My 2 month old got the DTaP in prep for possible exposure being baby sat on my University campus while I teach. My older DD did not start getting vaccines until almost 4 months because she was so tiny and did not have to come to campus until 6 months old. I worry about every vaccine, but have a great pediatrician who supports selective and delayed vaccination. I am so glad she came through this one with absolutely no negative reaction- no fever, no fussiness. She even slept through the vaccine itself. My Pediatrician uses this shot blocker thing that spreads out mild pressure around the site so they feel the needle less- it works great. Baby just grimaced and kept sleeping. Relief!
Me College Literature Professor (36) and DH (35) married 7/05, together since 1/99; Mom to two lovely and fierce little girls: DD1 2/06 and, after 18 months TTC (and a couple years NTNP), DD2 born 7/3/12! Dedicated AP parent who is for selective (most) vaccination.
I'm glad it went well! Just keep an eye on her for the next couple of days. My kids never had a fever until 2 days later. I just had to have the Tdap, for the tetnus shot, and I my fever didn't hit until the 2nd day either.
Congrats! My son has so far had similar reactions. He actually laughed during his most recent shots. Never any fevers, fussiness, or anything. He just seemed... totally fine. I was totally prepared for a fever or something! Much easier than expected.
That's great. My son (UTD on all his vaxes at 14 months) has only cried a bit for the shots and has never seemed to have any after effects whatsoever. He actually did the most crying for the oral vaccine, rotavirus! lol...
