Day 1 of operation pirate-baby
Putting the eye-patch on was less traumatic than I expected, but still not fun. It just made Zoe very sad. She cried for a few minutes during which hugs and snuggles were liberally applied, and then she was mostly ok, but would just randomly break into tears during the first hour of eye-patch. The second hour and a half was much better, she seemed to be used to it and just went about her normal baby business. Hopefully it will be even easier in the future. I do think it’s a good sign that Zoe’s right eye (the weaker one) seems to focus and move just fine when the left eye is patched.
It does seem a little strange to me that the eye patches we were sent were labeled as being “for girls.” I assume that explains the hears and musical notes on the patch. I have no idea what the boys version has. But really, is there a need to make the eye patches specifically for different genders?
