Hello ladies, I really hope I am in the right place. Here is my situation, I am the mother of a beautiful 15 month old baby. My husband joined the military and we moved out of state this past December, with the new insurance and switch of Dr.'s we are just getting her 12 month Appt. next week.
She is my first child so I really have no idea what to expect at a 12 month appt. As far as vaccinations go, she is up to date until 12 month appt. status.
I am not sure if I should post here or not since I am going to delay one vaccination in particular, but I figured you could give some info & words of encouragement..
What Vaccinations do they get at the one year appt?
How did your child handle them? I need some encouragement, I am shaking in my boots over here.

My younger son hasn't even cried with his last 2 rounds of shots, but he did feel a bit warm after he got DtaP. My older son screams like a banshee if you so much as clip his toenails, so you can imagine how he would be with shots.
It is a lot of vaccines at one visit, so if it concerns you, ask your pedi if you can break up the shots a bit, either do more at the 15 month appointment or schedule a visit between the two. We did DtaP at the 15 month appointment and we're doing MMR at 18 months so DS wouldn't have so many shots all at once. HTH!
