He was always fine and the last two weeks screams when I put him in it and claws at me til I take him out. I have no idea why or what to do....

    My son stopped liking baths around the same age. He's 2.5 now and takes showers after dinner every night.

    No just me....I was to using one of those bath seats and then stopped and just put him straight in the water but he was fine like that for a week or so and now this. I tried putting him back in his bath chair and he still crys. I tried barley any water...idk. He did move one time and slide around and he got scared and I guess after that is so scares of them.

    It just a phase, my ds went through the same thing at that age.

    My 19 month old didn't like the tub for a little bit. I added bubble bath and that made him happy.

    Does he get toys? Do you switch those out from time to time?

    Try a shower. Maybe he'll like "being rained on"?

    We do bubble bath and toys and yes we put different ones in every night.
