Just want to be clear, by "reaction" I meant that he cried; not that he had an actual reaction to the vaccines. We go through a military hospital for my son's vaccines, so our options are limited when it comes to single dose and preservative free vaccines. We follow the Dr. Sears schedule with a few omitions and substiutions.
I try to be fairly educated on vaccines and am thoughtful on what vaccines I choose for my son to have.
But that is not what the OP was asking about. I'm pretty sure she wanted to know about numbing the area for the actual pain of injection.
