My little boy, who is now six months old, is today getting his immunisation shots. Firstly, all those who think these are to be avoided are dangerously stupid (tip of the head to Sinnott MEP, who’s IQ is in fact a minus figure, in that she makes other people stupid too). Secondly, I’m not as worried and upset about the pain for the little man as some people fear. Both the doctor and my husband expected some kind of tears or emotional reaction from me at the time, which is a little unnecessary. This isn’t a car crash or traumatic event. These are necessary, even to be welcomed. They’ll protect him in ways even I can’t.
Just to note this; Each time I’ve gone home and expressed more milk than ever before. Whatever I’m telling my head, my body is having a different physiological reaction….
