Hi guys,
Alex's 4 month appt is Wednesday (he'll be closer to 5 months then). He's been sick with a cold/cough/ear and eye infections for over a week. Am I correct in thinking he should not get any shots this time? Anyone have experience with this?

It depends on how severe it is. I know Eric has received vaccines with a mild cold... With an infection, though, I'm willing to bet the doctor will suggest delaying. I would just talk to his ped about your concern and see what s/he says.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for the siggy!

At the appt, ask your Ped. They will be able to tell you if you should hold off or not.
A slight cold, I wouldn't worry and still go ahead and get them. If it's a little more severe, I would hold off until he is all better. But ask his Ped, he can give you his expert opinion.
