Make sure you have some Calpol in. Your lo could be grumpy afterwards cos of pain/fever.
Lots of cuddles as well helps!
He may be grizzly for a few days afterwards as the vaccination goes thru his system. My lo was fine though. The only jabs she reacted to were her 12 weeks ones (she had an upset tummy afterwards).
He may also get a lump where the needle went in.
If you notice anything untowards though afterwards ring your gp.

Hiya, I was advised by my hv to give calpol a couple of hours before so it is already in their system when they have the jab.My Lo was just sleepy afterwards. If you are bf get ready to latch on straight after the injection as this is a great way to calm them down if they cry. On the second injections my LO didnt even wince...Putting on a brave face like his dad!

Abi had hers on Tue and was fine, maybe just a bit sleepier than usual. My HV advised to give calpol an hr or so before then again before putting her to bed.

New to the group, hello!
Hi I just wanted to introduce myself and say hi. I'm new to this group, but not new to ttc. I've got children to my ex, but my husband and I are ttc our first baby together. I hope it's ok that I will be posting with lots of questions as it's been a long time since I was ttc (9 years, eek!!) so I've forgotten a lot of things. Babydust to all!! 😊 x
