Baby got first round of immunizations today

Heartbreaking to see her cry that much. She's been sleeping almost all day after her morning appointment, waking to eat of course. Is this normal? Thanks.

  • Totally normal. She will be like this for a few days and probably have a low grade temp tomorrow or maybe the next day.

  • yup! Just watch her temp. but she'll be back to normal in a day or two. The first ones are usually the ickiest.

  • Yes, it's normal and the dr told us to give her infant's tylenol every 4-6 hours for pain for the first 24 hours. You might check the dosage with the doctor. It goes by their weight. So sorry and big hugs!

  • aw, poor baby. mine gets hers tomorrow. hope she feels better!!

    Answer by Wheepingchree at 6:49 PM on Jan. 28, 2010

  • Do NOT listen to Zakysmommy - your baby is NOT old enough for motrin! Only give her tylenol, and only the amount your doctor said/says.
