6 Month Appointment and a BIG Fear

The twins had their 6 month appointment today and I took them... by myself! This was VERY interesting, especially when it came time for their shots. But I must say, I love my pediatrician because she was so great about it. She even fed Kaylie for me! Anywho, on to the details!

Kaylie is now at (drumroll please) 19lbs 7oz, 25.5 inches!!! Cavan is my "peanut" at 18lbs 4oz, 25.25 inches! They are both growing wonderfully according to the pediatrician, so I'm happy! No starving babies here! And get this, she wants me to start adding a 3rd meal to their day! We tried it today and they certainly didn't protest.

Now on to a new fear that has entered our lives. Well, not all our lives, just Kaylie's. The tub! Now I know it's not the duck tub we just got, because she plays in it without water (Yes I stick them in there to play and they love it). But then the second I bring her into the bathroom and she sees the duck in the big tub, she freaks! Screams so loud and cries so hard (with real tears!) I'm almost tempted to just let her keep stinking just so she's not scared.

I've tried taking the duck out of the tub and put it next to it and she still screams. I can kind of distract her with bath toys for a quick minute to soap her up, but I have to move very quick. It's not the water temp because it's the same as I've always had it. Does she just not feel secure in the world of big tubs. So I'm at a loss on what to do. Any Suggestions?

This may be a stupid question, but do you run the water while she is in the bathroom with you? When we decided to make the transition from the kitchen sink to the bathroom, my girls screamed bloody murder! I couldn't figure out why. I would put my girls on the floor in the bathroom, get everything ready, run the water and then all hell would break lose. The water running freaked them out. Once I started running the water without them in the bathroom they were fine. Who knows if this is your issue, but I just thought I would comment. Good luck! Hopefully you figure it out!
