How can I help my baby after injection?
After your baby receives a vaccination, you can help them feel more comfortable by following these tips:
  1. Hold and comfort your baby: Holding and cuddling your baby can help them feel more secure and comforted after their vaccinations.

  2. Apply a cool compress: If your baby has swelling or discomfort at the injection site, you can apply a cool compress to help reduce pain and swelling. You can use a cool washcloth or a cold pack wrapped in a towel.

  3. Give your baby infant pain relief medication: If your baby is experiencing discomfort or has a fever after their vaccinations, you can give them infant pain relief medication such as infant acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil) to help reduce pain and fever. 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. Monitor your baby’s symptoms: Keep an eye on your baby’s symptoms and report any concerns to your healthcare provider. While mild symptoms are common after vaccinations, some babies may experience more severe or persistent side effects that require medical attention.
