MY BABY GOT HIS FIRST SET OF SHOTS!!
And I’m ok.
I actually handled it waaaaaaaayyyyy better than I thought I would 🙃 because I just knew I was going to fall apart.
I stood next to him and held his hands so that he could see that I was there with him. I started talking to him before the nurse started. There were THREE needles 😔 and the third was a combination vaccine so it was a larger prick than the other two. He began screaming after the first prick and continued until she was done but she moved quickly.
Then he stopped.
I hugged him tight and let him know that everything was ok.
If I could’ve taken his vaccines for him I would have!
Some people say to give baby Tylenol BEFORE the shots. We didn’t. However, we started soon after so that he wouldn’t hurt so bad. He slept a bit more than usual for a day and a half, but so do we when we’re vaccinated!
I’m so glad it’s behind us…at least for another two months…
