  • It could be a number of things, teething or a growth spurt. How long ago did he get the shots? his legs may be sore still. Have you tried giving him tylenol or motrin?

  • Sounds like a growth spurt to me, but like pp said, could be lots of things. If he's reacting to the shots, he'd probably have a fever so you can rule that out easy enough. My daughter only woke up once in the night, then right around 4 months started waking every 2 hours. She had a bit of a cold, but I think it was mostly a growth spurt. So I fed her when she woke up, then gradually got her to go back to sleep without nursing, one feeding at a time. Unfortunately the "sleeping through" milestone comes and goes, especially when it's this early.

  • prob not related to shots.My son did same thing. Maybe what started as growth spurt turned n2 habit. You shouldn't give motrin 2 4 mo old.He's prob def teething he should get front teeth in month or 2. gums swell at night and could give him a tummy ache.

  • I agree with stircrazy my son did the same thing . Babies all react diffrently. IF you think it is related to the shots ask your pediatrician.

  • My son slept through the night until he was 16 weeks... after that, never. He's 9 months now and gets up 1-2 times still.
