It was my intent to do the alt vax schedule.  However, at 2 mos, my DD had loose stools due to milk allergies.  So we opted to skip the Rotavirus and replace it with Hib.  Last visit really threw her off her sleeping and eating pattern, and just plain fussy for several days.  So I'm thinking I may have selected the wrong vax's to switch.


How can I get her back on the alt vax schedule? Should I push the PC back and only get Rotavirus at 5 mos?   Or do PC and Rotavirus at 5 mos even though she would have another Rotavirus at 6 mos?


This was our plan.

2 months - DTaP, Rotavirus
3 months - PC, Hib
4 months - DTaP, Rotavirus

5 months - PC
, Hib
6 months - DTaP
, Rotavirus

7 months - PC, Hib

*marked out vax's she has already received



Below is what we have done so far.

2 mos - DTap, Hib

3 mos - PC,  Rotavirus

4 mos - DTap, Hib

It's fine to do the DTaP with HIB, then the PC with the Rota, as you have done - I've done that in some patients.

As far as the fussiness though, which shots caused that?  I couldn't tell from your question.  Did you feel like her reacting was fairly bad?
