Giving babiesTylenol before immunizations may Interfere with vaccine effects.
I was told by my doctor that breastfeeding before and after can help with the pain and fever following immunizations. A fever that sometimes follows immunizations, is the body's natural way of fighting infections and as long as it's low grade it should be aloud to run it's course. Giving Tylenol before and after can actually interfere with the immunizations. Autumn has been breastfeed before and after, swaddled and comforted and never ran a fever, and had one day of leg pain that I used a cold compress for. I believe that in extreme cases, Tylenol and iburprofen can help and you should always talk to your Dr If your child is having an adverse effect.
What do you moms think?
My daughter gets high fevers with every illness and every vaccine. High fevers over 103, so we often have to give her Tylenol. We always try natural fever reduction methods first but they never work for her. My other kids only got low grade fevers and rarely needed Tylenol.
I was also told NOT to nurse while the shots were happening, even for comfort because my kids would then associate nursing with pain.. Which is crap I think.. Cause I did right after the shots to soothe and during once and none of them had an issue after..
There's nothing in tylenol or IBU to interfere with a immunization.. totally different ballgame.. the shots go into the blood.. tylenol does not..
But sometimes Doctors can go off the deep end..
