  1. DD got her 2nd needle Wednesday afternoon (I am spreading them out a bit) and at the injection site is a red mark and that area is hard. I know the redness is normal at first but is the hardness? how long should they both last?

    Thanks
     
  2. My DD had the same thing...it lasted for about 1.5 weeks and then went away. The redness went away in about 4-5 days...the hardness in 1.5 weeks. Hope she feels fine and doesn't get a fever!
     
  3. Yup, it's normal...don't worry. If baby is uncomfortable, they recommend putting a warm compress on it.
