have found place offering it (amazing). but can't get DD, 3, vaccinated before arrival of sibling. did anyone's child have a bad reaction to it? Can't face thought of DD having reaction while our nights are still in total chaos.
What about waiting a few extra months and taking your dd in for the vax when the new one has settled into a sleep routine, assuming that's feasible around say 3 or 4 months old. (of course there are no guarantees on when they sleep through the night, but I recal the midwife telling me most babies sleep through the night between 8 and 12 weeks).
I think CD is probably right. My DD also has never suffered a bad reaction. But, I think that measels is supposed to be the bad one. So if she was okay with that one, I would expect her to be okay with mumps, too. Of course I am in no way qualified to give any kind of medical advice. You could ring the e-med mmr clinic and ask them what to expect in terms of likely reaction. Don't know the number off hand, but I think it's on their website in the mmr booking section.
