My 10 mo old DS has had 2 vaxes (dtap at 4mos & 6mos) and we are holding off on doing any more for now. But I was thinking back to his 4mo shot and started wondering if what I saw was a reaction to the shot.
He had the shot, squeaked but didn't cry (and believe me, this kid is a BIG crier, so that alone shocked me!) We checked out/paid for the visit & then brought him out to the car. When we got to the car he had the most vacant stare in his eyes. He looked like all the life had been sucked out of him. My heart sank but at the time I figured he was just tired -- but I haven't really seen him have that kind of expression ever again. He slept a lot when we got home but was back to his normal self pretty quickly.
I didn't notice any reaction at all to the second shot at 6mos (I think he was extra fussy the next day or maybe a little sick or something but I only vaguely remember)...
What do you think, am I over-reacting or did he have some kind of weird brief reaction to the first shot?
Co-sleeping is really wonderful when your child actually SLEEPS!!
