We are delaying vacc's for our 1 yr old. At his appt yesterday he got prevnar and HIb (2nd I think...)
I keep hearing about the babies who are tired and grumpy after the vaccines. We were ready for a tired grumpy night.....Instead-he was up from 1am-4am.....He woke up at 1 with a fever, so I gave some tylenol. Then he felt like he was getting hotter. I didn't have motrin at all, since I generally give limited meds. So around 2:30 I go to take his temp again and the dang battery is dead in the thermometer . So, now I am not sure if he is hot enough that I need to give motrin, or if I can let it go. Yes, during this time DH and I are passing him back and forth trying to get him to sleep, he falls asleep for a few minutes, then wakes up. So we change his diaper, and he just starts giggling and giggling and playing. (Now I am slightly worried he is delirious) Still feeling pretty warm, so DH goes to CVS for a new battery and motrin (3:30 AM drugstore runs, my favorite), and of course, by the time he gets back, DS is not feeling as warm and is starting to mellow out.
So, we go for a car ride (would have been a stroller ride, but -8 wind chill last night). He falls asleep, now it is 4:30 and he falls into a nice sleep,...until 5:30 (give up, give motrin-hoping that it will ease some pain(?) discomfort(?) and I can sleep), rock back to sleep...sleeps until 6:30, rock back to sleep....sleeps until 7:30, Give up, get up, Now I am a mess at work and DH is a mess at home (he's SAHD).
OK-partial vent/rant. But also, is this normal? Anyone else have a wired baby after vacs? Is the next one gonna be worse?
