  • you should still give the baby tylenol every 8 hours while awake for the 23 days following all immunizations.... obviously every 4 if a fever develops but there is pain from immunizations and some other things tylenol does in the post immunization period.. as for the intake that is fine in 48 hours you should be back to normal routine

  • Tylenol for 23 days, I don't know about that. Maybe for the 24-48 hours after shots. Yes, that is fine, let her rest.

  • yeah I think that was a typo, if baby is fussy give tylenol otherwise just every 8 hrs for first 24...hon baby is fuine, just doesnt feel well. Just give lots of lovies and tomorrow eating will go back to normal. :o)
