Can you start with the bath empty, and gradually add a bit of water while he is in it until there is enough to wash him in? He maybe persuaded to get in an empty bath and you could have a jug and pour it from the sink rather than the taps in the bath. Plus sliding in an empty bath is great fun! but of course he would have to let you put a little water in it so he can slide in it :wink: Then maybe you would have to put a bit more in to see if it got even more slippery etc etc.

Next time you could say, do you want to slide in the bath, ok this time we will put a little water in before you get in, etc etc, until there is too much and then he can slide a bit at the end rather than to start with.
