Back in the day every baby had their injections, well. I thought they did. Turns out my other half never had any of his immunizations and he has never been ill or have any allergies.
Is that pot luck or not?
Lennon had his first set of injections on Tuesday and he took it very well. He didn’t cry at all and ended up screaming the place down when I put his coat back on after. Weird child I know.
Ever since he got them done I’ve been wondering if I should have even got them done. I’ve spoken to a few Mums recently about this and I’ve had mixed reviews back. There is just so many different types of injections they need now and it makes me wonder what’s actually inside them. Should we really be filling our babies up with all this medication.
The one I was desperate for him to have was the meningitis one. After working at a previous nursery I work at now and a little girl sadly passed away from bacterial meningitis, it was so sudden and so heartbreaking.
