My 9 month old daughter just recently got put on oxygen while she sleeps because of her sleep apnea is bad. But she keeps taking it off how do I keep it on her I use the tender grips that came with it but she still gets it off. I have also tried tape and putting tubing behind her but nothing is working she is on 1/2 a liter

She might just have to get used to the mask. It might take awhile. All you can probably do is keep checking on her and putting it back on her :(

I have had it tight and it leaves marks on her cheeks and she still gets it off dr said they don't know what else to do we are trying a mask now and she don't like it either.

You might have to call her doctor and ask them if there is anything else that you can do to get her to leave it on. Is there anyway to tie a string around the back to make it alittle tighter so she can't pull it off
