6 week shots ...

My baby got her 6 week shots today at 11 am. She fell asleep at 12 noon and slept till 4, then i fed her since she hadn't eaten since 830 am. She then fell back asleep and has been sleeping ever since. Is this normal for a baby after they get their shots ? Should I just let her sleep .. I am worried she may not sleep tonight...

  • It's normal but I did wake mine so we weren't up all night. Watch her temp as long as that's ok she's ok. :)

  • 6 weeks it's okay mommy. It is just the start of new things to come. Some fun some not so fun, like shots. She will be okay. If she does not sleep through the night your there and will be for a long time, Hugh?

  • 6 week shots.!!!!.................... 2 months the latest here in B.C Canada. Thats crazy. But as longs as she's eating and she has no fever, I wouldn't worry too much

  • It's very normal. She won't let herself starve; she'll be fine.
