When Lacie had her eight week jabs, she also was immunised against Rotavirus.
The immunisation is an oral vaccination and basically protects them from a highly infectious stomach bug that can cause an unpleasant bout of diarrhoea, sometimes with vomiting, tummy ache and fever. The problem is, they obviously give her a small dose of the virus, so it’s vital that for the next three weeks, me and mark wash our hands after every nappy change and don’t suck her dummy when it needs carrying or cleaning. Basically because the vaccine is given to your baby by mouth, it’s possible that the virus in the vaccine will pass through your baby’s gut and be picked up by whoever changes their nappy. It could also be on her dummy, so sterilisation is vital over the next few weeks.
Basically, the cleaner allows you to sterilise dummies on the go, is compact and really easy to use. You fill to line with water, dissolve a Milton tablet, insert the sponges and pour away any excess water. You’re then ready to go and can sterilise as many dummies as you wish for 24hrs! The sterilising process takes less than 15 minutes and is made by a brand that I really trust. I never leave the house without it. I can’t tell you how many times we have dropped her dummy – or I’ve found it in my 2-year old Nephew’s mouth. Cheeky little monkey!
Lacie had her eight week jabs yesterday. These are given by injection (one in each leg) and then by mouth via a dropper. She was such a brave girl and had no real bad side effects apart from lethargically and sleepiness.
I was so proud that she was super brave that today we spent the day having lots of cuddles and playtime, which is where her new toy this Fisher Price Rainforest Friends Crib to Floor Mobile came in. We had fun for a good hour, with smiles and everything. She even played with it whilst me and Daddy ate our dinner. A whole dinner without any cries or cuddles – result!
Basically, the mobile sits on the floor and plays up to 20 minutes of music and features 8 colourful friends that spin overhead. The bright colours and patterns really caught her attention – she didn’t know where to look!
There is also a mirror and bat-at rollerball which keeps her happy during tummy time and encourages her to lift her head up and play with what’s in front of her, plus the Tiger, Lion, Monkey and Frog plush characters on the mobile can be brought down and attached to the base, providing great bat-at and reach & grasp play. There is so much to play with.
Most of all the music isn’t annoying AT ALL. It’s upbeat and fun and include lullabies and nature sounds to calm and soothe.
This is her in action…well and truly amazed by the colourful animals.
