You could trying giving the recommended dose of Children's Panadol about 1 hour prior to the injections to help with possible fever etc.

My DD is also 8 weeks old however we're not having her immunised [at least not at the moment]. She was born 15 days early for a start. I also believe our babies immune systems are way too immature for the immunisations they are meant to have, there's also way too many of them too!! DD didn't get the Hep B either.
This is only my opinion/thoughts on the matter, however I think every parent should do some research before just automatically having their child jabbed.
my little girl went a last week bit late cos of the move....
but all that she manages to get was a headach with a big of a tempature

My baby daughter Emily had her 8 week immunizations and what i did 40 mins before she had them I gave her a dose of Baby Panadol. The only side effects she had was a slight fever and a little puffiness in her legs so i gave her another dose of the Baby Panadol and she was fine.
Hope this helps. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know how you go.
I have read that you can use Emla cream(numbing cream) prior to bubs having their immunisations, so will be looking into it, when I see Dr tomorrow.
( I know it does work, as I was a wuss when getting my last tattoo and used it for myself! )
I am aware they still can have 'side effects' after being immunised, but I want to make it as stress-free ( for bub AND me) as possible! smile .
Has anyone else used this, & how did they go?
