Today we go for her rotavirus vaccine.

It is supposed to be given with the DTaP at 8 weeks, but being new parents and particularly neurotic we are only doing one shot at a time. Note: there are risks to not following the American Academy of Pediatrics schedule also. Too many choices as a parent. A cactus is easier to raise, but doesn't smile.

We give her a dose of infant Tylenol about a half hour before the shot. My mom told me this trick and I confirmed that it was ok with the pediatrician.

So far she has not had a bad reaction to anything, so lets hope our lucky streak continues... update later.
