Shots!!

My son got his 2month shots today..is there anything i should do to help his legs not be so sore? I cant really tell if they are bothering him, hes in his bouncy now and hes still kicking around. Every now & then he gets a lil'cranky but nothing too extreme. I just want to make sure hes comfy! I asked his dr if i should "bicycle" his legs or anything & he just said give him tylenol 4times a day for 24hours...so that didnt really answer my question lol

  • I can't believe they are pushing the tylenol so hard. It covers up the symptoms of a reaction if child was to have one. *sigh* no wonder I don't trust doctors anymore. Give him time mama, and watch him carefully. Oh and I would also ask the doc why he is pushing pain meds so hard.

  • I always put a warm compress on it and massage the injection site

  • Give him Tylenol as directed by your doctor. It helps to keep any discomfort at bay. Why not give him something to help with discomfort? Why make him be uncomfortable if you know you can help prevent it? That's just mean.

    At diaper changes, move his legs in different exercises to keep the muscles from stiffening up. He's doing it himself, so there may not be much of an issue.

    Warm compress or cool....depends on which the baby prefers/which works better.
