My 20month old DD goes crazy whenever I wipe her face clean. This morning for example as soon as the flannel touched her face she throws herself on the floor, cries and wiggles and kicks to get away from me. Surely a nice clean face would be more comfortable then a face smeared in crusty weetbix?
It drives me nuts!

yep wiping my 18mth olds face is apparently a terrible thing from her point of view, if she see's my coming with the washer or wipe she tries to run

None of my kids have done it, but I'd say a lot of kids do. It's just like everything I guess.

My 15mo does, even during a bath! Puts in the same performance when I change his nappy too.

yep my 15mth old did it. I give her the face washer and she does it herself.

My 22 month old screams thrashes and throws herself on the ground if I attempt to wipe her face. This morning we were at a water park and I went to wipe her nose so she threw herself face first on the cement grazed her forehead and made her lip bleed! Same reaction we get for teeth brushing, nail cutting, medicine giving.

Can you try giving her the facewasher? DS loves wiping his face and hands, he's a little OCD about it actually! But try giving her the facewasher, role play with dolls or get her to wash your face. Watch some in the night garden and big up how macca pacca washes faces, then rave on about macca pacca each time you need to wash her face.

DS is the opposite. I have to get 2 face washers because he has to suck on one. He opens his mouth and licks the face washer every single time and cries when I take it away.
