Unless there is an issue with a topical allergy, soap isn't an issue for people with celiac. That said, because there is the possibility it could get in a small child's mouth with all the messing around in a tub, it can't hurt to be safe. J&J baby soap in the yellow bottle is gluten free. I used to use it. Eucerin Calming Body wash is also.

 

It is possible that your baby simply decided that she doesn't like baths or water. My daughter hated water and baths, screamed bloody murder and acted like she was being killed every time she was bathed from the time she was around one or so until she was almost 4. Drove me up a freakin' wall, but I was sure it was a water issue because she was the same way with pools.

 

If she only screams while she's being washed, she may also just have super sensitive skin and may not like the washcloths or the soap your using on her skin and it may be enough to make her crazy with how it feels on her. Or maybe it's a control issue and she just doesn't like you doing that to her. She's a good age for that sort of thing.

My daughter did love baths, but she hated her car seat.  We could never travel farther than what we could tolerate hearing which was about 20 minutes.  I used to visit my mom and on the way home, I'd sing out loud to attempt to cover up her screaming and calm her.  Didn't work though.  She was a tiny baby and we weren't able to turn her car seat around until she was over 22 pounds (I think) and that didn't happen until she was two years old!  Why not sooner?  My hubby was an airbag/seatbelt engineer!  When we turned her around, she stopped screaming.  It was a miracle.  I guess she hated driving backwards!

 

Who knew?  

 

So, I agree, it might not be a gluten issue.

 

I take that back.  She loved water until she saw, at about 18 months or so, A Winnie the Pooh movie (not the original) that showed Tigger pulling the plug and rabbit going down the drain (of course he popped up in his garden in the next scene).  Then my toddler was afraid of the bath drain but I solved that by covering it with a long bath mat.  The worst was taking swim lessons.  She would not go into the deep end where the "drain" was.  Only now (age 12) is she playing water polo.  Kids are extremely impressionable.  If only had a known (but really Disney?), but I was desperate and movie time was a great time for me to get cleaned up or pay bills.

At that age, she really doesn't need much soap if at all. A wash cloth would probably get most everything off... That's what we used for wipes too was wet baby wash clothes.

 

How about the water temperature. Maybe the temp bothers her.

 

Good luck. I hope you figure it out.

I don't know if she sits on the bottom of the tub or a mat. My kids loved baths but didn't like the slippery bottom. They sat on a rubbery, non- slip mat for a long time. Or maybe she would like to take a shower with you? One of mine loved that. I used a cup to rinse his hair and let him play with the cup and water. He just sat on the floor away from a direct spray.
