Fussy baby

My daughter got her 2-month vaccines yesterday & she's been very fussy all day. I know this is normal, but I'm just unsure if I should give her some tylenol...I can't tell if she's in pain or uncomfortable or something. What do you think?

  • I would give her some Tylenol it is made for times like these. Our doctors always informed us to give baby Tylenol after the shots no matter what.

  • you are right it is normal.
    try making sure that nothing is irritating her injection spot. you could give her tylenol, but if you breastfeed, it works best.

  • The injection spots don't seem irritated at all, no swelling, redness, or bruising. No fever. And I have been nursing her whenever she wants. She's not crying, just seems very anxious and antsy.

  • She probably just doesn't feel well and doesn't understand why she feels the ways she does. It is all new to her. If nursing isn't really a comfort I would give her a dose of tylenol. If it helps, then you know.
