In brief: Create a shelf
Put your thumb on one cheek and tug the lower eyelid down.
Place a small ribbon of the Erythromycin in the grouve between the lower lid & eyeball. Do the same for the other eye. You are done. Normal blinking by baby will spread the med.

In brief: Apply while sleeping
Apply the ointment while sleeping and when they wake up it will have absorbed mostly.
