Taking your baby to get their first vaccine shots is probably among the worst 'firsts' for any parent and their newborn but one US-based dad, Antwon King Lee, managed to make it a joyful experience. 

The video showing the sweet moment between father and son first went viral in 2017 but has again captured the internet showing just how much of a difference a parent's love can make during a painful situation. 

The video shows Lee giving his then 2-month-old-son, Debias, a pep talk before getting the shots. "You gonna be good. I know you gonna cry, but it's okay to cry. You're going to be okay," Lee tells his baby while holding his hand. 

As you'd expect, Debias begins to scream as soon as the doctor starts with the first of three injections! "Man, I know, I know!" Lee shouts. 

As soon as the doctor is done, Lee picks up his son to console him. 

"Come on to dad. I know they did you wrong."
