  • My daughter was fine. I gave her a dose of tylenol about an hour before she had them. She had no reaction what so ever. She was a but cranky after the ones when she was 2, but I think cause she was mad she had to get shots. She is 5 now and is perfectly fine. She is smart and has never been "behind" at anything.

  • My daughter's only problem was that she would be cranky the rest of the day, but the next morning she was back to normal every time.

  • Don't listen to vaccination horror stories. They are perfectly fine for your baby! My son did cry for about a couple minutes but I brought things that he liked to cheer him up and if needed you can always give them the recommended dose of Tylenol.

  • After my son's 1st set of shots @ 2 months he was fussy for a few days but that was it. Never had a fever, rashes, etc. and it only happened the 1st time.

  • Oh and I forgot to add that that was without Tylenol so he did pretty good.

  • My son didn't have any problems. He is usually just overly sleepy and can be a little more irritable..but usually only lasts the rest of the day...then he's back to my happy little goofball =)

  • Other than the usually being fussy after a shot ... My kids had no problems! I really wouldn't worry to much about it. Sure there are many side effects, but very rarely do they happen especially with kids who are healthy. If your baby has an illness of some kind consult with your doctor about your concerns. Googling, or looking up other peoples issues isn't going to help you! Good luck!
