Baby sleeping too much after a vaccination?

My two month old infant had his first vaccinations yesterday and is sleeping but he has already slept ten hours straight. He has never even slept through the night before (6 hours straight has been his max)! Did this happen to anyone else? Is this normal? I don't remember it with my first! Help me please!

  • the first time my son got his shots he went straight to sleep. I think it might be a while for them to not feel the pain. did you give him medicine before he got them? that could help him sleep too

  • I gave him a dose of tylenol after his vaccinations.

  • My daughter sleeps after all shots, then when she wakes up she has a fever, then it is time for tylenol
