Day 6 past 12 month vaccinations and his tummy is still so messed up. The nurses said day 6 is when the MMR component tends to show its symptoms and he’s got the runny nose now that is one of the symptoms but he woke up last night so many times thirsty .

He usually sleeps all night 7pm-7/730am and has done since he was 7 months old yet last night he woke between almost every sleep cycle needing help to find his spill proof sippy cup (I leave it in the cot with him every night).

I can imagine the MMR symptoms would cause the thirstiness and that would coincide with what the nurse said but I don’t understand the stomach upset, is it the small remnants of the chicken fibroblast – which from what I understand is egg..
Not posting this to arise anti Vaxxer debates, I fully stand by our choice. It is a utilitarian decision for us that the good outweighs the bad but I just don’t get it and it’s frustrating that no one has been able to explain it.

Has anyone else experienced this with their baby with/without food allergies ? x

Rotovirus live strain – Beckett

<!– wp:paragraph –>
<p>First and foremost, I am not encouraging anything, I am merely citing my personal view.I am kinda scared to even write this, which is terrible as we should be able to freely talk about things, especially when it comes to our children’s welfare however this topic is extremely censored.</p>

<p>I called the therapeutic goods administration line to report what I believe to be an adverse reaction to the Rotovirus live strain that Beckett was given. They take down the details and they don’t give any advice as such, which is fine, but it was suggested that what happened may be a known side effect. I don’t know enough about it, I need to look it up, the same thing happened with Brooklyn but at the time we were still navigating Brooklyn’s food allergies so I wasn’t as aware, but this time I am so suss. </p>

<p>The thing that absolutely irks me though is that if this is a known side effect;</p>

<ol><li>Why are you not advised of this before it being administered; </li><li>Why are you basically forced, by law, to give this, without being in a position to give <strong>informed </strong>consent, having known it’s risks vs benefits?</li></ol>

<p>This is completely at odds with a major human rights factor in the medical world – CONSENT.</p>

<p>Think about everything else that you have done or do, every thing should come with proper medical advice so that you can weigh it up for yourself whether the benefits outweigh the risks.</p>

<p>When I had my c section for example, I was told <strong>everything </strong>that could go wrong and the actual risk of that happening and if that thing did eventuate what would happen from there, but when it comes to this type of thing you don’t get the choice and that is wrong.</p>

<p>Again, I don’t know enough to comment about the need to push this on every one, all I know is that you cannot enrol your child in preschool/school without having these, or without a medical exemption and I just don’t know that it is right.</p>

<p>I will now be discussing this with our paed as I don’t fancy seeing my son pass blood, mucous and be in pain again just to avoid a gastro bug that, in my view, he is unlikely to get and likely to recover well from if he did get. Enough is enough.</p>
