vaccine

My 7 week old is scheduled for his 2 month vaccinations next week and I am already dreading it  His doctor recommended bringing infant Tylenol with us to give him after the shots.  I know that some people give Tylenol before the shots.  I was wondering what you all did and what you would recommend.

thanks

One thing you want to make sure: that they dry the alcohol they use to clean the spot where they're going to inject the vaccine. I am sure that's why Benoit cried for 10 minutes last time.

Liam had his vaccines last week. 1 oral and 3 shots in the leg.  I gave him infant ibuprofin after his shots. I probably would have done it before if I'd thought of it. He had a poor appetite and a slight fever for about 24 hours.
