    Finlay has his first set of injections on Thurs (which am dreading!!) he will be b 8 weeks exactly and it say they can have calpol from two months.

    So my question is did you give your lo a dose of calpol before they went for there injections or am I better to wait and just see how he is after them.

    Thanks

    for the 8 week ones I waited to see what he was like afterwards. He was just fine and slept a lot with those. I did give him calpol afterwards just incase though, it looked a bit painful!

    I gave Tylenol to Hannah before and we ended up having to give it to her off and on for a couple of days after.....the shots really did a number on her unfortunately

    when chloe-marie had her first injections, she was a nightmare after crying so badly that i struggled to give her calpol. when she eventually took it tho she was fine. today she had her 2nd lot i gave her calpol 1 hour before and again 4 hours later she was fine, no crying or being naggy after.
