Study finds Infants Increased Sleep Following Afternoon Immunizations

Linda Franck

New findings on Infant Sleep After Immunization published in Pediatrics.   According to lead author Linda Franck, RN, PHD, acetaminophen does not significantly influence sleep duration post-vaccines, but the time of day when vaccines are given may be playing a role (or at least has an association) with the duration of sleep post vaccination.
