I’ve heard people say they stick it to their shirt before putting it on the baby’s face so it’s less sticky and hurts less when they pull it off.

Poor baby, she has no idea what's going on.

She may be sensitive to the adhesive. Call your doctor's office and ask them if they have anything for delicate skin.

I'm pretty sure a different brand might solve your problem. I used the ones with cute designs that were pretty expensive. I can't ever remember it hurting my child when I removed them.

Try an adhesive barrier first- before putting on patch

I put it on my clothes first, which definitely helps, and to remove it I pull it off quickly and then put pressure on with my hand for a second or two, and distract him quickly. Even if it hurt him to take it off, he's happy and smiling again after that. I'm still experimenting with different brands, but if they come off too easily then he pulls them off himself, which is not good either!
