Not much fun the other day when we took the baby to the doctors for his second set of injections. The first time we hit upon the fact that straight after the injections we stick a bottle in his gob and he calms down quite quickly.

So we were all ready again this time. He reacted with much louder crying as the needles went into one thigh and then the other. As the plasters went on the bottle went in. He gobbled at it hungrily and that really did help him calm down.

Unfortunately while I was holding and feeding him one of his thighs was against me – the one that decided that a little bit more blood than normal was coming out. So there I was a father with his child’s blood on his jumper. We got him cleaned up and covered up again, but this is a first – he’s deposited a number of bodily fluids on me, but this was a first time for blood!
