Q. Which type of vaccination is good, painless or painful?


 

Hello doctor,

My son's tongue comes out while sleeping and most of the time. He is six weeks old. While breastfeeding, he uses his tongue to suck the milk. Is this normal? Please advice.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Since the child is just six weeks old, you need not worry.
  • It is normal for the baby to do this. It is just a variation.
  • Do not panic and just relax. Watch your baby grow and change habits as he grows.

Hi doctor,

Thank you so much. I have one more doubt. Which type of vaccination is good, either painful or painless?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Thanks for your feedback.

  • As per the studies and previous experiences, painless vaccines are not effective. So, I suggest you go with the painful vaccine only.
  • For pain, you can always use a mild painkiller like Paracetamol after vaccination.
