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!
