My pedi recommended having DD lie on her back with her eyes closed, then putting the drops into the corner of her eyes while they were still closed and having her blink a few times while still lying back to get the medicine into her eyes. I've been able to get both girls (ages 2 and 5) to let me give them eye drops this way. It seems to freak them out less. GL!
How would I get an ointment in there any better?
I let DS hold an M & M in each hand that he couldn't eat until I was done. I usually don't bribe with food but I was desperate since he was running away and would do the whole head shake thing for the closing hid eyes trick. Bribing with chocolate was the only thing that worked.
