Break my heart. Three shots in her little legs. I haven't heard her cry like that since she was born. She was over it in about 8 seconds, but still. Got them around noon. At about 6pm she started getting fussy and that lasted until 10:30pm. Slept normal, but has been more clingy today and just seems a bit wiped out. (poor thing!) I know her legs are tender, but I'm really glad that she got them, especially with an airplane trip coming up soon.

Who else is vaccinating?

We did ours last week. He had the 3 shots in his pudgy legs and the Rotateq drink which he took like a champ! But yes, the scream is bad. Fortunately he was due for naptime and he basically screamed for a few seconds and just passed out!

We are but we have another month yet. Baxter's vacs are scheduled for April 3. I already told DH to get the time off so he can come with me for emotional support

Lucy had them earlier this month. She was very sad but fell asleep shortly after. That evening/night she was fussy, especially if I accidentally put pressure on her thighs.

Marshall goes the 11th of March. I hate seeing them cry but I know it's for the best and generally they're over it in just a few seconds. It's when they are bigger and start realizing what that needle means, that is the hardest!

Just make sure to give tylenol (your dr can tell you the correct dosage) about an hr before you go and then every 4hrs (read your bottle, it's been a while since I had to use it ) afterwards. It'll help alot! Oh and holding a warm wet rag to the injection site and making sure she moves her leg around helps a ton too!

That reminds me of when my niece got her ears pierced at 10 months. I cried more than her!

We are! Sophia has been getting stuck since she was born poor thing. We we came home from the hospital she was on the biliblanket because she had janudice and a nurse came ove every day for 4 days to stick her to check her levels.....she screamed and I felt so bad. She just had her 2nd round of hep B vaccinations 2 weeks ago and we go back on wednesdays so I am assuming that means more.....

We are only doing the vaccinations recommended by our doctor. He gave us a specific list of the ones David has to have, the rest (he said) are optional. So David won't be getting hit too hard with injections as an infant.

Sophia got 3 shots in her leg today and she also an oral vaccine too (that she didn't mind)...she screamed as well but for a while too....I felt sooo bad!!! Now, I am paranoid watching for a reaction. The dr said she can get a fever but not likely and that they don't recommend tylenol anymore for this age so just to call if it happens.....my poor baby!

We are vaccinating as well. He screamed something awful, but when I got him dressed and put him back in the sling he calmed down a little. He slept for the next day and a half, and was definitely more clingy.

About the Tylenol, our doctor said that we should NOT give him any pain killer or fever reducer before OR after the vaccinations, because it reduces the effectiveness of the antigens. This is not the first time I've heard this. Here's a WebMD article that summarizes the reasoning nicely:

Tylenol May Weaken Infant Vaccines
