First, you need to know which vaccine will beInoculate a child. Ask the pediatrician about its possible consequences, side effects. Often inoculation can cause an allergic reaction, in a pediatric medicine cabinet for such cases you should have suprastin or another anti-allergenic drug for children. Sometimes the doctor appoints to give anti-allergenic drugs to the child 3 days before the vaccination. This is especially true for children suffering from food and other allergies.

The day before the vaccination is not recommended to enter intoBaby diet new products. It is better to make a habitual menu of dishes, which the kid used more than once. Use the usual menu on the day of vaccination.

Before vaccination, a pediatrician is required to check, even a common runny nose has severe consequences after vaccination. Also, make sure that everyone in your family is healthy, since the immunity of the child after a vaccination has been reduced for some time and will not be able to fight back the disease. Therefore, in the first days after vaccination, it is not recommended to go with a child to crowded places and even visit. Let no one come to visit you.

After the child was vaccinated, noHurry up to leave the hospital home. Wait for 15-20 minutes, if after this time the child's condition is satisfactory, the temperature did not rise and there was no allergic reaction, then you can safely go home.

Some types of vaccinations (in particular,Complex) are heavily carried by children. The fever may rise, so it is necessary to have in the medicine cabinet children's antipyretic syrups or candles.

The total time of walking for the first two days after inoculation is reduced to half an hour. Do not walk with the child in crowded places, where he can pick up the infection.

Do not scratch the injection site, but if in placeInoculations formed a dense tubercle, you can anoint it with iodine, so that it quickly dissolves. If the doctor has appointed you a second appointment, you must necessarily reduce the child to him, because some vaccinations are subject to medical examination.

It is also important to psychologically adjust the child to"Prick", so as not to drag the resisting baby into the treatment room by force, thereby traumatizing his psyche. Usually, children are afraid of injections and actively resist them. In order not to get into an embarrassing situation, on the day of vaccination, tell the baby why you will go to the hospital, that the vaccination is very important for his health, that it is put to all small children. Tell us how you were given injections as a child and you did not cry, because the injection is like a mosquito bite: it does not really hurt. Let the baby know that you are with him, and the aunt-doctor is not angry at all and will put the injection very quickly, so quickly that he will not notice!
