My 10 month old has started scream crying because he can’t reach the shower drain during bath time - how can I get this to stop?

I'd give rag baths for a few weeks to separate him from the craziness of the situation. Then, when it's not bathtime, so it's not a stressful moment, I'd let him touch it and play with water going ...

My 10 month old has started scream crying because he can’t reach the shower drain during bath time - how can I get this to stop?

I strongly suggest you let him explore the drain. It's not as "dirty" as you think, and it won't hurt him. He is curious and has a need to explore. One which you are not allowing and since the ...
