    hi i have just had letter through the post Dior has got to get the mmr jab in a week, any advice? i no nothing about it?
    what side affects will Dior have? will they be similer to when they get there first 3 loads of jabs when there first born? i need to no if she will be a bit poorly or have a temperature so i can take her on the fri so i can stay with her for the week end as il be in work all week..

    also were do they jab her? is it 2 in the leg?

    any advice would be great x x

    I cant remember where Jess got hers but I dont think it was on the bum, thats not to say that other practices dont do it that way. So many people dont get it done these days that for me, it was more important to get her immunised. For me, the risks didnt outweight the fact that getting any of the measles mumps or rubella could be devastating for her so I went for it without any problem.

    Hiya,
    She didnt have a bad reaction to it at all but she isnt prone to things like that getting her down. Its quite difficult to tell if she is unwell. (dont want to sound like a bragging mum btw).
    Im not saying that Dior or Braydon might or might not take a reaction to it though, all the kids are different, just have the calpol at the ready!
    Im sure there are kids that have incurred side effects from the triple vacine but the argument isnt good enough for me not to have it done. I do wish they would left it be done in 3 separates though, that might mean more people would sleep easier about getting it done.
    I hope this helps, you have to do what you think it right :D

    from what i can remember with kurt they did it in the top of his leg and it was just the one injection, they warned me that he might get a temperature and that it had a side effect of them being very miserable and stroppy with it for up to a week afterwards, kurt got the lot :lol: n was a nightmare for the next week :lol: but the side effects do differ from child to child so i wouldnt worry to much im sure Dior will be fine!

    Tell me about it, Mason needs his booster....what will I do if he just turns around and says "No"?? He's big enough now that he could really struggle...I'm dreading it.

    Ahhh, Sarah its cool. They cry for a wee minute and then its over with and forgotten. It probably hurts more when they fall over or bang their heads. I was expecting merry hell to break loose but Im not even sure she did cry. I of course was a bit of a wreck.
