jack had his 1yr ones in his arms, that made me feel bad!
my sister just had her 4yr old ones, mum explained just before she went in, yes it would hurt but it was so she didnt get nasty bugs at school, and told her if she was good she could have a comic and a sweet when it was over. my sister is very sensitive and vey dramatic, she screamed but then said do i get my sweetie and forgot all about it!

I didn't tell my 4 year old.I just took him and dealt with the fireworks after.At least I didn't have to carry him up the street screaming.
My one year old had hers in her thighs.
Can you get separate appointments so one doesn't see the other?That usually helps when I have more than one to do

My eldest has the 40mth jabs tomorrow afternoon, haven't told her yet because she worries about things too much, I'm planning on explaining it tomorrow over lunch so she knows whats going to happen but doesn't have too long to worry about it. Going to take her out for a treat afterwards too and hoping that works ok. My sister in law said this way worked best for her girls.

My toddlers both got behind with their jabs,but the nurse wouldn't do them all in one go.She said they had to space them out at least four weeks.She wouldn't do the 2 and 4 year old together,cos they'd see the other one and know what was happening.Same with the 1 and 2 year old.I've been up and down that surgery for weeks,I've just got Matilda's MMR to catch up now.
Immunisations are important but your nurse could've let your little boy have one another time,although that said at least it's all over in one go.You don't have to do that again for a while.Feels very mean doing it

Poor baby,sounds nastyHope fully he won't remember too much about it.
We have two practice nurses,one's better than the other.When my son was 6 weeks his belly button hadn't healed properly so he had this ointment for it (the same stuff they use for warts and verrucas so you have to use it carefully)The doctor did the first dose fine, one of the nurses did the second but she got it all over his belly,it took the skin off from just below his chest to right down in his nappy.It wasn't till I got home I saw how bad it was.It looked like he'd been burned.I would have done better to do it myself.I should've taken him back that same day and showed the doctor but I didn't,I just put loads of Sudocrem and a dressing on and it healed fine.I've had to have her do injections since but I don't really have a choice
