We stopped in to try on a few frames and it was my own fault for going when Mila was tired and probably hungry and had already spent over an hour at her eye appointment. We tried on some Miraflex and Specs 4 Us frames. Mila hated the Miraflex and they were so close to her eyes since her face is so flat. I don't blame her. I managed to snap one blurry picture of a pair of the Specs 4 Us before Mila lost it. We lasted about 10 minutes there LOL.
|Poor baby looks less than thirlled about wearing glasses :(|
I called Specs 4 Us (frames designed specifically for kiddos with Down Syndrome) and they are sending me out a bunch of pairs to try! This will be great because we can do it without rushing and without pressure to choose on the spot! We can also choose times when she is happy and might tolerate it better. We're also looking into seeing if we can try a couple pair from Solo Bambini.
So those of you mamas that have been there, done that with glasses for an 18 month old (with DS), any suggestions on frames or what worked best or on how to get her to keep them on??? Has anyone used Specs 4 Us with a baby this young? They told me infants actually wear these ones....but it'd be nice to hear from someone whose child (around Mila's age) who actually wore the Specs 4 Us successfully (or not!) Thanks!
