Three days ago I took my 11 week old son for his 2 month vaccination and since then he's very restless at sleep. For his night sleep, Ι breastfeed him, he sleeps, Ι hold him for 30 minutes until he's deeply asleep and put him in his basket. Worked like a charm. The last 3 nights, same routine, as soon as I put him down he starts moving and moving till he wakes himself. He had to sleep on me all these nights, it's like his sleep was mainly light and rarely deep. Is it possible that his vaccination affected his sleep? Has any other parent experienced something similar?

My LO was poorly after the 8 week immunisations and I've heard others say there's were a bit unsettled.

Hopefully you'll be back to normal soon.

They can have calpol from 2 months. That should make a huge difference.

Could be the immunisations, or a developmental leap (little brains in overdrive as they learn new skills, etc - Google 'Wonder Weeks'). Most likely it'll stop as soon as it started. Both mine went through endless phases like this - sleep development/improvement tends not to be linear, more of a 2-steps-forward-1-step-back in my experience

Thank you all for the replies, yesterday was the fifth night and he slept better. I asked the doctor and he said it affects them for some days.
