we are a bit behind schedule on our well baby/ shot schedule because the first doctor ethan had was an idiot and scheduled his shots a month late... so everything has been a month behind.



he is going for his 9 month well baby visit tomorrow (even though he is 10 months), will he be getting shots? i can't remember if they said yes or no, and if so, i want to give him some tylenol before we go.

4444 got shots at 1 month, 2, 4, 6, 9, and was supposed to get them at 12 but we switched docs and they didn't have any of the shots he was supposed to get :roll: but it was fine because I wasn't sure that I wanted him getting shots. I wanted to do a delayed schedule at that point.

I suppose it wouldn't hurt to give him tylenol beforehand anyway, just in case... or you could call.



Or do that

Nicholas got shots at 2,4,6 and 12. At 9 months they just did a lead test. But my friends son got shots at 9 months and the lead test. His pedi does a delayed schedule for all his patients so they get shots every 3 months until they are all given.
