Today was slightly traumatizing because Bexley had 2 needles at the doctors and she cried so hard, went red, then didn’t want to feed right away. It just felt so awful because when she’s woken for her checks, shes always so quiet, placid and doesn’t complain and then to get 2 jabs out of the blue like that seems terribly cruel, even though it’s for her future protection. it was totally gut-wrenching for me. Luckily that’s over for now, the next round is at 4 months and I swear I’ll give her some Panadol first this time to take the edge off.
