    Emma slept through hers (weird kiddo I've got!) and then was super lethargic for the rest of the day. She was back to her regular self by the next day but I think her legs were a little sore at the injection sites. Good luck to you and baby Jack!

    Ha ha, I was just wondering the same thing too. Chloe has her injections on Monday and she is already misserable enough with the Reflux and now possible teething I really don't want something else to piss her off and make her sad over Xmas!

    My daughter got quite upset at the shots but then calmed down within 5 minutes. I nursed her immediately after and aside from being a bit fussier than usual and her legs being slightly swollen she was fine. I think it was more difficult for me than her! We go back on the 29th for her 4 month shots :(

    Elyse had infant Tylenol 30 minutes before her needles and she did fine. She did cry initially and it wasn't fun getting her ready to go home from the doctor's (putting pants on her, getting her in her car seat, etc) but she was fine at home. Slept normally or more, and ate normally.

    My LO slept a little more than usual that day and the next, but was otherwise fine. She was smiling again minutes after the injections. :)

    Hamish cried for about 10 seconds when the needles went in, then as soon as I got him back in his pram he nodded off and there were no other effects at all.

    My bub was really grouchy for 4 days after her 8 & 12 week jabs. Calpol didn;t seem to help at all either.

    Finley screamed when he had the injections but soon gave me a smile after. later in the day he was grouchy and sleepy. when he was awake he wanted to be held. next day he was fine but he did have bruises on his leg
