Jonah got his vaccines last week had the nurse put gigantic band-aids on his little thighs. I swear they were water proof too. Anyway, his next round of shots I would like to bring my own band-aids. I know this may seem silly. It was not easy getting the ones he had off and he still has a red bumpy band-aid mark on both of his thighs. So, my question is...what band-aids are good and easy to get off these days?? My older kids have not used band-aids in so long so I just don't know. Or maybe a little guaze and that tape instead??? Does he even need a band-aid after shots? I guess I am over thinking this lol.
I'm not sure about the best kind of band aid, but as far as needing them, I say yes. Eve bled a bit, and I wouldn't want stains on her outfit. Whatever type our doctor office used barely stuck. They were falling off right after the shots while I was putting her pants back on. I tried to get them to stick best I could. They were kind of a foam type material? Anyway, they weren't very sticky.
I don't know which ones are the easiest to get off, but if you use some ointment over the top of the bandaid, and then work from the edges, it takes away the adhesive. They used the vitamin A & E ointment on Jamison when we were in the nicu. You just work it along the edges and slowly work from one corner to the other until the bandaid comes off.
Poor little guy! I have the same problem as your son, and the red spots do hurt after the band aids come off. When I was getting all my blood tests while I was pregnant I started bringing my own band aids, too. I have found that the sheer plastic band aids work best for me, the "fabric" ones I avoid as much as possible. I also avoid the tape, because that can also irritate my skin, depending on where they put it.
They used the strips My husband went in with the baby for his shots ( I couldnt do it) but if I were in there I would have stopped them so fast wiht those horrible band-aids. My older kids always had the circle kind as that's what should be used on babies.
