Lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance most commonly runs in families, and symptoms usually develop during the teen or adult years, although babies can also get this.

Depends. Some infants are lactose tolerant during what would be the breastfeeding window (BM has lactose) but later loose the enzyme as they grow older. Your kids experience with the vaccine may have just uncovered a lactose intolerance that would have emerged later.Most transient intolerance related to diarrhea or other gut insult begins to resolve within 72 hours of being placed on lactose free diet.

What if your baby spits up all the rotavirus vaccine?

Do not repeat it. Unfortunately, as it is impossible to know just how much of the vaccine a baby has had, it is advisable not to repeat giving it orally to the baby so as to avoid giving too much of the vaccination. Though the vaccine may generate less immunity when only some of it is given, there may still be some benefit to the dosage that he or she has kept down. Read more...

Is it Normal to pass constipated stool with mucous after rotavirus vaccine.2 months old baby.

No. It is not normal for a 2 month-old baby to have firm, constipating stool before, during, or after a vaccination (the vaccination doesn't have anything to do with it). Constipation happens in babies sometimes, more often in formula-fed babies than in breast-fed ones. Because 0-3 months is very young, the doctor can check to be sure the baby is ok. Occasional glycerin suppository use can help. Read more...

Ask your doctor. It's always best to get the vaccines for your child according to the recommended schedule.

Not advised. It is not a huge problem if you miss a dose of vaccines. Hepatitis- if your child has no high risk behaviors, it can wait. Ipv- polio is unlikely in the continental United States so if it is a few months late, no problem. Rotavirus cannot be given after 8 months so ask your pediatrician bout that. Hib can be caught up later. Often less reactions to all vaccines when given a little older. Read more...
