My little one just had her first set of shots today she had three. That was earlyer this morning now being later in the evening i noticed she is really hot (she has a fever) Is this normal? Also she is just getting over a cold, but she was a lot better today so i went ahead with the shots. Now that she got a fever im freaking out, i don't want her to get sick again. I don't have meds to give her, and wont till later so is there anything else i can do to make her fever go down?

A low to moderate fever is a normal reaction after vaccination; its a sign that her immune system is working to "fight off" the antigens and creating antibodies. I personally believe in leaving a fever alone generally, as it is the body's natural defense mechanism and there have been studies demonstrating that giving Tylenol after vaccination may interfere with the antibody production. A low to moderate fever in a baby is anything under 103, but ff her temp is over 101 you should give the pedi a call just in case; if nothing else, its extra peace of mind.

I wanted to mention that lukewarm baths (not cold) are effective in helping a little one cool off. All the best...
