My 2mo old son was administed the vaccine and has not had a bowl movement in 11 days. He also has had increased acid reflux. My daughter (2 years) didn't receive the vaccine so I didn't have any bad expectations. I am still trying to get him to have a BM and pray that intusseption isn't the end result
