4Month Old Shots Side Affects

I've called the doctor but wanted to see if any of you had had this problem or have advice. We took my 4 month old to get her shots friday and for the rest of the weekend, everytime we feed her she would throw it back up. she was healthy when we went to the doctor so the only thing we could figure was the shots. Has anyone had any trouble with their 4month shots?

What can I do next?

I never had that kind of trouble with shots, we always had a low grade fever a day or 2 after the shots. My guess is that she's picked up something between the Drs office and home.
Is she eating anything new? or if she's bf are you eating anything new?

As a mom to a child who nearly died from a vaccine reaction who the Dr's said was just coincidence I don't believe that drs with all their monetary kick backs from big pharm are all that honest with us anymore. I love this site as well as some listed below me http://www.whale.to/ also this is the web address to the national vaccine info center http://www.nvic.org and http://childhoodshots.com it may be worth the drive to the charleston area to hear mary speak!

its all about gut you know your child and if you think they are related they probably are. 9 years ago i wish i had listened to my own gut when I thought something was wrong and not listend to the dr who said it was coincidence. It would have saved a subsequent ambulance ride (after the first reaction) and frequent ER visits after that.

Having had 3 children since then who have not been vaccinated i am STILL amazed at the difference developmentally from unvaxed and the selectively/delayed vaxed to the strict scheduled vaxed kids

It could be coincidence. However the Dr.s are extremely unlikely to admit connection whether they believe it is or not. Here are some links that may help you figure out if you are dealing with vaccine side effects. There is also the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System where you can report your experiences, I think parents can do it as well as the dr.s http://vaers.hhs.gov/

National Vaccine Information Center: www.909shot.com

Think Twice Global Vaccine Institute:
www.thinktwice.com

Institute for Vaccine Safety: www.vaccinesafety.edu

This is just the tip of the iceberg of information. There is also a google video that is a wealth of information; Vaccination: The Hidden Truth

Here is a link, I don't know how well it will cut and paste, but you can go to google video and search.

Good luck and I hope your little one is well soon!

I've never had that problem, but I have had my child get sick just from being at the Dr.'s office-- we've gone for an appointment for my older child, and the baby is the one who comes home sick! I think it's just a germy place, and your kids are more likely to get sick if they're usually at home (instead of daycare, where they might be exposed to more and be immune). I'm home with mine, but we try to get out a lot to make sure they're exposed to things, but still, they've both caught colds right after a Dr. visit, so I'm guessing it's just all the germs there.

Hi A.,

My daughter didn't have any trouble with her 4 month shots and is getting ready for her 6 month shots soon. (We always pre-medicate with tylenol so it won't be painful.) Throwing up is not a side effect of the vaccinations. Was anyone else sick in the house? Has she been around any other sick kids? Was she near any sick kids while you were waiting at the pediatricians to be seen? We don't really have much of a separation between the sick and well kids at my pediatricians. I'd call your pediatrician so you can get some reassurance. This is very unlikely to be from her vaccinations (especially if she had her 2 month shots without any problems). Vaccinations are really important for your child's health so talk to your pediatrician. If anything, he or she can go through more specifically what symptoms are usually associated with the shots. It will also probably make you feel better. I hope your daughter is feeling better now. It's not nice to have your little one sick for any length of time.

Either the two are unrelated or your baby is having a reaction to the RV part of the vaccine. Not to worry, though. While it's not-too-common, it's not serious. Just do the BRAT diet and keep her hydrated.

I would call the pediatrician anyway -- just to keep them "in the know".
