A nice way of vaccinating the baby


I have a very interesting method of reducing the anxiety faced by older infants when they see the needle in the hand of the vaccinating doctor/nurse.
Prepare a " Kitty " or a " Puppy ",with a large hole in its thigh area. Tie a 12 inch thread to both sides of the cardboard kitty /puppy. The animal should be about 5-6 inches in height.

When the child is to be vaccinated, tie the kitty/puppy to the child's thigh in such way that the hole is positioned over the exact vaccination spot.Now, when you are about to give the shot, say.." look... the kitty / puppy will now get this shot ! "
The infant will not shrink away from the needle, and will happily allow the " kitty /puppy " to get the shot.
How is that?
Do tell your pediatrician about this.
