Me da consquillas

Antes que nada quiero agradecer sus preguntas y preocupaciones para el tema de vacunación de niños y cuál es mi sentir de este tema. Se VALE tener miedo y TENER preguntas. Soy padre de familia y comparto este proceso con ustedes.

Como padre y familiares tenemos muchos sentimientos encontrados, pero sabemos que queremos proteger con todo lo que tenemos a nuestros hijos e hijas.

No voy a platicar en este post sobre los datos científicos, la información es clara que estar protegido con la vacuna es la mejor opción en este momento (chequen loa videos pasados que hice).

En este video les comparto una ventana a mi seres queridos. El tema de la vacunación puede ser un tema que nuestros hijos puedan y deban de ser partícipes.

Cual es la mejor opción y que opino: te lo demuestro con este video.

Quería esperar un par de días para compartirlo contigo ustedes para darles una respuesta completa de todo el evento de la vacunación de mis hijos.

La realidad que el efecto más grande que tuve durante este proceso es el siguiente:

TRANQUILIDAD

Checa el video. Vas a poder observar y escuchar un frase muy simpática:

🌟“It tickles” / “Hace cosquillas” 🌟

Mamás y papás:
Por favor aquí estoy para preguntas, abro las puertas completamente para poder ir virtualmente a sus grupos de padres de familia, religiosos o lo que usted considere para platicar sobre el tema.

Les comparto el link del video

Before anything I do want to thank your questions and concerns about the issue of vaccination about children and what is my feeling on this issue.

It is OK to be afraid and HAVE questions. I am a parent and I share this feelings with you. As parents and relatives we have many mixed feelings, but we know that we want to protect our sons and daughters with everything we have.

I am not going to talk in this post about scientific data, the information is clear that being protected with the vaccine is the best option at this time (check out the past videos I made).

In this video I share a window of my loved ones.

The conversation of vaccines can be an issue that our children can and should participate in.

Which is the best option and what do I think:

Simply watch this video.

I wanted to wait a couple of days to share it with you to give you a complete answer about the entire event of the vaccination of my children.

The reality was that the biggest side effect they I had during this process was the following:

TRANQUILITY

Check out the video. You will be able to observe and listen to a very nice phrase:

Moms and dads: Please, here I am for questions and concerns, I open the doors completely to be able to go virtually to your of parents, school, companies, unions, religious or whatever you need to talk about this subject.

🌟 “It tickles” / “It tickles” 🌟

Summary of week 8: Vaccines and vaccines…

For all parents: when it gets time to start the vaccines of your baby, it’s always harder for the parents for than the baby… Nobody can disagree that vaccines has been one of medicines top 3 inventions that has saved and prevented horrible diseases for human kind.

Our daughter for the first time (actually, the second time, the first was the hepatitis b vaccine at birth) got her 2 month old vaccines, and of course, we were happy to get to the milestone. I have said a couple of hundred times (at least) the short list of common side effects that the baby can have, it is my version of the “Miranda rights” that cops know by heart, but this time was a little bit different, knowing that my flesh and blood was going to be immunized (and my wife is not a fan of any needles!). She did perfectly great on her weight, height, meeting all her developmental millstones; waiting for the big moment finally, we were prepared. It’s amazing how important it is to have calm parents at the moment of vaccination, even a small infant can tell if mammy and daddy are nervous. Everything was done in seconds, and with a smile at the exit of the pediatrician’s office.

There is always a small probability that the patient (aka: daughter), can have fever, crying spells, sleeping more than usual, redness on the site and even a bump, everything controllable with general comfort measures. But, my daughter read with me all the side effects, choosing to have on that evening fever and sleepiness. You can imagine the 7 missed calls that I had in my cell phone before I left the office. If you have in your mind the question “you knew the side effects”, the quick answer is: YES, YES and YES! You needed to see this infant, bundled up, having her first fever smiling at her parents: I’m fine; it’s just a little fever. I tried 3 different thermometers, having the same answer: your daughter DOES have a fever. She continued to eat, laugh and play, having extended periods of sleep during the day, but by morning, thank G-d she was back to her old self: laughing, moving and doing her own tummy time. Every day, I learn something new, to be humble and reaffirming that when a parent tells me the fears and myths  that have heard about vaccines, I will share my personal story and the peer review information regarding why it’s important, side effects and the probability of having a severe bad reaction the vaccines, my conclusion always is: I’M HERE TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THE INFORMATION, I can’t guarantee 100% that everything will be perfect, but for sure this is a great choice (PLEASE PLEASE go to http://www.vaccines.com/why-vaccinate-fact-01.cfm).

