Ease the Pain of Infant Vaccinations

Worried about the pain your baby feels during vaccinations?

A randomized trial has found that swaddling and distracting an infant can alleviate some of their pain.

Researchers tested a strategy known as the 5 S’s: swaddling, side or stomach positioning, shushing, swinging and sucking on a pacifier. All of them reduced pain scores and crying, according to the study, published in the journal Pediatrics.
