    Default 4 month vax or sleep regression?

    So DD had her 4 month vax on Wednesday. She was fine Wednesday arvo, even slept 9hrs straight that night but since then she has been so sleep resistant. She is so tired, so cranky. It's 3am and I'm currently on my 3rd hour of trying to get her back to sleep.
    She has never been like this overnight... Daytime yes, night time no.
    Is it 4 month sleep regression or vaccine related?
    Today she had 2 half hour naps and that was all, wouldn't entertain the idea of any more and she was the same yesterday and up 5 times over night last night.
    I'm going spare.....
    Did anyone else's bubs have this after vaccination.... I've never heard of it.
    If it's sleep regression does that disappear at 5 months?

    I know of so many people going through this - even me. It happened a day or two before dd got her needles. She won't sleep of a night time, she it tired and cranky a lot and it has been taking me ages to get her to sleep of a day time. She is cutting a tooth as well. Dd is waking a few times a night instead of sleeping through... Safe to say I can't wait til it's over and she is back to normal again?

    I'd say it's a sleep regression, which occurs around 4 months when your newborn "wakes up".

    Honestly the night issues are likely because she is overtired from not sleeping enough during the day.

    1 hr a day is not enough at that age. But I too understand your frustration at not being able to get her to sleep more during the day. DS was terrible at day sleeping which always played havoc on our night, and still does at 16 months. I love the days he has a good day sleep as it 9 times out of 10 means I'm in for a reasonable night.

    Hang in there, I'm sure it will pass. She is probably just excited to be discovering that there is a world outside mummy's tummy.

    My DD did it at 4months. Lasted about 3weeks with only sleeping in arms/being bounced on a fit ball! Now she's back to self setting.
