This is a discussion on 5 In 1 Jab within the Newborn Baby and Infant Care (up to 12 months old) forum, part of the Growing Up & Parenting category; My dear son is 3 month old, just took his 5 in 1 jab in polyclinic yesterday. He has no fever ...
My dear son is 3 month old, just took his 5 in 1 jab in polyclinic yesterday. He has no fever yesterday but temp rise to 37.6 deg this morning around 10.30am. Has given him the medicine and subside to 37.1 deg. Also put on the gel patch on his forehead. Is it normal?
His stools also change to back brown (his is total B/F). Any mummy can advise on this? I'm worried
Hi Caden's Mummy,
Yup agree with snowbear that baby's tend to have fever after their jabs......but I read up that baby & toddlers normal body temp is usually about 37.5 degree, while for adults it is 36.5 degree.....that's why mozzies tend to like to bite babies
for my son, that time a colleague taught me that the day bf the jab, I give my son barley water to drink , can mix with milk. And it sort of worked, cos' my son got no fever after the jab or if you do not want then straight away after jab can give the fever med that the polyclinic give so that they do not develop fever.....
Thanks for all yr advise. can i kn whether he can sleep in a/con rm at 24deg?
my 2mth old just went for her 6in1 jab. temp rose to 36.9 degrees. Gees, she never sleep man, kept looking for my breast for comfort. Also must hug to sleep..
im so tired now..
about aircon, my pediatrician said can .... a while is fine
Can i know what kind of barley you gave your son before the jab? is it those normal barley buy from chinese medical shop and boil with water? how many time to give baby before the jab? dear daughter also going for her 6 in 1 jab soon, may want to give her barley water and hope that she won't got fever after the jab...
Hi there, just to share. my baby wient for her 6in1 jab. her temp rose from only 36.4 to 36.9 degrees. subsided by one day
what i did was to let her sleep on a "water mat". my sister bought me. it is a small little mat but the content is water so it is very cooling. i think it helps to cool her temp dpwn
