    I am no expert but any reaction is likely to be mild and occur within 24-48 hours. I have only ever heard of babies getting mild fevers, becoming whingy or sleeping more than normal. They will give you info on possible side effects when you go in (well they usually do). I can't really remember DS1 I don't think he reacted at least not noticeably. He was always whingy so wouldn't have known any different!

    My two girls have reacted just a few hours afterwards. So for example, yesterday my four month old dd2 had her vaccinations at 11am and woke up from her nap at 2:30pm screaming. Lasted about 45 minutes until panadol kicked in. Then she fell asleep again pretty quickly, and was cranky for the rest of the day. Had a temp overnight. She's fine today though. Now I've seen her react like this I'll give her panadol a short time after her next vaccinations to prevent the screaming again. Funnily enough my DS never reacted to vaccinations, just my girls.

    Baby panadol. I'm pretty sure you can give it from 4 weeks whereas baby nurofen is from 3 months. Good luck, I'm sure everything will be fine.

    Just an old lady tip but don't dose before a vax because it can mask a reaction.
    If they do have a fever/pain, then paracetamol is the way to go. Just ask your pharmacist.

    thanks. yeah definitely not planning to dose before the vax.

    I feel really anxious about it. like I know what's in store for him and he doesn't and it's upsetting me that he'll be upset and crying. I wish dh was coming with me.

    I am over it tonight. Toddler meltdowns then covered in baby vomit (I swear she threw up her entire stomach contents) and cleaning up me, her, the bed (need to wash sheets tomorrow) and still no sleep.

    I close my eyes and in my half sleep I am having weird dreams. Freaks me out! As the *could* be happening or could be a dream.

    I am now going to *try* to finally sleep.

    I empathise so much, especially with having your DH as the stabiliser/comforter but he might not get that upset. I sent myself into a mega spin about my third getting his four year old needles and made DH come with me for the first time and the boy didn't even make a sound! Don't over think it - you're his world at this point and you will be there - if he cries, you'll make it better.

    None of my 4 have cried during needles (apart from the 4 yo ones - then that really turned on the water works!).

    Try not to stress. Even if he does cry it's over so quickly. The first ones are hard but it will get easier.

    I am pretty sure DS2 has some sort of internal clock that makes him not only awake but fully wired at 2am every night. I don't think there is a 2am I haven't seen since he we born.

    2am sucks.
