I gave him his book a few times but he wasn't interested. I think for Max at the age of 2 books are snuggling up to mummy or daddy with and bath time is, let's face it - wet messy fun time!
I do think that he doesn't associate books with bath and sees bath as energetic, manic fun time rather than anything as sedate as reading a book.
Matey has been doing some research on bath time bonding between parents and their infants and found the top 10 parent - child bonding experiences were:
1. Having a cuddle (29%)
2 Playing together (22%)
3 Reading a story (15%)
4. Bath time (9%)
5. Chatting (6%)
6. Meal times and feeding (5%)
7. Going for a walk (5%)
8. Bed time (3%)
9. Watching a film or cartoon (3%)
10. Listening to music (2%)
Which is your favourite bonding experience?
For me, I would say having a cuddle number 1 every time, we also like to dance around the front room to Imagination Movers.....
