My six month old got his vaccines Friday. When the nurse administered the vaccine some of the liquid came out after she took the needle out of my baby's leg. I was wondering if that was normal. Also now he has a huge knot under the injection sight. I was also wondering if that is normal. Thanks in advance for answers :)
I always hate when my kids have to get vaccinations- I always feel so bad for them! What you have described is totally normal. Some liquid always seeps out a little from the injection site right after the shot and it is very normal for your baby to have a lump at the injection site. I find that giving Tylenol or Motrin for a few days after the vaccines makes a big difference (if I know they are going to get shots at their appointment, I sometimes give a dose of Tylenol before we go). The lump should start to get smaller over the next day or so. Hope this helps.
