  • I just went threw this with mine! lol Take a blanket and do "snug as a bug in a rug". This will hold her arms down. Then lay her on the floor with your knees straddling her. It's ok if she closes her eyes, just stick the drops into the corners when she opens them they will go in. And even if she thrashes around you can pretend to get at one eye so she'll hide that one and then you just do the other and vise versa.

    Sorry I hope I'm making sense! lol

  • yes it does and when i do it again i will try that way because i just did it to her and it took me, my dh and my bil to put eye drops in a 3 year olds eye lol. I feel so bad that i have to do that though, but i don't want it to get worse either.
