It took a while before Connor enjoyed his bath. I think it was a combination of two things-
1. His rookie mom was terrified of getting even one drop of water near his eye, or letting his ears get wet, or getting him too soapy, and thus creating a sudsy, slippery baby that could squirt right out of my hands at any given moment!
2. The water was too cold - also because his rookie mom was too afraid to make it even one iota warmer than the recommended temperature!!
After getting over the initial jitters, upping the bath water temp., and keeping a warm washcloth on his belly, Connor came to really enjoy his baths, and now he has one every night before bed! He was almost two months old before we got into a good bathtime routine!
