Oliver had his first set of jabs early yesterday morning. If you are in the Pretoria area I would highly recommend the baby clinic at Wilgers Life hospital, the sister that assisted us is a gem!
My little Oli has been poked more times than I would like to admit and possibly even more times than I have been my twenty odd years of existence. I expected the jabs to have the common side affects that they have. I knew they would hurt. But I never considered just how painful they would be. Or how inadequate I would feel when all the comfort I have in my heart couldn’t make up.
The crying stopped and he seemed fine until about 3 o’clock yesterday afternoon when he started feeling cranky. Oli had a bit of fever, thankfully nothing hectic, but he definitely didn’t feel like himself and every time we picked him up or shifted his around his little body was aching.
