My baby is 2 months old and got her first immunization shots today. The doctor said she would be uncomfortable and sore at the injection spot. She also said there's a chance the baby could get a slight fever. Any experienced mom's have any advice on how to comfort babies during this time? anything will help! thank you!

My daughter got a little fussy after her shots, had bruises at the injection sites, and just all around was a sad thing.. She wanted me to hold her and she pretty much just clung to me, so I tried to just do anything soothing I could think of and she was fine..But I bathed her and just let her play and splash, she loves her tub time. Then put a cool washcloth on the bruises and pretty much just babied her until she seemed to be doing okay:)

I just tried to comfort my son and make sure I can do all I can to make him comfortable. After his 2 month shots he did develop a fever, so I followed his doctor's advice and gave him Tylenol, which seemed to help. He also seemed to want to sleep a lot more.

Babys are not suppost to have baby vicks untill at least 3months it says on the packages. ALSO There is studys proving Giving babies Tylenol may blunt vaccine effects. Google it. or check this out http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/33331643/ns/... I would try the Johnson sleepy time soaps and lotions they work miracles to soothe baby. Try to not put any pressure on your babys legs and try not to rub the legs. If your nursing do it a lot it helps soothe baby. Good Luck.

a couple things we were told to do by people who had kids and the doctor is before you take them to get their shots give them tylenol that helps if they get fever or anything like that. the other thing a lady had told me to do it once the nurse or doctor gives the shot rub vicks baby vapor rub on teh injection site that will help numb the site and make baby easier to deal with. I have 5 1/2 month twin girls and we did this after we did our 4 month shots and it seemed a lot better this time around.
