    Mia had her BCG vaccine this morning and seems a little out of sorts since. So proud of her, she didn't cry, just left out a little wimper. The doc said she shouldn't have any illness from it but she just doesn't want to settle. Should I be worried? Xx

    I'm not sure as its not a routine vaccination (we are in Yorkshire) but I'm sure cuddles and a bit of calpol would help x

    No way? TB is on the up in the UK! (she says not having had one herself!) it's optional here but I was warned by the midwife that they don't give it on schools anymore!

    No they are not supposed to have a reaction to it...but some babies do. Don't think her mood is to do with having it done now, think she's just having an off day.
