    What to do if toddler hates bathtime?

    Written on 25 May 2021

    Activities on how to bathe a baby:

    The tiling in the bathroom is an excellent place for your youngster to draw on the walls. Simply provide them with the necessary tools and watch as her imagination soars. Some of the available options are soap crayons, bathtub finger paints and markers, reusable stickers, and foam forms that stay when wet.

    Create a fantastic world.

    You may transform your bathtub into a pirate ship sailing the high seas or a fishing craft combing the ocean floor for the next great catch. But, of course, Bathtime can be made more interesting by telling stories, so get out your favorite water-themed tales and encourage your child to imagine along with you.

    Play some music in the background.

    Play some jazzy music on your phone to add to the jazzy atmosphere of bath night.

    Please make use of your tub. The baby bathroom is enough, but yours is spectacular! Permission to use your bathtub for your toddler's shampoo is a wonderful gift.

    You should substitute real toys.

    Bath toys begin to lose their appeal after a time, so look around at all of the other plastic toys in your child's room for inspiration. Army men, plastic animals, and dolls are all safe to use in water, and most of them float.

    Include a tasty treat.

    Even while drippy ice pops are difficult to handle at the kitchen table, they're perfect in the shower. So keep dessert for this easy-to-clean area, and flush the sweet, sticky mess down the toilet after eating it.

    Make a racing course out of cardboard.

    Bring your child's vehicles into the bathroom and use the whole tub as a play area for them. For example, automobiles such as Mini pickups and convertibles may vroom and zip down the tub's edge.

    Come and join in the fun.

    You undoubtedly used to bathe in the same tub with your child, but she's long since forgotten. Although your child will most surely be delighted by the novelty of squeezing in now, Bonus: She can take care of your back and feet as you sit back and enjoy yourself.

    Try your hand at making some DIY bath toys.

    Consider making a splash with the introduction of bath toys that your child is guaranteed to enjoy. These easy-to-make baby toys for the tub can keep your child entertained while bathing, and they are also really creative (and low on out-of-pocket expense).

    Water balloons that are safe for babies.

    What makes great baby bath toys? Items that most infants can easily grasp and manage. These DIY water balloons will be a hit, thus their low cost. Allow your honey to help you fill Ziploc bags with water to three-quarters full, then seal and return them to your kids. You should not use real balloons as they may break and pose choking concerns to small children. Holding, shaking, pressing, or flinging them back into the water is all part of the enjoyment. Put a little plastic colander at the other end of the tub and teach your youngster how to shoot a basketball.

    A spray gun, to be precise.

    Real water guns are too heavy for little hands. This easy-to-make baby toy uses a plastic turkey baster to generate the same effect. Allow her to watch while you compress the bulb, wet the bulb's tip, and fill the tube with water. Shoot softly at her plump thighs and show her how to aim at different tub toys. She could also use the baster to blow bubbles underwater, which would be a fun trick and help her build hand strength as she squeezed it. No turkey baster? A nose-bulb syringe works just as well and is easier to grip. Make sure you have a spare suction tube handy for when your kid is sick. You don't want to put a moldy baby bath toy up her nose.
