Rotavirus vaccine and change in stooling pattern

My lo got the second dose of the rotavirus vaccine on Thursday (at 4 months ) and I noticed that for the last few days he's been going a bit more than usual (4 times a day vs. 1 or 2) and his stools are a bit runnier and more mucousy than usual. Has anyone else noticed something similar in their LOs?

Our DD sis the same thing with her second dose. It stopped after 4 or 5 days and all was well.

Rotovirus vaccine can give your child "rotvirus like " symptoms AKA mild case of rotoviurs. Im assuming they told you that it can be contagious from poop contact. If your child is around any other babies or toddlers I would let their momma's know before hand.

We don't vaccinate, we kept our sons intact, we use cloth diapers, we co-sleep, we extended RF, we breastfeed, but we watch too much tv and I totally dig plastic! Everyone has their issues, lol.

Yup! And you may want to bleach/disinfect the diapers as well.
