Oh I know that worry well. Honestly it will be fine. I never had any infection or signs of anything with Miila. Just try and keep her calm as much as is possible anyhow. We used that soft cone instead of the hard icky one. It did help to slow Miila down for a minute anyhow. Try not to worry, I know not going to happen. I felt like the worst, meanest mama in the world when I dropped Miila off.
