Help - dd keeps pooing in the bath

I'm at my wits end, my dd 16.5 months, keeps on poohing in the bath. Like every second time I put her in, I'm worried that she is associating bathing with poohing now. I am trying to wait until after she has gone before bathing her but that is difficult with our hectic life. Any advice please

Could you put her in the bath as normal, then as soon as she starts to make to poo, hold her on the toilet? It's probably just a phase though.

my ds used to do this too - only advice is get a cheap plastic sieve so you can scoop it out easily! He did stop doing it (can't remember when) and potty trained no problem, so he had no long lasting assocation effects.

Oh dear, yes I think a sieve may be a good idea, thanks

Tortoiseshell- I'll try but the bubbles may have to stop as they are disguising most of the 'action'

Alannah, could you put bubbles in later? We always do that anyway, wash hair with no bubble bath, then add bubble bath and have a good splash to 'make the bubbles' then blow bubbles with a bubble blower. Could be a good reward for doing poo in toilet or nappy?

Good idea about the bubbles

Ds went through this stage. Really gross! Lasted for a couple of months, IIRC. She'll stop doing it eventually, I guess.

this is gross but my dd did a poo in the bath when i was in there too!!!!

All she could say was 'oh no' as this log came floating towards me!!!

I am embarrassed to say but 'Darling, can you help DD has pooped in the bath' was not what I yelled to DH!
