Did you cry when your baby got shots?

I have noticed that a lot of moms say they cry right along with their baby when the baby gets vaccines. I never cried or had the urge to cry, I feel anger toward the person hurting my baby but I keep it to myself.

Did you cry when your baby got shots?

    I didn't...I knew it was something that was helping him and that helped me feel better. But I was so quick to pick him up! They told me how many shots he was getting and I counted and as soon as they were done I swooped him up. They put the band aids on while I was holding him. lol

      I don't. I feel bad... but I don't cry. I know it's necessary and seeing your baby in pain sucks... but it's better than the alternative in my opinion ;)

        I didn't cry when they were babies :). I knew the best thing for me to do was to stay calm :)

          I work for Ellsie's pediatrician so I can't really be upset with the nurse giving her the shots since they're my coworkers and I okayed the shots to begin with. So if I were to get mad at anyone it would be myself. lol She definitely makes me feel guilty, but I don't cry. She gets over them pretty quickly. My husband and I take turns holding her legs/arms for the nurses each well check. I did 2 month, he did 4 month, I did 6 month , no shots at 9 month, so he gets the lovely privilege of holding her during her big 1 year shots. It works out for us that way.

            I don't cry, but depending on the nurse doing the shots, I get annoyed. One nurse does not let me hold James while getting his shots. The rest give me the option, and he usually does a little better if he's being held by me.

                  Yes I did, I still tear up when someone is sticking my child with a needle! So hate it, I know it's to protect her from the infectious people. Yep sore subject not a fan of needles and I don't care for the immunizations though I know some are practical while others aren't.
