E has always loved baths and never been bothered when we use the shower to wash her hair. The past week, we have had meltdowns before she even gets into the tub. She refuses to sit and any attempt to get water on her with the shower/jug/cup results in hysteria. Bath times have not altered at all. Only H or I have bathed her so we literally have no idea what has caused this. I've bathed her with M, without M, with me but no change...
Any suggestions, it's driving me mad and causing a lot of stress here before bed

Maybe just try to get her to help bath M without her having a bath, and say how great she is doing bathing him and that he is having lots of fun in the bath and then she may want to get in? Hope it soon passes

She bathed daddy tonight yoyo She didn't get in but she happily played in the water and I guess that's a step in the right direction!

It might just be a phase and part of her developing independence. I would just not push the issue unless she is covered in poo or something. Carry on letting her get involved in bathing others etc. U went through a phase of hating them and then came through the other side. She will still random refuse to shower/bath and I jsut let her unless she is covered in poo
