little mucus doesn't always mean anything serious...i dont think vaccination has anything to do wid this as its not oral... oral vaccination can cause this sometimes.. like rotavirus.. but not ipv

Hello Sheeba Vijesh, as far as I know ipv has no relation with mucousy poop. I have read somewhere that mucous in poop is generally because of taking in lot of saliva, is ur baby teething or drooling? Keep a watch on the poop for next 24 hrs, if it's same pls consult the doc.

It's just heat I feel.. he have tightened the muscles during injection I feel. So next day..so mucus poop due to stress I feel. Observe for one more day. If poop is frequent and still like that..then Consult your doctor. I feel..it's ok. No need to worry. Summer season.. if anything new if he has eaten...or more mangoes or other things like that..then they poop like this.
