My son got his shots today and he slept from about 4 to almost 9 tonight i woke him up after calling the doctor and they said to watch him and if he was lethargic to take him to the ER.. well he woke up and played and was awake for about 45 minuts and now he is back asleep.. should i take him to the ER or do you think since he woke up and was fine is is ok?? He didnt seem to be sleepy when he was awake but i just gave him his bottle and put him in the swing and he went right back to sleep!! aahh i dont know what to do!!!

My kids both slept all day when they got their shots. Just keep an eye on him to be safe.

Call his doctor, see what they say. He's probably fine, but just to be on the safe side..

It is said to be normal that kids get sleepy after their shots, I'd still watch him very close and check his breathing regularly while he's sleeping.

I think it is normal because some shots will make them just a little sick...kids do normally sleep when they are sick. But, I would keep a close eye on him and if he is still looking really tired tomorrow then I would be concerned.

He has heart problems so thats why i am worried.. the docs said to take him in if he is still lathargic but he seemed fine for about 45 minutes.. so i dont know.. im on the phone with the doctor again.. so we will see i live about 30 minutes away from the hospital so if i need to go i need to go now
