Q.

kids injections

My baby didn't go for her nine months injection yet. It's been two weeks now. Does it really matter if she's two weeks late? And as it happens my eldest has to go for her five year old injection. I get shivers just thinking of her tantrum if we have to take her. What can I do to calm her. I've told her that she has to go and she just runs to her room and cries.

Your baby can certainly have the shots done now. Your daughter needs lots of calm reassurance. She must have the injections.I hope that she gets a caring and patient nurse who will not hurt her.

try giving her a drop of rescue remedy on her tongue before you go for injection. It jsut calms them a bit. It's normally used for shock yo can get it at the chemist and it's a natural product.
