    My 4 and 8 yr old boys still hate having their face wiped. But I found if you give them the washer or wipe and let them do it themselves I have half the hassles even if it doesn't get done perfectly lol

    My 22 month old hates it, unless I do one side of her face, take the washer away then do the other side. I can't do it all at once.

    DD is almost 3 and still does. To be fair, I think she is saving it for later

    The only one of my four children who reacts that way has sensory processing disorders.

    This might be silly but can I ask.. Is it a warm washer?

    L does this sometimes. I find having two helps, so she can 'help me' and encouraging her to do it and also getting a quick wipe in here and there while she 'does it herself'.

    Thank you! I tried giving her the face washer herself and showed her what to do on my face, then she wiped her own face.
    She did keep wiping my face over and over and thought it was hilarious but it's a start

    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!!
    It's hard in public hey, I get so flustered when my DD is having a tantie in the shops. I actually just left a shop yesterday without getting what I needed as I couldn't deal with her.
    Hope that gets easier!
