    I'm really worried that Lewis will hate mumy after he's had his jabs. :hissy:

    He'll hate me if I hold him and let someone stick a big needle in him or
    he'll hate me for not stopping the nurse from sticking a big needle in him (if I get her to hold him)

    I don't know which would be better :cry::cry:

    What did you all do and what was your LO like with you after??

    Thanks.

    My mum holds her and I rush in to the rescue after. She settles as soon as I take her.

    I'm thinking I might have to let the nurse hold him, then run in and make him all better with lots of cuddles. :hugs:

    I'm gonna be a nervous wreck by this afternoon :dohh:

    I held her. My mom was willing to but I thought that after the fact hopefully she would remember that mommy was there to make it all better. And when they were done all 4 shots and we went to the wait room she got boobie so it didn't matter too much any more. I was ready to cry during the whole ordeal though.

    I held him and my DH stood next to him and attempted to divert his attention with a rattle!! He still cried, I cuddled him and then fed him and he promptly fell asleep!!

    Later that afternoon, we had a long 2 hour snuggle together, and then he woke up a proper grumpy monkey!!! Think the injections were starting to take effect, but the whole being prodded and poked was all forgotten pretty much straight away.

    MIL held Seth for first two lots as I couldnt bear it, and my OH did it last time. He was fine with both of them afterwards, btu they couldnt settle him straight after, I had to do that. But once he calmed down he was fine with them

    :rofl::rofl:

    Well we've been, he's been jabbed and fingers crossed he's ok. I held him cus I felt sooo bad I didn't want to let him go. He cried briefly (that heart wrenching cry where they go bright red but no sound comes out cus they're screaming so hard) :cry: then calmed down a bit when I gave him lots of kisses, cuddles and his bottle.

    He's been asleep since we got back, about 2 hours now. He doesn't usually sleep for that long during the day, do you think it might be because of the jabs??

    Yeah I'm sure it will be. He'll be right as rain tomorrow.

    Most of the jabs, I've done on my own as DH has been at work. It was pretty chaotic as I got them weighed at the same time. So...strip off.... weigh....dress back up a bit....stick with a needle...scream horrid scream....quick cuddle ...get dressed ...plonk back into buggy ...repeat with baby 2 while baby 1 whimpers.

    I took my Mum with me for the MMR jabs and I made her hold Charlotte as she can do the heart-wrenching cry in a more heart-wrenching way than Tom. LOL! Thank god there's nothing more till they're 3 now.

    with alexas first set of needles, i was scared she would be angry with me, but also i could not watch the doctor give her the needles, and neither could oh since he is scared of needles, so the doctor managed her on her own. the second set was easier and i held her.

    awww its a scary thing those needles and it will sting for a minute but bubs will be OK!!! He might feel better if his mommy is close by when it happens. Don't worry yourself it's really not as big a deal as it seems :) :hugs:
