Hey my little guy had his last Wednesday. My experience was that he was sleepy for days after.....unusual for him. His night sleep pattern was disturbed....instead of sleeping through, been waking about 4am and wanting cuddles and to getting bed with me despite me getting him back to sleep and laying him down repeatedly. I think he was feeling a bit off, however he was lucky not to run a temperature as I know that is a common side effect. He's just getting back to his normal self now :-) x

My LO has been completely normal after each set. Think this is because we went out and bought calpol before hand in prep! I'm sure if we hadn't, he would have had a temp, the works!!

My LO has his Friday too and have Calpol at the ready although a friend of mine said Ibuprofen is better in her experience although I think you cannot use this until 3+ months. (That was just me seeing it in Boots catalogue earlier today...I might be wrong).

Hope he'll be ok X

Hi, my wee 1 was a bit off after 1st jabs n screamed place down wat I found good was I took a bottle with me and as soon as had jabs I fed her which help to calm her down, as for calpol I wouldn't give it before hand as it masks if they going to get temp which u need to no, my health visitor asks if u have given them any n won't give jab if they have had it also at 2 months they r only allowed 2 doses in total so may need it in next few days hope he ok bless them

Hiya, not much help but I hope it gives you hope my LO was absolutely fine and didn't cry for long at all. He loved the rotavirus drops too and the nurse was lovely. We didn't have any side effects either but did have calpol on standby! Hope it goes well x
