Mom Hack: Getting Your Child to Wear a Mask

Are you having trouble getting your child to wear a mask? At 2, it’s tough for Jelly Bean most of the time.  BUT when I first put one on one of her stuffed animals, she’s often much more receptive…at least for a while.  

Another strategy is to put stickers on it.  Again, with a 4 year old, that might work even better, but at 2, it “buys me” a little bit of time. 

Please remember that it is recommended that children under 2 not wear masks at all, as I could interfere with their breathing.
