I don't get the whole paracetamol thing as well?!
The last time i was told "OK so we give her a dose of paracetamol just now, in 4-6 hours time give another then give her a third and final dose after that"
Then the last time I saw my health visitor(also my nurse who does the jabs) she said that I wouldn't need to do that this time around, I'll speak to her when I see her next time but I'm just confused lol what's different with this time?

I worry about my health a lot (since having a c section ive had health anxiety) so you can imagine how much I worry about my baby's health !
When my baby had her first set she was fine till the early hours in the morning she was a little sick during a feed, could of been she just drank too much ! But it set my anxiety off and that was me for 48 hours ,worried just waiting for something to happen... Nothing did!
I think far too much about stuff...

They have the meningitis vaccine in the first and third set but not the second (if I remember rightly). It is this vaccine which is particularly associated with a high fever so paracetamol is given prophylactically . My dd was perhaps a bit grumpy after them and had a slight temperature but was otherwise fine.

Exactly what NickyEds said - it's been found that the Men B vaccine is more likely to give a slight fever so you only need to give paracetamol after that one (8 weeks & 16 weeks)

My DS was completely fine after his 12 week jabs, no fever or anything. I've had friends who said their LO was a bit sleepier than usual for a day or so.

My DS was fine too. The nurse said to give her paracetamol only if she needs it but she was completely fine. She said the same thing on thevtird one. She was a bit clingy and warm towards evening so I gave her some before bef

2nd lot doesn't have men B, we too were told calpol not needed, and true enough he was fine

First lot were a nightmare. She barely noticed the second, after the initial crying stopped.

It is the men b that gives the fever, which they don't have in the second batch, hence no calpol etc needed.

Hope your little one sails through it!
