Happy 2 months!

Let's start this by saying that Paisley gives her 2 month shots a HUGE thumbs-down.  She woke up in a beautiful mood this morning and did her usual smile at mama and snuggle.  I got up to pump before my breasts sprung a leak and let her cuddle with her dad for a while.  Then we went to the pediatrician's office...

Which is when it all went to crap.  She didn't notice the 1st shot, but screamed for the next 2.  I've apparently never actually heard her really cry.  But she did it today.  And I was relieved when she calmed down a minute later and quickly fell asleep for 3 hours.  Seemed like we had it easy.  Until she woke up.  REALLY angry.  She screamed for a long time, until we gave her a warm bath and some tylenol.  Then she and I took a nap together.  She's now awake again and really cranky.

The pediatrician suggests not giving tylenol unless necessary.  I'm calling this necessary!  And it's heartbreaking to see her so sad.  I just want to fix it and make her my happy baby again!!!  In other doctor's office news, she weighs 10 pounds, 2 ounces and was almost 23 inches long.  She said everything looks great.

Anyways, I'm off to attempt to calm my fussy little angel and give her dad a break!


  1. Ugh, it was awful wasn't it??? Same with Sofia, she didn't notice the first one and then cried with the other two. She recovered really quickly though and we gave her Tylenol every 4 hours for the next 24 hours and she seems alright now. What's it going to be like when they get really sick or break a bone or something? I'm
    Not sure I can handle it!

  2. Aww poor paisley :( Hope she's happy again soon! Shots stink! Especially on tiny lil babies Im sure :(

  3. My doctor suggests giving Tylenol an hour before the shots then as needed afterwards. I rarely have to give Emma tylenol afterwards. I don't think we've had to experience much post-vaccine crankiness either.

  4. Aren't those shots crazy?! I am so glad that my DH will be able to go to her 4 month appointment with us when she has to get more. Our Dr. wants us to give her t.ylenol ahead of time.

  5. Poor thing! I hope she manages to sleep it off and feels better by tomorrow.

  6. I am with you, Amber! Wade got his shots on Tuesday and was not a big fan either! Hopefully she feels better soon!

  7. I think the pain/crankiness post shots was way worse than the shots themselves! I gave E 3 total doses of Tylenol (I felt very necessary), and when she woke up from her 2nd nap, she was much improved. Total sadness!

  8. Poor little girl! I hope she feels better soon!
