My 8 week old had his first jabs 4 days ago - afterwards he slept pretty much for a full 24 hours, only waking twice briefly to feed. The last couple of days he has been pretty normal, but today (day 4) he just wants to sleep all day again and no matter what I do he's not staying awake for more than 15 minutes at a time. When he is awake he is alert and happy as normal.
Do you think this could still be the jabs affecting his sleep pattern? He didnt suffer any redness or pain at injection site and only had a higher temperature for a day before it settled. Normally he would be up a lot more during the day.
I'm thinking I may be in for a long night - just when I'd got him sleeping through pretty much and being more awake in the day!
