  • I just called to make Shelby's 4 mo appt (the 17th). They got her in no problem and I asked if she was going to be getting any shots and the girl said she would get a repeat of the ones she got at 2 mo! Those were awful! I think they poked her 3 or 4 times plus she got the oral vaccine which wasn't a big deal but the way she reacted to the shots was so awful. She cried for a good 10 min and I was crying too.
    The boys never reacted that way and I never reacted that way to them getting shots so now I am dreading taking her for her appt next week.
    I am going to beg DH to take her.

    Oh.. poor baby.. the 2 month visit was terrible..
    Why must they torture these kids like that.. why not spread them out a bit ??

  • I'm so sorry you both had such a hard time with the shots. I will pray that your DH will take her and she won't mind as much. Noah actually did ALOT better with the second round of shots at 4 mths so hopefully you experience the same thing.

  • I spread L's 2 mo ones out-- so she only had 2... but it was awful enough with just the 2.... then she had 3 at 4mos- but tolerated them much better-- although she did get a fever this time.... we're going in next week to catch up with 3 more...

  • Avery did so much better at her 4 month shots... she did run a low grade temp but that was when we were discovering the acid reflux as well so I'm not sure what to blame it on...

    to mommy and baby!
