I think for any baby the most important thing during any shots or blood tests is presence of its parents. And as a matter of fact I think concentration is the main problem here. If the baby does not realize that it is going to get a shot it will not get frightened and then certainly it will not get frightened and hurt. So what we can do is we should try to steal its concentration.
