Patrick had the shots over the fall/winter months every 28 days during his first year. A nurse came to our house and would weigh him and take his vitals, mix the medication and give him the shot. It was nice that we didn't have to go into the drs office for it. He never had any adverse reactions to it. He disliked my sister for awhile because she looked a little like his nurse, but they both got over it[:)]

Wyatt just got his first dose of the synagis on the 7th and he didnt have any bad reactions far as i know.. ju his leg was a little sore for a day or 2 and he really disliked being held down, which he doesnt like for anything at all.

But now we are going thru some croup... as my DD caught it at school and we are pretty sure that DS is coming down with it tonite.. as far as the cough of it anyways and the temp too. But this wasnt related to his shots.

I get nervouse with all vaxx's.
We do them,(some delayed) but often with a heavy heart and our fingers crossed.
I just hate hearing the horror stories.
Luckily we've never had any reactions.
Bella has synegis for 5 months.
The following RSV season she did not.
We have been fine.
Lina didn't meet the requirements, and stays well, thank goodness!
Glad to hear it went well w/ ds.
