This is very common. Avoid any frightening sounds when bathing her such noisy taps or gurgling plug holes.Place your baby in a dry bath and sponge her down. The next time use only a little water, no more than 2cm deep.Gradually start increasing the amount of water in the bath. Make bathtimes fun and play games when she is in her bath.
