    I make funny noises every time it touches his face so it's like a game.
    If I forget, he screams

    Yep DS hates having anything near his face; a tissue, face wipe, face washer. The bath seems to be the only place he can be washed.
    He screams and squirms whenever we try to wipe his nose or face down, or his hands for that matter.
    I think DS's issues date back to being in special care as he had a nasal tube taped to his face for the first 3-4 weeks. I still reckon that's what started it. I'm hoping he gets over it, cos I'm over the tanties in public when I need to wipe his face, actually over the tanties in general!!

    Yep! DD is 21 months and she hates getting her face wiped with a passion! I've found lately if I'm a bit slower and I chat or be silly while doing it she doesn't mind nearly as much, but DF just wipes her whole face and she goes nuts! We've recently hit a great step forward with tissues though, she knows to blow her nose on them, she used to hate me wiping her nose when it'd run during teething, although she's digging out dirty tissues to blow on! Haha can't win them all!

    DD2 isn't keen either so I either warn her before hand with a "mummy needs to wipe your face" or let her do it herself. Also when I wipe her face I do it gently and just dab at it.

    Mine did! Try getting them to do it themselves and making the flannel warm.

    Yep, this sounds familiar - DS loves to bite on them and just hold them in his mouth when in the bath.

    Children are such strange little creatures...

    Often I just don't bother trying to fight DS to wipe his face properly - I sware he's turning into one of those children from mad max beyond thunderdome.
