I already knew my peds will go either way, but for legal reasons they cannot tell u how they feel or what they think ... Thankfully I have another holistic pediatrician who talked to me for an hour about vaccines.
Anyway. Yesterday at his 2 month I had a gut instinct to get prevnar 13. Nothing else. The alternative dr assured me prevnar has the least risks. So I felt better.
My son got the shot. I told myself it was to protect his health and I choked back tears while breastfeeding him as they injected it and he cried.
Fast forward a few hours. Last night he cried ALL NIGHT. He wasnt soothed at my breast. He sleeps with DH and I and he was crying an awful high pitched cry I've never heard. At one point he felt hot so I rubbed a tepid wash cloth on him even though our thermometer did not show a fever. It gave two totally different readings in a row and we have thermometer issues anyway.
My son is usually so happy and easy going. Now that I've learned his cues better he almost never cries unless I miss a cue that he's hungry. I feed on demand.
Now I'm terrified of doing any other vaccines! Maybe that's a post for a different board though.
I've rambled on and now I'm done thank you for reading.
