We Survived Our Two Month Shots

Keelan got his two month check-up and first round of shots this week and it went a lot better than I thought. I read a ton of horror stories first, so I was prepared for the worse. As a side note, I keep accidentally typing shits instead of shots. Gives the post a whole new meaning…

He got three shots and a oral med. the needles were freakin huge! And this is from someone very used to needles. Two in one leg and one on the other. He turned beet red and screamed and cried. Right after I immediately swaddled and cuddled until he was soothed and then gave him a bottle. He was asleep by the time we got in the car. 

No fever but he woke later crying and was a little fussy. He slept most of the day. Overall he took it really well and was back to normal the next day. 

And he is now 10 lbs 2 oz and 23″ long!

  1. haha …shits. sweet boy xo Maeve gets her first shots on Tuesday. thanks for this post. I’m more anxious than i thought i would be about it. i hope she does as well. we planned terribly haha and she gets her shots then we go camping for 3 days. i have already looked up the closest clinics and hospital hahaha. oh geez.

    • I was super anxious! I kept checking him to make sure he was breathing the rest of the day. Totally paranoid of some weird reaction. He was just a mildly more cranky and tired version of himself 🙂 ( the Internet would have me to believe he was going to spend the day screaming his head off. Thank god that was not the case!)
