Possible side effects of MMR2 vaccine

In connection to my previous post about MMR2 vaccination for toddlers, I would like to add up these possible side effects any toddler could get after having immunized with this MMR2 vaccine. At the clinic, I was told that like all medicines, this M-M-RvaxPro vaccine can cause side effects like fever, injection site redness, injection site pain, injection swelling and few reports of injection site bruising.

According to the nurse who has given this vaccine to my little girl, there are other side effects which have been reported with the use of the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine and these are burning or stinging of short duration at the injection site, joint pain or swelling, rash, and unusual bleeding or bruising under the skin. There were also other less common side effects have been reported and some were serious and this includes allergic reaction, seizures, and inflammation of the brain.

Now, the side effects 1 out of 10 in which children usually gets are the fever, injection site redness, injection site pain and swelling and the rests are very seldom. My little girl was one of those who did not experience any side effect of the said medicine but I was glad I was told that these may occur, as it made me aware and also prepared for the worst situation that could have happened. So if any side effect your child gets that leads to serious, it is best to tell a doctor and seek medical attention.

MMR 2 immunization for toddlers

My daughter just had her MMR2 immunization at 3 years and 4 months old. To give you an insight if what an MMR vaccine is, this vaccine is an immunization shot against measles, mumps and rubella which is also called German measles. She got 2 injections on both upper arms which contains M-M-RvaxPro and REPEVAX.

This M-M-RvaxPro is a vaccine containing measles, mumps and rubella viruses that have been weakened. It has been said that when a person is given the vaccine, the immune system will make anti bodies against measles, mumps, and rubella viruses. And that the antibodies will help protect against infections cause by these viruses.

The REPEVAX is a vaccine used to protect against infectious diseases. They work by causing the body to produce its own protection against the bacteria and viruses that cause the targeted diseases. This vaccine by the way is used to boast protection against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis which is whooping cough and poliomyelitis which is polio in children at the age of 3 years.

So, if your child is due for this immunization, it would be best to have him or her immunized as there are outbreaks of measles in some parts of the UK recently.

Do breastfeed babies need to have a drink of water

I asked the same question once to a paediatrician and she answered, “No”. There is no need to give your baby drinks of water, even in a very hot climate if you are breast feeding your baby, because breast milk is a drink and food in one! So if the weather is hot, your baby may want to feed more often.

Children in Hot weather

Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of the sun, that is why as a mother I do make sure that my child is protected every time I took her out on a sunny day.

Here are some tips for parents on what to do with your children on a hot weather:

For babies under 6 months - Keep babies under six months out of the sun altogether, as their skin is thinner and they may not able to produce enough of pigments called melanin to protect them from sunburn.

Older children - Should also be protected by either covering them up or with a high protection sun screen lotion.

Important information: Children with fair, red hair, blue eyes and freckles are said to be specially at risk to the sun, as the paler skin, the less melanin is produced and more likely the child will easily get burnt in the sun.

By 12 months. Babies may sleep for about 12 to 15 hours altogether and 2 years old may sleep for about 11-12 hours at night, with one or 2 naps in the day.

Babies sleeping routine from 3 to 6 months

I have written the other day about new born babies sleeping routine and this now is the continuation of that post. As your baby grows, you will notice that the needs for night feeds become less frequent and the period of sleep gets longer.

I remember when my little one is at this age she sleeps around 8 hours or even longer at night and at around four months , she spends on average twice as long asleep at night as she does during the day, which is normal for babies as what the health visitor told me. If in your case you got some concerns about your babies sleep routine, it is always best to talk and seek for an advice to a health professional such as your baby’s doctor or your health visitor.

Newborn to 3 months sleeping pattern

Like adults, a new born baby’s sleep pattern varies as some babies need more or less sleep than others. I remember, I did ask the health visitor about this during her first week visit and she told me that a new born baby spends roughly the same amount of time asleep as awake, but may spend as many as 16 to 18 hours out of 24 asleep, or as little as 8. Inevitable, sleep will be disturbed by the need for night feeds.

I may also add that changing nappies or diapers could also disturb your baby’s sleep, as well as problems of being too hot or too cold, so it is also important to keep your baby’s room in the right temperature, I think it is about 16 to 20c and you will know this because it is warm enough for you to be comfortable wearing light clothing.
