have him close his eyes when you put the drops on, and then once they are in place, have him blink a few times. It worked well when my 2 year old had the same thing.
capture his attention by holding his favorite toy in the eye drop position this should do the trick!
I agree with PP. Tell him what you're going to do, and have a towel ready to catch the drips. Have him close his eyes and drop the liquid into the corner of his eye. Then when he blinks, it'll go right in. But keep a towel handy, because from what I remember, it stings, and babies like towels. lol
It's like WWIII to get a splinter out of my LO's hand, foot, whatever. The way we do things like that is that one of us holds LO down and the other one just does what needs to be done.
Call the pedi back and get an ointment. It's a lot easier to do whent they're that little. Plus the ointment is soothing and doesn't sting like the drops do.
Quoting Marimaru:have him close his eyes when you put the drops on, and then once they are in place, have him blink a few times. It worked well when my 2 year old had the same thing.
Put the drops in the inside corner of his eye, the side by his nose. Even if his eye is closed, when he blinks the eyedrops will run into his eye.
