    is that immunization, like measles, mumps, rubella (sp?)

    we just call it 2,4,6 month shots lol :D

    if thats what you are talking about tho, alexis for her 2 month ones it wasn't great, fever, crying, all the fun stuff

    her 4 and 6 month ones tho went great (well as good as needles can go anyways) just a bit of crying and then to sleep after

    if you give them infant tylenol, motrin, ect (not sure what it is over there) half hour before then it helps :D

    good luck hope it went ok :D

    Hiya, this one is slightly different to those i think, he had ones at 2,3 and 4 months but they were for diptheria,polio and tetnis.(i think!)
    The mmr (measles, mumps, rubella) is given when they are around 13 months old :)
    Thanks lexis-mummy, have got the calpol on stand just incase !

    Matthias didn`t have any reaction on the MMR - but he only got it once the second one is still overdue (first it was summer time and very hot, then we went on holiday, then he had a cold...).

    We have to get the 2. one within the next few weeks....

    My two had it done separate. Its cost a fortune but I was too scared to give them the MMR as my son has loads of allery problems and those kids and those with FH of allergies are at higher risk of developing probs after MMR. Daughter has got mumps left to have in Jan and son just needs mumps booster in about 2-3 yrs. Am interrested in how everyone gets on with new pneumonia vaccine. Alishas just too old I think to have it but bump will probably get, get someone at work said her lo reacted quite badly ( seems ok now), and she is now unsure if she'll give it to other lo.

    oooh so the mmr would be the one that dd would get at her 12 month shots?? :? not looking forward to that at all....

    what are your guys thought on the chicken pox vaccine?? i personally am not getting it for alexis because i read about if you don't get chicken pox as a child, you could contract it as and adult (shingles) and its 20 X worse :shock: so i would rather just get it over and done with kind of thing lol....never hurt me and i had it twice...thats what i think anyways...any of you getting it for your lo's??

    glad to here your lo did ok with his shots :D
