And so, the mission begins!
Pearl had to have her third set of immunisations today. I never look forward to those things; I know it's for the best but seeing my usually quiet and content little baby screaming with tears running down her cheeks is just horrible. I'm sure other mothers agree!
The best way to pacify her afterwards is to breastfeed, and there's absolutely no way I'm going to wait until we get home - I'm not letting her scream and continue to be upset while I put her in the car seat and make the journey. So I breastfed in the waiting room at the doctor's surgery. Soon my little one was feeling sleepy and so far, two hours after her jabs, she has been fine. Let's hope it lasts the rest of the day, as my sister-in-law tells me that these four-month immunisations are the worst!
