Yesterday, my son got his shots.. He has RSV and has been fussy once so far. Well yesterday and today hes been soooo fussy. He will not let me put him down or let anyone else hold him. Its like theres a new Elliott in the house. I don't know what to do. He's been running a fever since last night. I hate seeing him like this and I would love to just sit and hold him, but I have cleaning to do and I still have to eat. He wants to sleep but hes been fighting it so bad. Any ideas as to whats wrong with him? They need to start coming with instructions or a screen that says why they're crying =(

He is sick and miserable. The house can wait they only need mommy cuddles for so long.

He's probably miserable from the mix of shots and RSV, poor baby. :( Just keep giving him cuddles, and if he's still running fever give him a dose of Tylenol.

I hate seeing him like this. But I also hate a dirty house. My poor baby boy.

You will never meet a mom who says I wish I would of put the baby down so I could of cleaned more. Do what you can try wearing him if you have a carrier. It should pass in a few days until then try not to stress about the house. He needs his mommy. Im actually kinda shocked they gave shots while he had RSV.

I was too. But my friend thought they one postpone it if they had a fever. I need a new carrier, I'm just gonna sit and hold him. He just fell asleep

They vaccinated him while he was sick? That's clearly contraindicated in the product insert. I hope he's ok. Bad vaccine reactions are much more common than we're led to believe (in fact, legislators acknowledged vaccines as unavoidably unsafe when they created the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program). Poor guy. The cleaning can wait.
