Hi, dd has her 20 week jabs on Tuesday and I am dreading it. She wasnt too bad for the 8 and 12 week ones but the 16 weeks one really shook her up. Her sleeping and eating was all over the place and she was very miserable.
Is she going to worse again after the next ones? Any tips? We normally give her calpol which does settle her but I worry about the effects it has on her as she has it once or twice a day. Thanks.
did the docs say it was a 'normal' reaction, not allergic or anything like that? I think if a child is really ill, high pitched type screaming or has a seizure then more vaccinations are contra-indicated. You can always delay a month or so.
DS had his 16 wk jabs this week. he was OK after them, but, stupid mummy here didn't realise it was 3 injections this time (how I missed that I don't know) but the nurse told us that if there had been any reaction at all previously, we could split them up into a 2 and a 1 at a later date. Maybe something to ask about if DD didn't do well last time. Also,calpol is a Godsend. DS has medical condition and his meds have to be increased massively if he develops a temperature, so the Dr advised us to give Calpol beforehand to try and pre-empt it. DS has never had any problems, apart from screaming so much he was sick over me last time .
Yes, I will be back at work then so DP and I will share DSs numerous appointments. I will be damn sure to have something very important to do at work on the injection days - will gladly do everything else!
