Do a trial run on an orange or a washcloth. This lets you prepare your child's injection site, know what it feels like to give a shot, and to hear what it sounds like when the needle enters the peel or fabric. Be sure to place the washcloth on a table or other surface (don't balance it on your leg or other body part, for instance,) and then toss the orange in the garbage or the washcloth in the laundry when you're done.
