25th of every month marks another milestone of my baby Aisyah Nur. No doubt she has not reached a year hence nothing to celebrate for yet but as a new mommy I’m bawled over the fact I’ve delivered this small human and continue to be in awe over every little squeak she makes. Today I brought her to my pediatrician for the routine immunisation injection plus rotavirus vaccination. Luckily my paed offers a number of vaccines, and one of that is the pneumococcal vaccine which is a good shield against pneumonia, meningitis and blood stream infection. Aisyah will go through that next month. While I’m happy that I’m able to provide her with a lot of protection, I bet every discerning parent goes through a mix of emotions whenever their infant gets jabbed. The screaming of pain, and the fever aftermath sends many parents home with concern – am I doing the right thing? Is it okay to have all these vaccines in their system? However, when you read news of children hospitalised and dying due to weak immune system comforts me that I’m doing my best to keep Aisyah healthy. 🙂
So there goes my monthly routine. Now have to tend to baby’s after effect of injections – fever. Oh yeah, another sleepless night! Can’t remember of a good one though eversince she arrived on earth but I’m not complaining. Too happy to see her well – that’s every mother’s wish isn’t it?
