My children dislike the doctor’s office. Why? Because it’s associated with shots! Even if we’re going in for a check-up, I can sense their anxiety building up, and as a parent, it makes me feel bad. Doctors are good people!
I recently found out about a new product, one used to lessen the pain of fear and needles in young children: Buzzy.
I have never used Buzzy personally, but after reading the information behind the product, I’m sold! Buzzy provides natural pain relief by combining two neutral sensations, cold and vibration, to desensitize pain nerves. By following the directions, Buzzy can help reduce (and possibly eliminate) the pain from shots and/or the sting from medications.
On Friday, February 28 at 9PM cst, Join Buzzy’s creator, (also a pediatrician) Amy Baxter on ABC’s Shark Tank. Amy will be celebrating and talking about Buzzy, while discussing 5 ways every parent can eliminate needle fear.
Even better, a Buzzy twitter party will take place during Buzzy’s premiere on Shark Tank on Feburary 28th. Participate in the Twitter party for a chance to win a Kindle Fire and Buzzy products by using the hashtag #SharkBuzz.
Check out Buzzy’s website to learn how you can reduce the pain and fear of needles for your children and even yourself!
