Changes in bowels after vaccines

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm new to this, so I hope I'm posting in the right place.

Adaline was vaccinated with DTaP and Rotavirus 3 days ago. Prior to her vaccinations she pooped 2-3 times per week. Now she is pooping 3-4 times per day. Has anyone else experienced this or do you just think it has to do with age?
My diet hasn't changed at all.

We don't vaccinate so I don't have any experience to share. You might have better luck asking on the vaccine forums though: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...splay.php?f=47

Sorry Mama, we don't vax either, so I don't have any info for you.
Try the link CTW posted. I hope it's nothing and your LO is is just going through a
more poopy phase.

Totally normal. The rotavirus vaccine is a live virus vaccine, so it can cause a mild form of diarrhea. Be aware that this IS contagious and can make you sick, too. Wash your hands carefully after diaper changes. It wouldn't be a big deal or a horrible illness if you should catch it (you might be immune anyway), but I'm sure you probably don't want to catch it yourself or give it to anyone else.

Thanks! I feel way better knowing it's normal.

With the Rota vaccine it is normal. Annoying, but normal. Just make sure to wash your hands OFTEN cause that virus spreads VERY easily!
