Here are some things you can do to help put your child at ease and comfort them when they get their vaccines:
  • Stay calm. If your child feels that you are relaxed, they are more lilely to feel safe.
  • Bring your child's lovey, or a favorite toy or book.
  • Hold your child in your lap for the vaccination. There is no rule that says they must be on the doctors table/bed.
  • Give non-aspirin pain relief shortly before the shot.
  • Speak or sing softly and soothingly close to your child's ear during the shots.
  • If you are nursing, breastfeed during or immediately after the shots are administered.
  • Encourage your child to take deep breaths and "blow out" the pain.
  • Tell a story, or ask your child to tell you one.
  • Let them cry! Don't try to force them to "be brave".
  • Reward them afterwards.

What did/will you do to make getting shots as easy as possible for your child?

Something sweet before, during or after the shot relises endorfins which can naturally counteract the pain. Thats why lollipops were introdused

Little OT but I LOVE those pics you have
