  • Giving it to them while asleep? That would wake them up for sure!

  • The injection site and surrounding area could definitely be tender and achy.

  • Depands from child to child. Some doctors reccomand to give them a dose of kids Motrin before they go to bed for two reasons. They could develop a low fever and also for the pain. You can try that and you're worry and pain free.
