Double vaccination


Look at this pitiful look :-p Notice the 2 cartoon bandages? 😉
Benny just had Pediacel + Prevnar jabs, one on the right thigh and another one on the left thigh :-p
Pediacel is a combination vaccine against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough (pertussis), polio and Hib infection.
Prevnar is a vaccine used to protect infants and young children against disease caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus).
According to Ben’s paediatrician, it is better to take 2 jabs on same day, rather than on 2 different days within the same month. So daddy decided to go for what is best for Ben.
Benny did cry but just for a little short while. 🙂 Prevnar might cause little fever, daddy is monitoring Benny now, so far, his body temperature is still ok.

As usual, the paediatric clinic weighed Ben, it was 7kg :-p Overweight? According to paediatrician Benny supposed to double his weight only at fifth month….
Usually breastfed baby will not be overweight. Since Ben is now on 70% BM and 30% formula, I think he is not overweight. He does not look fat at all, just not thin 🙂
Ben’s height is 62cm. I think he is in good size, well done mummy!
