I think anything is normal from my friends children and I. We were lucky with I she just slept about 18 hours out of 24 after the jabs.
I hope H feels better soon. You can give Calpol from 2 months (how fortunate!!) so you could always give him some and see how he is.

A was exactly the same it was like a switch has been flicked. I think her legs were hurting her as it seemed to be if anything touched them. She was absolutely fine the next day though x

J was the same too and he had trouble feeding for a couple of days as I think his thighs were sore and when he lay across me to feed he would scream. The day after he was just a bit sleepy. I gave one dose of Calpol but didn't seem to need more.
The good news is although I was dreading the next set of jabs, he was completely normal after those!
Hope he's better soon!

I think every baby is different, and for each set they can react differently too. For tge 1st set O cried at doctors and then literally slept the whole time, only waking for feeds. 2nd set was ratty for a couple of days, 3rd set he had a huge lump on one leg and was irritable. Can you tell I'm looking forward to his MMR next week :-S.
Calpol is king. Also if his leg seems sore or he gets a little lump cone up you can use a cold compress. Otherwise cudfles for both of you are definitepy the order of the day. Big hugs mummy x

Yes exactly the same, slept for about 4 hours after then woke up screaming and gave calpol. Was a bit grumpy and delicate for a couple days, and sorry to say we had bad nights for about 5 days. However as someone else said, she was fine after both next lot of jabs x
