Has anyone experienced this? All of a sudden, he is very afraid in his little tub. Nothing has changed. He is just literally terrified. And this from a child who formerly loved his tub. I don't know what happened. Is this normal?

Yep, BTDT.
At 13 months my first ds absolutely refused to go anywhere near the bathtub that he had previously adored. I have no idea what caused it - it was like a lightswitch flipped on day and he would positively scream if he heard the water running. It lasted a couple of months and then it was like nothing had ever happened and he happily took baths again.
: We did a lot of sponge baths during that two months and he was fine. The only problem was the hair -- which he had ton of. I did have to resort to quick hair washes under the sink every so often, lots of screaming involved but it was quick.

I did pretty much what Beth did when ds went through this. I also had him actually get in the tub at least once a week and this is when I washed his hair. He wasn't screaming but wasn't happy either. But I figured if I avoided the bath altogether than he would never get back in. This lasted maybe two months and Billy is a little water boy once again.
