If your child is vaccinated and has a "better" chance of fighting off the illness, then why worry if they play with someone who isnt vaccinated? That doesnt make sense. Isnt the point of the vaccine, to be protected for when they do come in contact with it? If it didnt protect them then why get it? And truth be told, more people spread the diseases around during the time that they are shedding from getting the vaccine.

I think they get a couple while in the hospital. But say you're in there for a couple of days, at the hospital I'm delivering at I will be there for 2 nights and 3 days after birth, I will allow them to give her one shot per day. If they're going to have a reaction it will be within 24 hours so I feel better going with that route.

I know someone who swears up and down that the vaccines gave her son Autism. I know there is a lot of controversy about that, but I'm not sure what to believe. But I will vaccinate my son but I won't allow them to do more than 3 shots at once. It just seems like too much when they're that little.

i'm glad you brought this up,I to wouldnt want my son to get a bunch of shots within two days that sounds dangerous actually! And I think that autism thing I don't believe.I read about the trials they did and there was very few cases where the child ended up having autism and it was never defined if it was the vaccines or not

DD is due for her 2nd set in a couple of weeks, and I couldn't be more excited.

The doctor who led and published the study linking the MMR vaccine to Autism, has since retracted his findings and has lost his medical license.

I honestly don't believe the vaccines are dangerous unless they have an allergic reaction, much like any other "medicine" we take. I think doing one shot per however many they need take away the guess work if a reaction does occur. Im glad you liked that I brought the one shot thing up. A lot of people don't think about doing that.

Wow! Thanks for all the input! I guess I have a lot of research to do!
