    morning all!
    little ali had his first set of vaccinations on Wednesday...on Wednesday he seemed fine, took his bottle and slept a lot. howevever, yesterday and today he is hardly eating and has been sick a couple of times (ali isn't a sickly baby, i can count on one hand how many times he has been sick since he has been born):cry:. he is also really weepy.

    i am really worried about him as he was a low birth weight baby and i am desperate for him to continue gaining weight.

    is loss of appetite common? will it pick up soon? i have tried phoning my HV but she is out all all day....

    :hug: :hug:

    Not sure if loss of appetite is common after jabs but if babies are feeling unwell they can go off their milk a bit.
    If you're worried I'd call nhs direct (0845 4647) for advice. Have you taken his temperature?

    Hope he's ok :hugs: x

    It is common yes. If you're worried I would suggest the same as Sam's mum!

    sounds pretty normal.. give him some calpol and some extra cuddles!! If you get worried that his feeds aren't going in/staying down over a full day then call your gp. They will probably advise that hes kept hydrated and that he's not running a temp.
    Try not to worry :)

    Hope he feels better soon. :hug:

    he's done really good gaining so far though! He might just been slowing down a bit. As others have said though, it's far better to put your mind at rest. You know best.
