A few weeks ago I published my first post about using Buzzy when your child is getting a needle. Since then, Buzzy has been flooding Instagram while travels around with me everywhere… BUT… the truth is, I have been inundated with emails asking me to ‘show’ you how to use Buzzy. It hadn’t occurred to me to make a video for you all until a friend of mine said, ‘Hey! I know this is easy for you but it isn’t for us! I’d like to actually see the Buzzy in action!’
I set about brainstorming how to make a video with a needle… and Buzzy
At first I thought about how I could ethically give my daughter an injection and film it showing Buzzy in action. Just kidding! I would never do that but there lies my problem… How do I do this?
I ended up releasing this video
It was launched on my Facebook site about 7 days ago. It has already been viewed hundreds of times! People are already seeing how gooooooood this could be in their own homes and they are actually entering my competition to win one of their very own!
So if you missed it, watch on!
The key points are:
- You really need to let your child play with Buzzy before the appointment. They need to be familiar with the feeling of the vibration.
- The ice pack must be cold! It provides over 60% of the pain relief!
- Buzzy’s vibration should be switched on just as the needle is about to go in. Any earlier and your child’s nerves will be ‘used to’ the sensation and the needle will be felt as per usual.
Until next time…
