How do you wash your babys hair and avoid getting soap in their eyes and ears? I have seen those hair visor thingys, any one have experience with those? Does it work?

My elder daughter or husband hold a dry cloth over my baby daughter's eyes while I rinse. Took a few times to get used to it, but it works great!

I also use a soapy washcloth to wash his hair, then I rinse it off with by tipping his head back slightly and using this whale rinser: https://www.amazon.com/Skip-Hop-Tear-Free-Waterfall-Rinser/dp/B00FXR5S20/ref=sr12?dchild=1&keywords=skip+hop+whale+rinser&qid=1592866172&sr=8-2 

I like that it has an edge that can go against his forehead so that it creates a barrier and keeps the water from pouring into his face. This usually keeps the soap out of his eyes and ears.

I wait until the end of the bath to put shampoo in his hair, then take him out, wrap him in a towel and sit on the edge of the tub with him on my lap so I can just put his head under the faucet... hopefully that makes sense. It works great!

Ears I never really worried about, but eyes, we would use a cloth and our hand, and tilt their heads back

I use a washcloth and the minimal amount of soap.

I feel like your hand or a washcloth has the same effect as those visors. I think kids get used to it after a while and know to look up at the ceiling while I wash their hair.

I have boys, so I'm not dealing with a lot of long hair, but I soap up a washcloth and use that initially then work it through with my hands. This seems to work. I also use shampoo that doesn't irritate the eyes.

I use a gentle organic soap and we take our time and play so when it does get in his eyes he doesn't even notice really.

I never used one. I just put a washcloth over his eyes and this did the trick. I also just used a plastic cup to rinse him and leaned him backward. Never had an issue! Save your money.

I just teach them to look up and put their head back. Also, if you use a mild tear free shampoo for a while, it lets them get the hang of it, without being scared of getting soap in their eyes.

Every other day we did.  Noodle n Boo products.

Yes, I have used a visor, but it only worked a couple of times.  Baby didn't like it anymore.
