Re: Do you have a baby who wears glasses?

DS#1 has been in glasses since 21 months, so older than your LO. It took him a week or so, and then he wouldn't take them off (like PP mentioned, I think he was glad to be able to actually see something.) Distraction worked best for him, particularly the TV or videos. We started slow, the first day he only wore them for ten minutes or so, then gradually increased it for a couple of days, then he did fine and wouldn't take them off (for anything! He bathed and slept in glasses until he was 4. Now he takes them off at night at least.) My DH was an esotropia baby, glasses as an infant, patching, and finally surgery. I would want to avoid surgery, too, I hope your LO gets used to them soon. Good luck with your glasses adventure!

Happy mama to my 4 handsome boys
