You know the baby ones you can get in the chemist? I just can't find one to fit my 3 year old's head and she screams and cries when I wash her hair.

Please help!

Thanks so much

I saw a little jug thing that has a soft rubber section to place over the childs head to stop watering going onto their face at Target yesterday.

Can I just say don't buy the jug... it doesn't work and somehow manages to pour water in their ears instead.  I've tried it on my DD and myself and we've both had the same outcome.  

I've found the best solution is to get a damp facewasher and fold it up and have them hold it tight on their eyes while they tip their head back.  Any dribbles get absorbed by the washer.

It took a few turns with me in the bath with DD having 'practises' on each of us before she got the hang of it but now she just holds it on herself while I rinse.

I would agree with the face washer.  A friends mum also used to use a watering can on the basis that she was "watering the flowers", rather than washing hair.  Whatever works.

We have also used the face washer with great success, or you can get a child size snorkelling mask and get them to hold that on their face (if you put it on with the strap the hair is harder to rinse in that spot).

My DD wears DS's Thomas the Tank Face Guard - bought it from Spotlight and it's great because it has a velcro sticky so will adjust to fit any size head.

DS wears his gogles that he uses for swimming lessons - works a treat!
