Prior to your appointment, you may choose to administer an over-the-counter analgesic to your little one 30-60 minutes beforehand. This can aid in limiting the amount of soreness experienced by your baby. Please seek the advice of your pediatrician and review label packaging for the proper dosage, prior to administering any type of medication to your child.
