Oh not another one. Get ready for a bloodbath of words. Babies get fussy sometimes, for a vast number of reasons.

Well my personal feeling is I'd rather deal with a fussy baby for 24 hours then have a hospitalized baby because they catch something that could of been prevented!

I have a baby girl who is ten days old. I also take care of a five month old baby boy occasionally. He has not gotten any of his shots. Could he pass something on to my baby?

Babies are fussy in general. They can be uncomfortable after getting an immunization, but it is not directly from what is protecting them. If it effects them, it is only one day. I would rather my child be fussy for a day and be protected. Give your baby some tylenol.

The vaccines are not making your baby progressively cranky as she ages. She's becoming her own person and is wanting more freedom.

Babies can be fussy, it's normal and has nothing to do with vaccinations. I had a very fussy baby, she liked being held all the time otherwise she would cry, so I bought an ergo baby carrier, problem solved.

Unless your child is allergic to an ingredient in the vaccine they are perfectly safe to use. Ask yourself this, could you live with your decision to not vaccinate your child further if they died of a preventable disease?

Vaccines are safe and they save lives.

No downs except a little crankiness for a day or so. Ups I never have to worry about my children dying from a disease that was preventable.

lol can of worms opened take a look in Parenting debates and hot topics and on some later pages of welcome to circle of moms and you might be able to get some answers without the bloodbath. Antoher thing is after set of shots number two babies can begin to get fussy because they are limited as to what they're seeing and the fact that they can't move on they're own yet. They're becoming more aware. It may or may not have anything to do with shots it could just be her age.

After getting my baby's first and second set of shots, I've noticed that she has become more fussy. It just makes me wonder how much worth is it in getting these shots???
