Max hasn't enjoyed baths very much. I felt so bad hearing him scream that I thought if I could hold him in the water next to me he would feel more secure. It was so fun because he loved it. He cooed and relaxed. It was so funny to see his little body float. The next time we borrowed this little tub from some friends and he liked it too. Maybe we have a little swimmer on our hands because having more of his body submerged seemed to be the trick. His legs are so long they have to hang over the sides. It's like a little lounge chair/hot tub.
