Fever, pain, redness, allergies, and localized edemas are just some of the most common reactions that can happen in the 48 hours after a vaccine.

Communicate it to the pediatrician immediately if the symptoms persist for longer. Your health care provider will guide you on whether to medicate your child or take on special care.

Some experts recommend using fever reducers even before taking the vaccine, so don’t hesitate to consult your doctor about it. Remember, each case is different.


Typically, the vast majority of babies will cry and become irritated after a vaccine. To soothe discomfort, breastfeeding can be a comfortable alternative.

However, it’s worth noting that some children can lose their appetite for one or two days following immunizations. Excessive sleepiness is also a common symptom.

Keep your child wrapped around a blanket, simulating the feeling they had inside the uterus. I could help a lot. But be careful! Do not apply pressure to the area that was just vaccinated.

Swaying them smoothly in your arms can also calm and make the child feel comfortable.
