Good morning doctor, pls should a baby of 10weeks take paracetamol after immunization? Thanks.
Dr Aina Johnson


Yes it is okay for a baby to take paracetamol to soothe his pain or calm fever after immunisation. The paracetamol should be given immediately AFTER the immunisation especially if s/he develops a fever.... So give one dose first AFTER the vaccination and if no subsequent fever, you can stop.

The quantity of milk to be taken depends on the babies weight. Babies require approximately 100ml per kg per day. So check your babies weight, then express about 100ml for each kg everyday. Then divide the total quantity expressed into portions to be fed every 3hours.

Babies on EBF do not need to poo daily, they can stay up to 2weeks without having to poo. Sometimes, they can even poo up to 12 times in a day. As long as the stools are normal. There's nothing to worry about.

Regarding the mucus in stool, there is no need to worry.... Just continue exclusive breastfeeding. Kindly pay attention to your own diet and avoid herbal remedies or drugs that are not prescribed by the doctors which may pass via the breast milk to affect the baby. Avoid heavy spicy or flavoured foods, as well as some, also affect the baby when passed via the breast milk to the baby! If MUCUS persists in the stools kindly see a Paediatrician for thorough evaluation and management!"

Hello ma'am Fever is a common side effects of immunisation. Give paracetamol every 6 - 8 hours for the 2-3 days . With respect to the poo, as long as the poo is normal and doesn't sink completely into the diaper then there is nothing to worry about. Also, make sure you are checking the temperature of your baby using a thermometer. All the best