Now to other matters… I can spend a lot of time watching my daughter, amazed on how they  start exploring the world, finding their hands, grabbing things, smiling… No she is moving her legs, trialing objects and cooing, our “sleep, eat, move and poop machine” is actually converting into a “little person”, communicating her needs and fears.  I can’t extend how important it is for any parent to be on top of this, you are the one that knows your baby best.

 

What I’ve learned this week for THE UNOFFICIAL MANUAL ON HOW A PEDIATRICIAN BECOMES A FATHER:

1)    Vaccines are more painful to watch when you are a parent

2)    Having a great time learning from my best teacher… MY DAUGHTER!

Thumb vs Pacifier

When we are babies, none of us were asked if we wanted to “suck our thumb or use a Pacifier (I LOVE THE NAME!), wondering right now about that decision for my daughter. Many lactation consultants and pediatricians believe that there could be a “nipple” confusion if a newborn is exposed to bottles/pacifiers in the first 3 weeks, for sure it’s a nice a idea but I have not yet seen (until now) some one that has not “exposed” their babies to them. In our debate, someone told us, “you can accidentally loose the paci, but you can’t cut out the thumb”… That got us thinking, we waited 3 weeks, limiting her contact to artificial nipples and we started to have a couple of questions in our heads:

1)    Having no choice, but for sure influence in the decision, I would encourage the pacifier for my baby instead of the thumb. The entire concept was commodity, easy handling, decrease risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (AKA: SIDS; could be a topic for another day) thinking that one day in the future “Mr Paci” will go on a trip an never come back…

2)    Choice two: “The Organic Thumb”, you never lose it, they know where it is, but it needs some behavioral interventions (as the pacifier) to finish with it, plus having a finger on the mouth after the child has teeth starts to push  certain areas creating good business for orthodontics.

And for every one… What was your feeling? Did you choose a method? Any tips? Was it hard to “take” it out?

Summary of week 2: A PARENTS LIFE CYCLE WITH A NEWBORN: Poop, sleep and eat…

The first adrenaline rush, the sleep deprivation starts to sync in (that by the way, everybody that thinks that a “doctor”  lasts  longer without quality of sleep because of the “training that we did”, ARE MISTAKEN… That training only last for 72 hours… After that, we become humans again…. hehehehe),  timing is everything… My life cycles are 3-4 hour cycles of poop, sleep and eat when I’m at home, and having those AMAZING and REFRESHING conversation with my wife of how we really don’t believe that we have a daughter, that little package that was in my wife’s “tummy” that moved and we saw her grow… That with Alizas’s smile gives me energy to conquer the world!

I need to ask forgiveness to every parent that I have given encouragement  from the first newborn visit… I always tell you that the first month is hard, I DID NOT UNDERSTAND HOW HARD  WAS IT! Sorry! Now my empathy level has changed, I can actually  see the tired faces of my parents…  And I really appreciate and THANK MY INCREDIBLE WIFE  for the  caring  and love at 3am to my daughter and my extra sleeping time that she creates for me!

What I learn this week  for the  THE UNOFFICIAL MANUAL ON HOW A PEDIATRICIAN BECOMES A FATHER:

1) Team work and time off for everyone…

2) Safety list when your baby is crying (feeding, burping, diaper, rock and everything else…) have a mental list, that will help you troubleshoot your baby

3) Hear all, Read all… The best advice is the proven REAL ADVICE …  Some old stories  from grandma have changed in the past 30 years… (Back to sleep, demand feeding vs organic feeding,  vaccines, etc etc)

4) THERE IS ALWAYS TIME FOR A HUG AND KISS TO YOUR LOVE ONES…  THANK THEM…
