Not feeding after 8 week injections

Dd had her injections today, screamed during them obviously but seemed fine straight after.
I'd given her calpol beforehand as per instructions from the nurse and then topped up 4 hours later, however this dose came out really fast and dd was very distressed, it took ages to calm her down but eventually she fell asleep on me. She then awoke but was again really distressed and has fallen asleep again. I tried to offer her boob (ebf) but she didn't want it at all sad. She had a little bit earlier after the 2nd calpol but kept stopping to cry and wouldn't take anymore.
So she's not fed properly for about 6 hours, is this normal? I will check her temp in a mo when she's in a deep sleep but I'm mostly concerned about her not feeding.

My dd is ff, she went off her milk for about 24 hours after her jabs. I think it's normal with all the meds in their system to feel a bit out of sorts for a day or two. If your still getting wet nappies I wouldn't worry unless it continues after tomorrow too.

Thank you, she just had a little feed and is snoozing again now, phew! She's still miserable though! sad

I think this is normal too. My DD had her first jabs last week and didn't feed as well as she normally does. After about 24 hours she was back to feeding normally. Are you dreading the next lot of jabs? I am sad

Oh god I'm really dreading them! I wish they weren't so soon. It's awful watching them in pain, their poor little legs! sad

I think most gp practice use the same brand, here is one of the patient info leaflets that you should receive when you vax your child, one of the many common side effects is loss of appetite
