Hi, my son got his 4 month shots a week ago tomorrow, and he's been very irritable since like, 2 days after he got the shots. I have read that it takes up to 14 days for the shots to leave the system and I've also read that 6 days is too long. It's mostly affecting his sleeping, he's still eating well. But his naps are cut short cause he starts to cry, only wants to be held. At night time, he was sleeping a whole 7 hours or more, now he sleeps 4 or 5 before waking up and just wants to fall back asleep on me after some food. He was eating less than normal the first couple days after, but now he's back to normal eating. But it could also be that he's teething. Today he was chomping away on his burp cloth. Could it be a combo of the two?
