new here/hair washing issues

Hi! I am Shelley, mommy to 3 yr old Nolan that we are in the process of officially get a SID diagnosis. I am thankful that things appear to be mild. One of our biggest problems is hair washing. It is so traumatic for him. He loves being in the toy, playing with his toys, etc. Some nights though, the fear of getting his hair washed keeps him from enjoying bathtime at all.


Any advice? Thanks so much!
