How long can baby be unsettled after immunisation
It is common for babies to be unsettled or fussy after immunization. 
The duration of these symptoms can vary from baby to baby, but they usually resolve within a few days.
 Some babies may have only mild symptoms, while others may experience more significant discomfort.

If your baby is experiencing these symptoms, there are several things you can do to help them feel more comfortable:

  1. Give your baby plenty of cuddles and comfort: Holding your baby close, talking to them in a soothing voice, and offering plenty of cuddles can help to comfort them and make them feel secure.

  2. Offer your baby extra feeds: If your baby is fussy or irritable, offering them extra feeds of breast milk or formula can help to soothe and calm them.

  3. Use a cold compress: Placing a cool, damp cloth on the injection site can help to ease any pain or swelling.

  4. Give infant pain relief medication: If your baby seems to be in pain or discomfort, you can give them infant pain relief medication such as infant acetaminophen (Tylenol). Always follow the dosage instructions on the label or as directed by your healthcare provider.

  5. Monitor your baby’s behavior: Pay attention to any changes in your baby’s behavior or any other symptoms that may indicate a more serious reaction to the vaccines. If you have any concerns, contact your healthcare provider.
