DD got her shots today, (2 in each thigh)
I was getting her bath stuff ready when a friend noticed she felt kind of warm on her forehead and she's been sleep since we had brought her home.
She said she thinks her legs are sore because she is keeping them up when you hold her and she said she tried to bring them down and she cried.
Should i bath her or just allow her to sleep?

if she's sleeping I'd let her sleep.

just give her a little wipe down with a cloth if you don't want to bathe her. If she didn't play much today, and didn't get sweaty or anything the don't. But a cooler bathe might make her feel better if she is a little warm.

She's only 2 months so, she doesn't really get up and play, if thats how you meant it.

water relaxes the muscles so I'd bathe her!

i bathed my DS when he got his first shots because his legs were sore and red, and the bath calmed him down and reduced the redness and he could stretch them out and move them freely then. so id give them a bath after every shot because it relaxes them

They didn't give her a small dosage of Tylenol? I can't remember if at 2 months my son was given Tylenol or not......



Poor thing........... :(
