That is secretly amung kids, that gettingyour face washed is like getting your teeth pulled.



I personally have only met 1 child in my 29 yrs of life (well at least adult life) lol that a child didnt mind getting their face washed, wiped etc....lol



This Chloe dear here is a fighter, as soon as she see;s you with a face cloth (or any cloth) she covers her face with her hands and screams at you. lol
Dont get me wrong it was cute at first that she reconized what I was about to do, but now its just a battle to wash her sweet little face.



Its like some written rule that no child shall enjoy face washing, who agrees, from babies to older kids they just dont like it. lol

My DS used to hate it when he was smaller. But I made it out to be a game. He's 4 now and doesn't mind it at all. Just like another mama on here said, my son hates being dirty. He's 4 and freaks out when his hands are dirty. :shock:

I never used those things, they dont recommend the use of them here. lol
But I know what you mean, lo is on puffers and needs a n adapter mask that covers her mouth and nose, I feel horrible when I need my 10 yr old to hold her arms down so I CAN HOLD THE MASK FIRMLY ON HER LITTE FACE AND PRESS THE PUFFER. srry caps .lol

Mine doesn't have a conniption but, he avoids it.



He'll flip out over his hands being wiped over his face, though.

Felicity freaks out when I try to wash her face but it's not nearly as bad as trying to wipe away burgers. You would think I was beating her she screams so bad.

Mine flips out over saline spray. He acts like I'm shooting acid up there. lmao.



I only do it when he has a GIANT booger, and it's making him breathe funny.
