    Default LO got immunization shots and is sleepy

    Been two days since LO (8 wks) got his shots and he's been really sleepy. He does wake to feed but eats for much less time. Do I need to pump (I hate pumping) or can I just go with his needs? DOes anyone know how long this sleepiness lasts? Should I do anything about it? Thanks.

    Normal - lasts probably a day or less. You should be fine with his needs. You can also give him tylenol if he seems fussy and uncomfortable.

    So you don't think milk supply will suffer if I don't pump? I'd much prefer not to but that's my worry. Thanks

    Do you have current supply problems? If you have a lower supply issue, then definitely you should pump. Also, I'd say if you totally miss a feeding, then yes, you should probably pump as well. But, I think you'll find your lo will resume normal eating probably very soon. I have no personal experience with this, though - mine actually nurses more after vaccinations. Maybe others will have more first hand experience for 'ya.
