My daughter (2 1/2) has become very sensitive to putting on clothes or lotion. Once she gets used to it being on, she's fine. But it's such a battle to change her at all!

Hi KM. welcome to the parenting brain. My daughter Tess (20months) loves putting on lotions but mainly because she's copying her mum! One thought - Is there a way you can turn it into a game. If you both have a bottle (but yours is perhaps moisturiser?)

We did exactly that! It was amazing how quickly it worked.

That is actually a technique I used when I was teaching young kids. Don't force anything on them if they're resisting, but do the activity yourself or with someone else (another kid in the class in my case) and watch them come running over. FOMO is real!

Thanks all!! I will definitely try making it into a mutual game :)

Good luck! 😀 Let us know if it works or not, or indeed if you hit upon another solution yourself!
