Pain is an un-pleasure experience to all or any individual; infants are more sensitive to pain than older children and adults, thanks to their still- developing brains. The pediatric pain experience involves the interaction of physiologic, behavioral and situational factors. The present study aims to assess the effectiveness of sucrose solution on immunization pain among infants. A quantitative quasi experimental research design was conducted among 30 infants by employing a convenience sampling technique and 15 were divided on top of things and experimental group. The demographic data was collected using structured interview questionnaire. The pre-test was done to assess level of immunization pain by visual analogue scale for both the experimental and control group. The experimental group was given sucrose solution to regulate group. A routine care then the post test was done. The study results show that the extent of pain was considerably reduced within the experimental group than the control group within the post test at p< 0.005. This means that sucrose solution is simpler non pharmacological method and price effective’s methods to treat immunization pain among infants. The results of the study were that sucrose solution as no side effects and it easy and cozy methods which may be practiced to treat immunization pain.
