How did your baby deal with the 6 month shots?

Same as the 2 and 4 month ones or different? My son has them on Tuesday. The 4-month shots actually went really well for him. They didn't seem to phase him too much.

And if you're against vaccinations, please do not respond.

  • about 30 seconds of crying... have a bottle ready afterwards... it really helps. they aren't really any different that the others.

  • make sure you watch for side effects that could point to vaccine related illnesses such as mercury poisoning and other severe allergies. Things like persistent fever, skin irritation, unresponsive behavior from baby, and excessive crying just to name a few.
