Hm, that's interesting. I always give my son Tylenol before we got to get our vaccines. I don't think he really needs it; I feel sorry for him when he gets shots and I like to feel like I'm doing something to make him more comfortable.

Me too! I'm going to talk to his doctor about it before his next round of shots.

Interesting article! I'll ask my Dr about this at Layne's one year appointment & get her perspective on it. Thanks!

My 3yr old son Landan died 23hrs after being diagnosed with Meningococcal Meningitis. It is a potentially vaccine preventable disease. The vaccine isn't on the schedule until 11-12yrs but is approved for use at age 2yrs. Our second son received the vaccine in December 2010 when he was 2yrs old. My son & thousands of other children prove that a vaccine is needed at a younger age.

Interesting. Just got home from getting Angus and Kate some shots and I decide to skip the tylenol unless they seemed to need it. Instead I just gave Gus a lollipop and nursed Kate. She's napping now. If she's fussy when she wakes maybe I'll give her some then, i'll just play it by ear.
