  • Shots at 2 months? My daughter didn't get her first set til 4 months, but I guess it depends on the pediatrician. I don't think a few days like that should matter, but I'm not a fan of giving shots to babies that young.

  • I think that its so close to her 2 month mark that its fine.

    the shots are hep b(maybe can be 4mths), DTaP, HIB, Polio,

    I got my son all the shots, but i know some people choose not to get the hep b shot just out of prefrence

  • Just a tip, give your baby some Tylenal about half an hour before the shots. That way it is already in his/her system when he or she needs it the most.

  • Studies show that there is a greater risk with all vaccines for most children younger then 2 years. ...so if you don't want to take the risk you might want to wait 2 years. ...This risk is also increased if your young child is not breastfed.

  • I'd opt out of the Hep B for sure. It's an STD, unless you baby is having unsafe sex or shooting up with dirty needles then she's pretty low risk lol.

    Just WAIT till you're comfortable with your decisions!
