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

Paediatrician

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.
pls my sister inlaw daughter don't use to sleep all night, she is just 41days
Sleep when baby sleeps and be awake when he's awake... Follow his pattern first then he will adapt to yours after a few weeks. That is what using my Mummy's word is called being an "Abiyamo".... Being a mother is synonymous with regular night or if you like baby vigils. Welcome to motherhood

My baby took vaccination yesterday, she is one month and two weeks, it's like her tongue is on fire, her mouth is hot
The 6, 10 and 14 weeks shot's main side effect is fever. You can give the paracetamol every 6 hours for 2 -3 days. However, make sure you are given the right dose based on your baby's weight. From experience, most mums who got immunization at health centres usually just give one size fit all dose of paracetamol which is often not the adequate dose for their babies after the immunization. This also contributes to the persistence of the fever. To be sure of the right dose, ask your doctor or pharmacist

My baby is 8months old but hasn't brought out any teeth hope nothing is wrong, please?
Your baby is teething when his or her first set of teeth, called primary teeth break through the gums. When does teething typically start? Teething usually begins around 6 months of age. But it is normal for teething to start at any time between 3 months and 12 months of age. By the time your child is about 3 years old, he or she will have all 20 primary teeth. The lower front teeth usually come in first. Upper front teeth usually come in 1 to 2 months after the lower front teeth.
