Are vaccines affecting our babies sleep pattern?

Did your babies sleep pattern change after immunizations?

  • Oh Lord girl you just opened a can of worms...prepare yourself for the vax bashers!

    My kids did not have interuptions in sleep patterns that I noticed. One out of my 5 did run a temp after two of them when he was very little but that is about it. I gave mine some childrens Advil before the apt, and they did fine. You should know that my older kids are 23, 18, 15 and 14, and none of them are Autistic or have any developmental delays because they were vaxed.

  • Not really. One of my kids was a horrible sleeper and the other one was a great sleeper. They were still that way after their vaccines.

    As far as immediately after the shot, that depended on if they had a fever and felt crappy or not. If they did, then they slept more, like they were sick.

    Yes it is like saying to an smoker to stop smoking!

    I think that the OP has a valid question. I've delay the vaccines and space them out. The first year of life should be a year of bounding between mom and the baby without having to be worried about bringing the baby sick after the immunizations.

  • No. Sure, she slept a little more after the vaccines that caused a low fever, but she hasn't had *permanent* changes due to vaccines.  Lots of things affect sleep habits from bad dreams, over stimulated days, illness, teething, to growth spurts, and the list goes on.

  • She just slept more the day and night of- but the next day she was back to her regular routine. Now she's older and it doesn't phase her at all.

  • Nope. We didn't vaccinate!
