DD had four at birth, I was knocked out by a GA so I couldn't comment.
When she came up for her next set, I gave her calpol before IIRC. She wasn't bothered or didn't appear bothered.
I was never happy to take her [pfb] but know she needed them.

Temperature is a fairly common reaction, although I don't recall my dcs having it. Otoh DD had diarrhoea after them for about a week, apparently that can be a rare reaction to DTP.

In any case it shouldn't be anything that some Calpol and cuddles won't fix.

Mine were all different. Dd1 cried for about 2 minutes afterwards and no other reaction. Dd2 has a brief high temperature but was fine within 24 hours. Ds had a high temperature and went very unresponsive for about 3-4 days. I remember particularly he didn't smile for that length of time, and he was a very smiley baby. Shortly afterwards he had his first ear infection, and then had them pretty continuously until he had the first set of grommets at 20 months. I always wonder whether there was a connection.
