Our baby likes baths but is afraid of her baby pool
Tonia Thibodaux
Wait until next summer. Having a small baby in even a baby pool is fraught with so much danger that I would be happy she doesn't want to go in. And, yes, this kind of reaction is definitely normal. Babies are very sensitive to temperature changes, and it may be that the water is too cold to feel good to her, even in very hot weather.
