Hi. You may give crocin in case baby has fever. 1. 5ml every 6 hours is general dosage but do check your baby s weight and give accordingly. As suggested by fellow mothers, ice pack is good in case of pain or swollen thigh.

This remains the scenario of every baby after vaccination... all u need to do is to be patient for 2-3 days.. Slowly the baby would be back to normal routine.. My doctor had suggested calpol drops .. Breastfeed ur child as much as u can...

Hi! DPT does bring in fever, swollen leg and a cranky baby. Try not touch the injected area. You can give your baby ice pack. It helps in bringing down swelling and thus eases pain. Gently move the baby's limbs so that blood starts circulating in the injected leg. Your baby will be fine in 2-3 days. Take care!

This is very normal.. Baby will be alright within 2-3 days.. Try to breastfeed frequently and don't allow them to cry for a longer period..

This happens after vaccination she will be fine in one or two days. Try to breast feed her frequently.
