Mummies, when your precious took the above mentioned jab, did they get a fever after that?
depends on your baby, but most baby might feel abit warm after the jab.
doc will prescribe fever med, if it doesnt go til very high, shld be ok n will subside after 1-2 days.
as for pin, her temp was a bit higher than usual but no fever.
alot ppl told me to give baby the medi right after the injection to 'prevent' fever coming up...
my dear daughter had fever both times after her jabs. quite normql as long as not very high (like more than 38.5) for too many days.
fever should subside quite quickly, after 1 or 2 days. i just gave her baby panadol syrup given by the pediatrician
mother in law ask to feed pao-shen with water (a little) before the jab.. Baby is only 6 wks old.. dont know if i should do that... Anyone fed?
yup, tats what i did. but dont really remember is 'pao shen' powder or 'yang shen' ald. Baby might reject the powder if mix in water due to the taste. you can add into the milk.
My son didnt have fever when he went for his 1st jab... but at night before he went to bed I was scared he might develop fever and we adults would sleep like logs (cos my son already sleeps through the night at about 2mos old).. so I gave him 1 dose of the panadol syrup to prevent...
The next morning he woke up still chirpy as ever.. no fever nothing. *touch wood* hehe
ya, it all depends on your baby, but normally after the jab pediatrician will definately prescribe fever med, in case baby fever after the jab n usually will subside after 1-2 days. So far for boy's jabs no fever except the recent Booster jab he has fever for 1.5 days.
yes my baby developed mild fever after 6in1 jab so we gave her the fever syrup from doc...only gave twice she was ok already...but when she took her 5in1 it was ok no fever at all
My dear daughter didn't get any fever on that day she went for the jab. But the next day,in the afternoon, her body quite heaty so we gave her the fever syrup the doc gave. But she was able to sleep thru the night without any fuss. She was ok the next morning.
anyway. if take the jab baby got fever, can dont give baby medicines that the doctors prescribe and see if the fever will go away by itself? since mummies here mentioned that fever usually last for the most two days.
But I will usually give her one dose before she sleeps if she's running a fever cos I'm worried that the fever will get worse in the night, and also because i want her (and myself) to have a good night's sleep.
I dont't have fever med with me now to feed baby prior to the jab... alamak!
ladies, how much does the 6-in-1 jab cost? my hubby said is $300+?
