Hepatitis B Vaccine 1 month old, sleeping all afternoon and evening, normal? PIOG

My son is usually up all day nursing I mean literally all day long every hour (gained 3 lbs in a month) he is only 1 month old (born aug 7th); but ever since shortly after his 2nd hepatitis b shot today he has slept all afternoon all evening, waking briefly when I change him, and when I "made" him nurse because my breasts were getting sore. I am worried if this is normal, he has no fever or other issue and has had several wet diapers. I am concerned about going to sleep and him not waking up to nurse and me sleeping through the night. Is this a reaction I should worry about? He still moves around and breaths normal and will wake briefly when moved or changed, etc. Also will this hurt my milk supply???? Thank you in advance.

keep nursing him to wake him up, if he really truly wont wake up....pump yes. store it (freezer prob) or it will reduce your supply a bit

It's normal...and nothing to worry about. Do wake him every hour and a half to two hours so he can nurse though. So you will maintain supply.

  • I would keep a close eye on him. We refused the Hep B because when I was doing research during my first pregnancy, I read several cases where the infant died of "SIDS" within the next 48 hours of receiving that vaccine. Brain swelling, lethargy and sleepiness, fever... All common side effects of this shot.

    I would be waking him to nurse and keeping him VERY close to me. I hope he's ok!

I am a Canadian,breastfeeding (it IS best, there is nothing even close to that nutrition and bond), co sleeping, extended rear facing (if you don't rear face to the maximum of your seat, you're NOT doing all you can to protect your child), baby wearing, Non spanking (I want my kids to respect me, not fear me) ANTI- CIO, homemade baby food making, cloth diapering, organic (chemical free household!) recycling mama to TWO! My husband is my equal and best friend, not my master and I believe basic health care should be a human RIGHT, not a privilege.

Why is your son  getting Hep b shots? I have hep c and they alternately gave me hep a and hep b so I won't get them.
