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

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.

A breastfeeding mom needs to eat well nourishing balanced diet. She should only avoid foods and spices that make her baby fussy or show allergic reactions. So if plantain make your baby fussy or show allergic reaction, then avoid it but if it does not you can go ahead and have it. The only thing she needs to clearly avoid is taking unprescribed medication.
