Bathtime

Why does my baby hate the bath so much? This is a question I seem to keep asking myself.
To start with I thought it was just a case of getting him used to it, but he just seems to scream as much as he did in the start.
I have the temperature warm, not too hot, not too cold. So it can't be that he's cold or too hot. One time, only one time he's been in the bath and not screamed. So I thought after this bath that maybe he's finally starting to take to it, but no every single time after he's screamed the house down.
It can sometimes take a while to calm him after he's come out the bath, other times as soon as he's wrapped up in his towel after her calms down a bit.
Nearly every time after he comes out he's either sick all over himself or wee's everywhere, I think this is just a case of bad timing. 

He used to be like this when he was getting his nappy changed and eventually he stopped and is quite calm through nappy changes unless he was upset anyway.
So I'm hoping he will eventually warm up to the bath.

I never thought that just giving him a bath would be such an unpleasant experience.

Does anyone else's baby/child hate bathtime?
