Make your child’s injections a breeze! WIN your own Buzzy Bee!

HOORAY! It’s competition time!

To celebrate the release of my new eBook, ‘Supporting a child through injections’, I approached Buzzy4Shots to ask if they would like to donate one Buzzy Bee to be given away in my very first competition… they said YES!!!

By the way, I did not get paid to write my review or run this competition. I have used Buzzy many times and believe it can offer your child great benefits in the way of pain relief.

  1. Last year my daughter had a traumatic experience with a blood test and now she has a major fear of needles. I would love to have the Buzzy Bee on hand for any future injections to minimise any trauma.
    I would also use it on my needle phobic husband! 🙂

    • Oh no Julie! I’m so sorry your daughter had a bad experience! I hope you find my blog useful for helping her through this.

  2. I wish I knew this existed! Unfortunately on a family holiday to Bali in August last year,a female monkey with a baby on her back came racing over to our baby pram and climbed in looking for food (thank god we had just opened the pram and not put baby in yet!!).

    Hubby managed to shoo it away, but unfortunately it felt threatened by Miss 4 who thought the baby monkey was sooooooo cute, and thought she would try to put her hand out to pat the mumma monkey, but mumma monkey decided to latch onto Miss 4’s arm and sink her teeth into her tiny little thumb! We thought the monkey was going to rip it off, but she kindly left her with terrible bleeding puncture marks all the way around, and the rest of us very traumatised to this day, as it just all happened in the blink of an eye!
    We then had to take preventative measures against the Rabies infection, so the poor little vegemite over a series of 4 weeks had 7 injections!!! As you can imagine, Mums calm voice and cuddles don’t cut it now and she is highly anxious about in visits to the doctor or hospital!

    • Oh my goodness Michelle! That sounds terrible! I’m glad you managed to get the best treatment though. There are ways you can help her recover from the trauma of it all. Play Therapy is an amazing tool. If you cannot find a play therapist near you, keep checking back for more info on this site. I’ll keep your story in mind when I’m planning my next few posts.

      • Thank you! She is currently in hospital now with fecal Impaction and urinary infection and it’s taken a 3 nurses, 1 of them being male, to insert an Iv and take a blood sample. She is beside herself and it’s been really traumatic for both of us!

        • Oh dear Michelle!

          You are having a rough time. There are some comfort holds (chapter 2 in my book – THE FREE SAMPLE CHAPTER!) you can try with her. Although if she is really upset from previous experiences it will take some time and play (chapter 1 in my book) before she will succeed with a comfort hold.

          Make sure you take some time here and there for yourself. Maybe a friend can take you to the hospital cafe for a coffee and a debrief? You would have a lot of your own emotions going on there too.
          I hope she gets better really soon!

          Take care,
          Brooke

  3. I would definitely use it with both of my girls who are terrified of needles. Since it is always me who takes them for injections and not my husband, I always look like the bad guy and get the “why are you doing this to me” (their words exactly). I just want to take the pain away from them. This would be perfect. Thanks

    • Oh it would be lovely to have Buzzy when you’re doing the doctor visits solo! Good luck and thanks for entering! 🙂

  4. My 19 month old daughter has struggled with major anxiety at the doctor and I have been using the wonderful methods learned through Parenting by Connection and your amazing site! We are having great success but have pushed off some of her vaccines in order to keep things moving in the right direction. I would love to have a Buzzy Bee as another tool to help make every doctor’s experience less stressful! Thank you for all the work you do!

    • Hi Meredith, That’s wonderful that you have the PbC tools to draw on also. Buzzy would be a great addition to your ‘toolbox’ 🙂 Thanks for entering.

  5. I found out about you through a friend of mine and am just starting to use your tools as my very opinionated little eight month old is showing major signs of discomfort with the Doctor. What was best for her in our mind was being able to do shots monthly so we could give less in one visit. This means we face more visits and mani for shots only which is the main reason for the dislike. I’d love a tool to help us with our monthly visits to make things easier on our little.

    • Hi Kat,

      It looks like you could really do with Buzzy! It must be tough going to get injections so regularly. Thank you for your entry 🙂

    • Hi Laura,

      Thank you for your entry and good luck! It’s terrible having a fear of needles that carries over to adulthood. Buzzy would be good for your needles too!

      Take care,

  8. I would love to try Buzzy with my teenage daughter who has high functioning Aspergers with tactile sensitivities. When she needs to have any form of needle she has a massive meltdown, anything that could help reduce hear fear and sensitivity would be amazing!! I would love to see this in GP, immunisation clinics and ED.

    • Hi Catherine,
      I agree. It would be such an affordable addition to any GP, immunisation clinic and ED.
      I’ve noticed some children with sensory processing issues dislike the vibration of buzzy. I usually give them 30 minutes to play with it to get used to it and then they can decide if they want Buzzy’s help or not. The ice makes the biggest difference to their pain so if your daughter doesn’t like vibration, you could always try a cold pack?
      Thanks for your comment 🙂

  9. This Buzzy will be used for my 2 granddaughters (twins) when they have to have shots. I hate the thought of them feeling scared and then in pain. I remember how hard it was watching my own children get shots.
