My 2 month old dd just got her shots yesterday...
When does the crankiness/fever/beyond exhaustion start??
She slept for 5 hours straight(NEVER done that!!), then 2 hours, then 1...and now she's sleeping again.

Am I in for a long day?? Or should it have happened already??

DD never had much of a problem after that first day. She would be tired and a little cranky, but nothing too bad. By the second you wouldn't even know she had gotten shots. Your dd may be a little sore, but I bet any crankiness would have already come and gone. I'm a strong believer in tylenol or Motrin. Just be sure you have the right dosage.

My son has only had his 2 month shots, but never had issues. He took a short nap right after and then woke up all smiles.

It doesn't happen to every baby. *shrug*

DD would mostly sleep a lot a day or two after getting shots. That was usually her only affect. She'd be more cranky when she was older.

The sleeping is a good thing my daughters were like that. My son is cranky and wants to held all the time

You're probably done. She might have a bit of a fever, but that's it. Don't worry though, baby will be napping a lot less at four months, and even less at six months.

Sleepiness can be a side affect. Just give her tylenol for the 24 hours
