Does your baby have nappy rash - sometimes the water can really sting them if they do. Our baby girl (almost 10 months) went through a stage like that. I think when they are more aware of their surroundings it might frighten them. We gave our baby a shower with one of us for a little bit and then went back to the bath...

Hope it gets better
