Ok ladies,

Out with it. DS (14.5mnths) had his MMR jab on Monday. What can I expect and for how long?

His sleep was very disrupted last night but not sure whether this was due to teething? Took 2.5hrs to go to sleep and woke up crying very 2hrs.

Had the GP check his ears today (as he had an ear infection for two wks) and they seem fine.

Could this be teething or the MMR jab? Have hear some nightmare stories about sleep disruption, bizarre behaviour, etc.

my dd and ds both got a reaction about a week after the jab, a bit like they were getting a bug, slight temp, whingey in the daytime and a bit wakeful in the night but nothing major to be honest, and it was quickly eased by calpol. Lasted about 2-3 days HTH

small red bump, no temp. sorry to disappoint.

Prettybird Wed 11-May-05 12:37:51

No noticeable reaction for any of ds'jabs.

triceratops Wed 11-May-05 12:39:07

didn't notice any reaction at all with ds.

happymerryberries Wed 11-May-05 12:39:16

No temp, no probelms, small raised mark with ds that went. Nothing at all with dd.

All plain sailing - she had a little rash after about a week but it didn't seem to bother her

Same as Elibelly

ds was fine. dd had heavy cold symptoms, feint rash, temperature, poor sleep within 48 hours fo it. This eased off within a week but then she also had infected eczema/cradle cap which was probably unrelated but may have caused her sleep problems rather than the jab itself. Both were fine with boosters.

Gosh, that was quick. So far so good. Like these types of answers.

DS was a bit grumpy for 24 hours and had a couple of doses of calpol... DD took it in her stride and showed no ill effects...

SoupDragon Wed 11-May-05 12:51:48

Um, both DSs were absolutely fine. no reactions whatsoever.

compo Wed 11-May-05 12:53:38

no reaction here either

muminlondon Wed 11-May-05 13:05:47

bit grumpy the day after. Otherwise fine.

Tinker Wed 11-May-05 13:12:32

Small red bump about 7 to 10 days later, bit grumpy but, otherwise, fine.

snafu Wed 11-May-05 13:14:09

Ds possibly a bit grumpy the day after - nothing more than that springs to mind.

Gwenick Wed 11-May-05 13:14:22

Nothing 'noticeable' to report here for either DS's.

No reaction at all from either of my DSs, nor to any other jabs - possibly a reddish bit on the arm, but I can't remember which jab this was for now.

CADS Thu 12-May-05 19:10:10

Thanks for replying everyone. We have had too bad nights now which I guess I can only put down to teething.

Does anyone else find that their dcs are only grizzly in the afternoon/evening and don't sleep well, when they teething.

Fingers crossed things will better tonight.

Mine didn't react at all, either.
