A few days ago Lily just instantly started disliking her bath. I can't figure out what happened. It seems like she went from loving bath time to being terrified over night. She screams when we put her in the tub, hysterical. Not just the 'I don't want to do this' kind of cry, she seems really frightened. We keep trying each night but end up having to quickly wisk her out, calm her down and give her a quick washcloth only bath.

Oddly enough, she is fine with the baby splash pool. And she is generally fearless when it comes to other things.

Any ideas?

That happens sometimes. I remember it happened with our William, at about the same age as your trio. The only thing that seemed to help was for me to get in the bath with him a few times (me + 3 babies. It's a good thing we have a big tub!). The other thing that helped was to bathe him in the sink again, which was a much smaller space where he didn't feel overwhelmed.
