Bathtime Blues

Maddie is 9 months and 10 days old today, and yes, we are STILL giving her baths in the newborn/infant tub that goes in our kitchen sink!!! About 2 months ago, we bought a large inflatable "rubber duckie" tub that fits inside the shower tub (it even quacks when you press its beak!) and tried to give Maddie a bath in it, she FREAKED out!!!!! Literally! She wants NOTHING to do with it!!! We've kept it inflated, inside her bedroom with her toys, and she is still not even interested in going near it. It is getting harder and harder to give her baths in the infant tub, mainly because she is TOO big, loooooves to splash, and practically crawls out of the darn thing! I think this week, I will try just setting her in the sink for a bath, and see how that goes. Anyone else have any suggestions???
