For the first 9+ months Darla HATED her bath. She would literally scream the entire time she was wet until she hit the towel. Recently though something wonderful has changed. We put her into the bath now and she laughs, splashes and crawls around like a little fish.The screaming time comes when you get her out of the water! It's such a pleasant arrangement that she spends a lot more time in the tub now and is usually the last one I get out because she's so happy.
