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.

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