Have you tried getting in the bath with her so you can give her a cuddle at the same time? You can then gradually introduce a bit of space between you, toys, and eventually the sponge or bath seat. Dont forget the non slip mat and/ or an extra pair of hands until you get used to getting in and out. Also, although bathtime is helpful in a nightime routine, if it is not relaxing, have you tried doing it in the morning instead (lots of babies get too tired and grumpy by the evening) Hope that helps
