My son got his shots today

My son is 4 months and got 3 shots today. The doctor said I could give him more tylenol around 10 or 11 but he is not acting like it is bothering him. Do you think I should give it to him?

  • When my son got his two months shots I only gave it to him once. And the next day he woke up and was screaming like he was in pain. It wasn't a hunger cry. And he acted like his legs were hurting. So I gave him some tylenol and a bit later he was completely fine, just a lil fussy.

  • i never did but thats just me. my daughter has never needed tylenol after shots. keep an eye on him, if he starts acting fussy or seemingly like hell need it then give it to him, otherwise there is no need to use it

  • I might just to be sure. I little tylenol won't hurt. just give one dose because it not only helps with the pain but it also helps with the swelling.
