Re : SCREAMING during bath time!!!!!!!

my son was the same way, it was like torture, thankfully he outgrew it, by about a year old he was a splashy happy kid.......I think it had to do with so much stimulation of that skin all at once..clothes off, naked to air, then immersed in water....we were only bathing him 2x a week tops!
