My baby is getting his 2 month shots tomorrow and I was wondering if its ok to give him some kind of medicine to help ease the pain? If so what kind and should I give it to him before or after the shots?
The pedi gave me a recommendation and dosage of children's Tylenol or ibuprofen, if my son needed it, but the shot didn't seem to bother him afterwards. He cried initially, and then was fine the rest of the day. But ask your pedi :)
Ask your pedi. I don't think 'baby asprin' is for babies.Motrin/Ibuprophin is for 6+months. My Dr has always saidgive tylenol or motrin about 1 hr before the shots but others disagree with that. So trust your mommy feelings and the Dr's advice.
