Our Daughter is 22months old and is so scared of Nurses & Doctors. Today, I went to a Doc app and it was for me. She was still freaking out the whole time, I guess she thinks she is going to get a shot. We took her to the Doc on Monday, because she has a cold. Soon as the Nurse touches my Daughter to get her Temp, Weight, Height she freaks out. She won't let the Nurse or Doc even touch her to check her out. Does anybody else have a problem like this?? We took her for her 18 month, shots 4months ago and it was terrible because we had to hold her down for the shots to be put in her legs. I explained it to her Today that she wasn't getting a shot and that everything was okay. She still cried the whole time...Answer Question

i don't blame her lol! it's just a phase. you could try some books or videos like "elmo goes to the doctor" maybe get a toy doctor's kit and play doctor with her and a teddy bear. take turns being doctor and patient. no matter what you do (or don't do) she'll likely grow out of it.
