So in two days my baby is getting her 3 months shots and i was wondering if i should give her tylenol, beforehand. Last time she was in real pain and had a low fever so I would hate to see her in pain again... :/

I understand your concern but I wouldn't give her tylenol unless she is in obvious pain or has a fever.

It's best not to give pain relief before the shots as that can mask any reactions they may have.

Thanks for the replies! I gave her tylenol right after the shots and it helped immensly!

Yes ! I wasn't big into giving my son much of any kinds of medication but it helps with the pain during and after the shots!
