immunizations and fever

My 7th month old just had his shots today and is now running a fever. I know that this is normal but I was just wondering about how high before calling the doctor?

Re: immunizations and fever

fever is normal and it's not necessary to call the doctor unless he's showing other signs of an alergic reaction or the fever is high and doesn't go down when you give tylenol or advil. With my kids i always found that withing 12-24 hours the fever was gone untill then i gave tylenol to make sure they were comfortable. But fever is completly normal, but like i said if he is showing any other signs of a bad reaction (unlikely since alergic reactions generaly show up within the first hour or so of getting the injection) than i wouldn't worry.

Re: immunizations and fever

well his fever is gone but he is extremely fussy (very unlike him) The only thing right now that will make him happy is if we hold and walk with him for hours. He hasn't been taking his bottles, (only about an oz. at a time) and he won't eat that much. I think alot of this is due to teething also. I've given him tylenol, gas drops(just in case) and have put baby orajel on his gums but nothing works. Poor thing, I really hope he gets better soon. I miss my smiley baby. Does anyone elses baby get where thats all they want is to be walked around ?

LOL..be thankful that there is something that calms him down. Austin gets like that and to this day when he gets EXTREMELY fussy the onlything that calms him down is cuddling him close to you and singing a funny song to him. LOL and then he forgets that he is upset and starts laughing.
