My 6 month old has a fever and has been throwing up (got shots yesterday).

My poor baby girl has a fever I've been keeping down with tylenol and she started throwing up around lunch time. Her babysitter said she threw up 4 times and she was only over there for about 2 hours! I gave her a bit of pedialyte. What else should I do? Is this a normal reaction to 6 month old shots?!

  • You need to watch how high that fever gets with shots. My son ended up with a fever of 104.5 and that is dangerous. I encountered a time when the medicine didn't seem to be doing the job. The hospital told me to either sit him a freezing cold bath or pack him in ice. I had trouble with the thought of packing my kid in ice to bring down his temperature. Those shots were a constant reminder of the things you don't want to experience in giving them those so called "routine" childhood vaccines.

  • I called. They told me to keep her hydrated and if she seems to be getting dehydrated or her fever gets to 105 to take her to the ER. =( I feel so bad for her.
