If that is what you want for your child, just know that this is what has to happen. We don't vaccinate, and my daughter hasn't had any needles.So I don't have much advice other than that. Sorry.
You are welcome, and welcome to the group!
Quoting Bae_boo123:Thanks anyway.
Just expect that she will cry when the first poke happens. Almost all babies immediately stop crying the minute they are picked up and coddled after it's over. It's just something that needs done so try not to think about it too much before hand. Think instead of the consequences of getting the diseases she could acquire if it's not done! You'll be ok and so will she :)
We don't vaccinate.
Babies can feel you tense so try to be as calm as possible, if they tense up it can hurt more. Give them a quick cuddle and make it about them, not you. You don't want to pass along your fear of needles. Know that you chose to vaccinate because you want to do what is good for them, like making them eat healthy food. In the beginning it isn't bad, my DD stops crying once we get out the door of the examining room.
can there dad do it.. my friend is also and she ha dthe nurses do it while she left room and came back with a traet to comfort her baby
