    I know what you mean - my LO has to have her 3rd set, was invited week before xmas but I had swine flu, then she had it and now I am still waiting for the cough, which is harmless, but lingers ages after to go before I can take her.
    I know she must but I still feel mean if they make her off colour after that swine flu x

    Ahhhhh. It is horrible. I was crying from the moment I sat down with the nurse. Awful. Give your little one calpol before you go. It will make it a bit easier for them. Marielle os having her second lot 1st of feb and I already have pain in my tummy from nerves when I think about it. Poor little babies.

    You're not meant to give pain relief before the imms, it has a negative effect on the way the body reacts to the immunisations (makes them less effective). If you breastfeed, do this immediately as it is a natural pain relief for babies and soothes them.
