How can we make bath time less traumatic for our baby? He doesn't seem to like water.

Be patient: Usually what babies don't like is either feeling cold or feeling insecure. Keep the water warm (not too hot, of course) and put the baby in a baby bath so he can have warm water up to his tummy. Hold him very securely so he isn't feeling unstable. Talk with him or sing to him. At first, the baths may be very short- plan ahead to make it quick! Gradually, he will enjoy them more. ...Read more

I am not sure what is going on but every time I try to take a bath I lose control of my bowels can you please help me? I do not no what to do but it has me worriede

There: There are many causes of bowel incontinence, regardless of when it occurs (in your case during a bath). These causes include:
chronic constipation-if this is the cause then it would make sense that the water in the bath is acting as enema so to speak.
Chronic laxative use
recent bowel surgery or collectomy
emotional issues
surgery relating to prostate, rectum, or gynecological
for women injury to rectal muscles after childbirth
muscle or nerve damage from trauma, tumor, or even radiation
hemorrhoids or rectal prolapse

as you see, there are many possible causes for your problem. I suggest you schedule an appointment with your primary care provider for evaluation and treatment.
Good luck. ...Read more
