Natural remedies for painful vaccination site?
I know it's not "natural," but check with your care provider about acetaminophen or ibuprofen (sorry, I can't remember age restrictions on those two!). Both provide pain relief, and ibuprofen is anti-inflammatory. And breastfeeding really IS one the best things - provides extra immune boost, comfort, releases pain-relieving neurochemicals, and has been shown to increase the protection provided by vaccines and reduce side effects! You're doing a great job, mama.
