  • I wouldn't think that this would be cause from the shots. It sounds like he might need to be seen by the pediatrician if this has been going on for a while.

  • Are you breastfeeding? Mine had gross green ones too, turned out he wasn't getting enough hindmilk, I was switching breasts each time I fed him, and he was getting the watery foremilk, I stopped switching, just let him finish on one breast and it stopped almost right away, He was pretty p'd off for a couple days after his shots too, I think it really upsets them, maybe stress??
    But of course check with your dr if it doesnt stop

  • mine gets diarrhea every time she has shots. I hate it but it goes on for a few days for us and she runs a slight fever. I just give her some tylenol before shots to get a headstart on pain control and help with the fever. It seems to help.
