6 Month SHOTS

This afternoon Cami had her 6 month well visit appointment. As you can see from the photo above, it included 3 shots in her legs (2 in the left leg and one in the right leg) and an oral vaccine as well. Cami did NOT like the shots, although I've never met a baby that did enjoy them. She screamed bloody murder for about 15 minutes and then immediately passed out once we got her in the car. We came home and she took some Tylenol and seemed to be back to her old self.

It wasn't until it was time for bed that the Tylenol stopped working and Cami seemed in pain again. She was doing this pathetic cry/whine. It really wasn't a cry. It was definitely more of a whine, but it was a really pathetic whine with a curved in lip as if to say, "Mom, my legs hurt". Don't worry - it was nothing a little snuggling couldn't take care of. After a bottle and lots of snuggling she fell FAST asleep. We are hoping tomorrow she will be back to her normal self and these shots will be behind us...at least until we have to go back in another month for her second round of 6 month shots since there were too many to do at once. YIKES!!!

**Hey - let's look on the bright side though. At least we now know that Cami isn't allergic to eggs. She received the first dose of the H1N1 shot today and they made us stay at the Pediatrician for 15 minutes after the shot to observe Cami since the shot has eggs in it (preservatives I think??) and obviously we have never given Cami eggs. She passed with FLYING colors and that's one less food allergy we have to worry about!**
