  • Mine always got temps with every shot...I think it had to do with the stress from it. As long as tylenol alternated with motrin takes it down and controls it and there isn't any other side effects, I never worried. If you are concerned you should call the doc

  • up to 100.4 is normal in a newborn. and underarm is far from accurate. If you are concerned, take it rectally. but I'd say pass on the tylenol. Let his body fight if that's what it's doing. Only offer tylenol if he's obviously uncomfortable/hurting or the temp is too high.

  • My dd just had her 4 month shots and she had a fever the next day - started at 102 and went down...I didn't notice a temp after her first set of shots either.
