The immunisation schedule is on the back pages of your baby’s blue book. Your GP provides immunisation commencing when your baby is 2 months. It’s important to find a GP you feel comfortable with. Feeding or at least cuddling your baby during immunisation will provide comfort for your baby. Some parents apply EMLA cream onto the baby’s thigh to numb the injection site an hour prior to immunisation (ask your chemist). It may be wise to have baby Panadol on hand in case of common reactions like pain and fever. Again don’t forget to take your baby’s blue book.
