  • My daughter was like that for 2-3 days after her shots.

  • I would call the doctor just to ask, usually if they get their shots the next day they are fine. If you are worried, I wouldn't hesitate to call- the doctor is there and your baby might have an allergic reaction. It's better to know what's going on rather than just trying to guess! Good luck!

  • My son was like that with his shots for about 3 days :( With my newest baby we are on an alternative vax schedule and it's not as bad... 24hrs at the most.

  • I guess it varies. My son ate normally after his shots. I think if they are lethargic, then you should watch them.

  • I'm sorry. It is a vaccine reaction and should be reported. But your doctor won't do it.

  • When mine where still at the shot age it typically lasted a few days.Give Tylenol and Motrin in the meantime.It helps with any discomfort or fever the child may have.If it went over 48 hours though I would def call the doctor.

  • You can go to to report the vaccine reaction yourself. It's actually the law to report them.
