Has anyone else’s baby been really irritable/crying and although seems hungry, fights being fed after their eight week vaccines?

My wee one was a bit off after his, he fed ok but not much. But since yesterday afternoon he’s been taking 20/30ml and kicking off, and although he’s hungry he’s having a mouthful and then spitting it out.

I'm not sure if the live rotavirus has irritated his tummy (he has had a dirty nappy since he got it) or if this is normal behavior because surely it can’t last more than a day or so?

It's normal for some babies to lose their appetite after taking vaccines. Are you breastfeeding or giving him formular? Just try and make sure baby is well hydrated and check his temprature too. Baby should be ok after a day or two.
