Buzzy mentioned in Health Sentinel: Child life specialists take the worry out of children's surgery -
For Lilly and Spencer, one of the coolest things was the buzzing bee. It is a vibrating ice pack in the shape and color of a bee and is one of several options children can pick to ease the discomfort of getting a needle poke. It works on the gate theory that, if you in some way block the pain pathway between the needle insertion site and the brain's pain receptors, the sensation of pain is thwarted.
“It worked,” Lilly DeArmond said.
Buzzy is featured in The Parent World -
A genius way to help kids overcome their fear of shots.
Buzzy and Bee-Stractors are recommended as the best baby shower gifts on abc15.com. Read "Baby Shower Gifts That Grow with Your Child" by Haley Madden.
Dr. Amy "told me that without her two to three month long maternity leaves, she wouldn't have had the stamina needed to complete her two fellowships." - "Why Doctors Should Be Allowed to Work Part-Time" by Carolyn Anderson on huffingtonpost.com.
My Springfield Mommy: blogger explains how to use Buzzy and then also says that the product helped her son a great deal to manage pain:
"In my opinion, Buzzy is a great item for any first aid kit at home (wings in freezer, so they are ready to go) or in a medical setting. Pain Management is key for any age group and having Buzzy to help drug free is a great thing! I know we will be taking Buzzy along with us for all our future shots!”
My Milwaukee Mommy: blogger explains Buzzy and the features of the First Aid Kit:
“I am happy to say the Buzzy was a great distractor and kept his mind off of what was coming. This is going to be a staple at every appointment from here on out with each of my children. I highly recommend this product if you have a child who is not a fan of those inevitable shots!”
My Chesapeake Mommy: blogger relays her experience using the product on her nieces and said the children did much better with handling pain once they used Buzzy.
“If your kiddos have issues when it comes to going to the doctor this might just be the "lifesaver" you are looking for!”
"You know your children best but it’s worth a try to help ease the anxiety at the very least!"
Buzzy's review on "Twice the Love, Half the Sleep":
"What I love about this is you can put the distraction cards on top of the bee so your child does not see where the needle is going...."
