My DD had her first lot of injections today at 2.30 pm. She had the Men B, And 2 others and the rotavirus drops. She screamed at the time but calmed soon after.
When I got her home I fed her and she fell asleep. About 6.15pm she woke up screaming!! It's totally not like her as she's normally such a happy baby. She cried for about an hour and a half solid, not interested in BF and would not be put down. She finally cried herself to sleep but is waking up screaming every half hour or so.
She's feeding normally but is very sleepy. She won't allow me to put her down and her leg that had the Men B seems to be hurting her. Every time she moves it she cries in pain. I've given her her 3 doses of calpol like the dr prescribed.
How can I help ease the pain in her leg? She really does not want me to touch it and I dread the next nappy change. Her temp is fine.
It's so horrible being unable to consol her.
Has anyone else experienced this after the jabs?
Really not looking forward to the next lot in 4 weeks.

She is much better today thank you MessyBun. She woke up about 1am smiling and kicking her legs. I was so relieved. We stayed up until 2am chattering away. She had a feed and slept until 8 this morning. I was just so glad she's herself today. She has been a bit hot today so she's been in her nappy most of the day. Going to check her temp before bed and if it still a little high, give her a little calpol for bed.

This happened with DS after the 8 week jabs. He was fine after the 12 and 16 week ones smile

Just remember how serious those illness are and it will put the discomfort into perspective. Glad she's feeling better smile, we sailed through our vacs but we did have a really traumatic blood test at 12 months (no skin numbing used what so ever) that really shook him for 24 hours, thankfully the next blood test went so smoothly he didn't even cry.

Glad she's feeling better smile

The 8 week jabs definitely affected my DD more than the 12 and 16 ones.
