cool stuff to do - those crayons that are just for the bath, a cup, etc. Tonight I even told him we were going to give his "baby" a shower (he has a few baby dolls), but he was on to my game!
I don't want to force him. But, sooner or later the kid has to shower, KWIM? He gets really dirty! Even a little sponge bath does not get all of the junk off.
Please share your advice!
