I caused a storm of emotions, disagreements and comments with my previous topic about treating a child. Well, I’m glad that he did not leave you, girls, indifferent. Today I want to touch on the subject of vaccinations and preparation for them.
The approach to the treatment of a child is not quite standard for me, since I treat my son mostly with homeopathy. Someone believes in its power, some do not – the personal right of everyone. But I think the less a son gets the chemicals, the better.
Our mothers vaccinated us without any preparation, and at school age they didn’t even ask for consent. You come to school, the whole class is sent to the nurse and vaccinations are given to everyone, except for those who have contraindications in the medical record.
Now everything is much more complicated. Each vaccination is done only with the written permission of the parents. I decided that my son will do them, but not all. We have had several cases in the city with very bad consequences, so for me every vaccine is a small test. I am always very worried, I reinsure myself as much as possible and I am only taking a 100% healthy child for vaccination.
Opinion district pediatricians
Prepare the child for vaccination in order to reduce the risk of complications. But many pediatricians in district clinics send a child to be vaccinated with a runny nose or diathesis, as long as there is no fever or obvious symptoms of a certain disease. The main thing for them is to have a tick in their journals and reports about vaccination.
Many mothers agree to lead not very healthy child. Maybe I’m too worried and worried for nothing, but if complications arise, God forbid, I won’t forgive myself, so I am guided only by my opinion and test results.
Preparation for vaccination
And now I would like to dwell on the main stages in the preparation for vaccination.
Before each vaccination, we donated a blood test and a urine test. First, they are needed to identify hidden inflammatory processes. And secondly, we do not often pass tests, and sometimes it is necessary to check a child.
We took Zodak or Fenistil three days before and 3 days after vaccination. I believe that taking such drugs is justified for children prone to allergies. In the first year of life, we occasionally had allergic rashes, and therefore we had to take them. And if there is no diathesis, then it is better not to burden the organism once more and not to lubricate the vaccination picture. Having taken the drugs, you will not see the real reaction of the body to the introduced vaccine.
3) Buying a vaccine
I put it in a separate item, because we made only paid vaccines. I don’t know if it’s right or not, but I’m more relaxed. I choose a vaccine that suits me in many ways. This is the quality of the vaccine, the manufacturer, feedback on the vaccine and the minimum of the complications faced by vaccinated children. If we talk about DTP, we bought Ifanriks IPV, because I did not want to be vaccinated against hepatitis and CIB infection.
4) Hike to the pediatrician and neuropathologist.
Before each vaccination, a pediatrician must be examined. And in the first year of life is also a neurologist, because Vaccinations for children with neurological problems are prohibited, and only a doctor can reveal this. The pediatrician should carefully examine, ask about the condition of the child in the last few days, about medications that can be given to the child and about hereditary diseases and predispositions, if any. I see the attitude of the doctors in our clinic, so I always go before the vaccination to the doctor I trust, and only then to the district officer for the referral.
5) Restriction of contacts.
Before vaccination, it is best not to visit shops, playgrounds and entertainment centers. It is best to have less contact with strangers. If the child attends kindergarten, it is best not to drive the child 3 days before and 3 days after vaccination.
Whether or not to prepare a child for vaccination is a matter for each mom. But carefully pass inspection before it is necessary. Do not rely on the full return of the doctor, yourself carefully monitor the condition of your baby. After all, better than mom, no one will take care of him.
