yes, pd told me before.

yes it's normal for it to swell a little. use a hot compression to calm that area down. If baby seem extremly cranky when that swollen area is touched, please bring back to the clinic.

Hi it is normal for the injection area to be slightly swollen although my baby has never really got a swollen patch but the nurses tell me it happens. Use a cold compress over the sore area. Is he cranky from the injection or look like he is in pain or having fever? If he is not I will say monitor and the swelling should go down in a few days time

Normal. Next time try to warm compress the injection area after taking out the plaster with cotton wool and warm water.
