Baby crying after 2 month vaccinations

Baby crying after 2 month vaccinations
It’s common for babies to cry or be fussy after receiving their 2-month vaccinations. 
The injections can be uncomfortable and cause some pain or soreness at the injection site, leading to fussiness or crying. Additionally, some babies may experience a mild fever, which can also cause them to be fussy.

To help comfort your baby after their vaccinations, you can try the following:

  1. Offer a comforting touch: Hold your baby close, talk to them, and offer gentle reassurance. Skin-to-skin contact can also be comforting for infants.

  2. Use a cold compress: If your baby has pain or swelling at the injection site, you can use a cold compress to help reduce discomfort. Use a damp cloth or a cold gel pack wrapped in a towel and apply it to the injection site for a few minutes at a time.

  3. Give infant pain relief medication: If your baby is experiencing discomfort or has a fever, you can give them infant pain relief medication such as infant acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil). Always follow the dosage instructions on the label or as directed by your healthcare provider.

  4. Offer plenty of fluids: Make sure your baby is getting enough fluids to stay hydrated, especially if they have a fever. If you are breastfeeding, offer your baby the breast more frequently. If your baby is formula-fed, offer them extra formula or water between feeds.

  5. Be patient: Remember that your baby’s fussiness and crying is a normal reaction to the vaccinations and should subside within a few days. Be patient and offer comfort as needed.
