Urgh, Pink Eye

My poor son has pink eye in both eyes, along with a hefty sinus infection. So far, the eye drops for the pink eye have been quite traumatic for him. Anyone have any tips?

Oh, I'm sorry you are dealing with this and your poor boy! I once was in charge of giving them to our young niece and the only thing that worked was to have her close her eyes (all scrunched up ) then I placed the drop(s) in the inside corner of her eye, had her then open the eye and blink a few times.
Still icky, but it did the trick!
I hope it helps!

Awww, poor Jake!! No wonder his nose has been running! :( My mom still hates to have eye drops put into her eyes, and she's 72 years old. Some people just can't tolerate that I guess. Lisa's idea sounds really good. Good luck!!!!!

We do drops like Lisa does and it works pretty good! Hope Jake gets well soon and that nobody else gets it. ;)
