Painless way to take off band aid?

Is there anything to put on the sticky part of band aids to make them less painful to take off on sensitive places like the tummy?

  • A little baby oil might do the trick, but really one sweep quick motion will do it to.

  • A lollipop. Give the child a tootsie pop and then go ahead and pull it quickly. Pulling is slowly just delays the pain. You are pulling hair. It is going to be a little painful. The lollipop helps.
