need help :(

My 18 month old got 5 shots today (wellness check up) and is very cranky. I did give him some Tylenol and a nap after we got home. He's up now and very cranky and upset. He seems like he's in pain (the legs of coarse). I can't cam him. Anyone have some good soothing idea? He had Tylenol at 2PM its almost 430now.

  • if you have motjrin you can give him a dose of that. its ok to alternate between the two and honestly i think motrin works better for pain then tylenol. Try giving him a warm bath im sure by tomorrow he will be feeling better. poor little guy i hate shots.

  • It's rough, he's going to be upset. He's probably sore and may even be running a small fever. If you can give him a warm bath that may soothe his aching muscles, a nice back rub with some lavender lotion is good too - see if he will let you massage his legs and the shot sites initially it wont be comfortable but it will help him feel better faster. Good luck mommy!

  • You can alternate tylenol and advil(ormotrin) every three hours. A warm bath should help too! GL
