I've just come back from my LO's 8 week immunisations. The nurse said that I should give a dose of paracetamol straight away and then another dose when she goes to bed. She said I should have given a dose of paracetamol before we went to the surgery so she advised us to do that the next time for her 12 week immunisations. Is it standard practice to give paracetamol like this? I thought that paracetamol should be given only if a fever develops?
