My 2 month baby just had his vaccination today and is in a heap of pain! He'll fall asleep for about an hour then wake up screaming at the top of his lungs. I gave him infants tylenol but it only works for the first hour. I've tried swaddling the 5s's a binki but it only works for a few minutes. Can someone please give me ideas on how to ease his pain? I'm a first time mom and seeing him cry in pain just breaks my heart! Someone please help!

Maybe his suffering from body aches or fever, Monitor his body temp, if have fever sponge bath in lukewarm water and if ever there is a red swelling at injection site just apply cold compress at it.
