The baby had his vaccines last week. At first I wanted to do a delayed schedule, well my husband wanted to and I wasn’t completely against the idea.
After lots of discussion with our pediatrician-who I LOVE BTW- we decided to go with a traditional vaccine schedule, opting out of Hep A. (We opted out of Hep B at the hospital)
So, the shots happened. All 4 and an oral, and I wanted to fall out. The baby took them like a champ. He had an initial look of SERIOUSLY and did cry with the last one. After a few minutes of snugglecuddles he was ok enough to go in the carseat.
We got home and all was normal. He didn’t sleep any more or less. No fever. No fussiness. Then at 2 am he lost his mind. The sites of the shots were hot to touch. I used cool compresses, held him tight and prayed.
The following day he was slightly Mr. Crankypants. After more loving on mom, skin to skin time and more prayer on my behalf, he worked his way into being normal again.
Big sigh.
And to think, we do this again in two months. Were your kids lil maniacs? Or did they do ok?
Fab as usual.
