    I actually didn't prepare him. We just went, and said when the dr has finished we can go have ice cream. He sat down, they distracted him, jab, cried for 10secs, and back to running around like nothing happened, and then asked if we can go for ice cream now.

It got tough toward the end, he would cry with anticipation and it broke my heart each time. But I would tell him how brave he was being and hold eye contact so he wouldn't notice as much and then it would be over. For him, the anticipation was usually worse than the needle, he was always ok a few mins later.
    Ohhh poor little fella
