All babies react differently to shots, so I would see how Arthur feels after them before dosing him with Tylenol but that is just me. What is normal is low grade fever, extra sleepy, slight swelling in the thighs where the injections are given and over all crankiness.

If you are not comfortable with 4 injections, you can request to space them out. We do no more than 2 vax'es at a time and never two new ones. I also delay all vaccines until after 6 months, except for DTap.

Our nurse suggested I nurse B1 during the vaccines at this age and it was the best suggestion ever! I also nursed Bodhi during the heel pricks for jaundice and it went much smoother.
