The child is afraid of doctors, kids

The problem of children’s fear of doctors is not new. Many kids do not like trips to the clinic and react with tears on white bathrobes, this is not surprising. Even unwillingly, due to the profession, the doctor hurts the child with pricks, freezes the back with a stethoscope and puts a wooden spoon in the neck.

Reason for fear

My son was afraid of doctors after visiting the ultrasound room. It was no less than a year ago, but the tragedy is still fresh in the memory of the child. The problem is that for the procedure, the boy had to be put on the couch and hold him lying down against his will. Before this incident, the guy wasn’t even afraid of shots, but here, please, the doctors were blacklisted by my son.

Since then, the baby has entered the doctor’s office solely on my arms, tightly hugging my neck. When trying to remove him from his hands and transplant him to his knees, a howling began, which intensified with the intentions of the doctor to begin the examination.

We had a real trouble with a visit to the pool in the clinic. The son loved to swim in it, but he couldn’t stand the sight of the nurse at all. So, while I was taking a shower, and the child was in the care of Yulia Matveyevna, he gave such roulades that the rest of the visitors cursed the good acoustics of the pool. The son calmed down only when he reached the water.

How to help baby

In general, the situation needed to be saved. What came to my mind: to read Aibolit and to lose the situation in the doctor’s office with toys did not bring any fruit. It is obvious that such a small child (and his son at the time was less than a year and a half) did not want to understand anything.

It was decided not to emphasize this fear of the child in general, but to visit the clinic as he wants: to wear it on the arms, to take your favorite car so that the baby feels more confident.


In addition to my husband, the doctor and the nurse also got down to business. We were lucky, we have an excellent doctor on the site, who in each of our visits tried to establish contact with her son tactfully and unobtrusively.

The nurse, who occasionally came across us for a walk, did not give up a dry hello, but stopped to chat. As she herself told me, it is thus easier for the child to understand that the doctor does not always walk in a white robe, and that he is as kind and cheerful as the others.

In the office of our pediatrician child has always been something to distract. For example, now there is an impressive size Christmas tree, decorated with really soul.

Such an attitude of doctors to young patients is bearing fruit. Now my son is already much more confident behaves at the doctor’s office, although he is still afraid.

Almost not afraid ..

Now that he has grown up, going to the reception, I will tell him about what the doctor will do, trying to describe it as little as possible, but truthfully. For example, we go to the manta – aunt will make a button, it will be a little painful. Let’s go show the result – show the pen tete. Knowing where and why he is going, the child feels more mature, responsible.

All the way, he insists on my pen and aunt, and it is not at all against such a procedure, with the condition of sitting on my mother’s knees.

And, most importantly, leaving the doctor’s office, the son still speaks to everyone and waves his hand. He loves it very much, because all adults are touched when he does that, and this little thing makes visiting the doctor even a little pleasant.
