I posted this on my playgroup board, but I wanted to share it here as well.


Today was Nathaniel's 2 month check-up. I made DH go with me because I thought they might give me a hard time about not vaccinating. They were very accomodating in the hospital when I refused the Hep-B shot, but I didn't know how they would react today. We were seeing a doctor in the practice that we had not previously seen, too, so I wasn't sure what to expect.


We live in NC, so the only way out of vaccines is with religious beliefs. We had a legal document signed and notarized. According to our state law, it is all or nothing, you can't pick and choose. The doctor was fantastic! He

We got a new dr too and I was very pleased. One of the things he said about vaccines was - There's a lot of money to be made. He also said that we didn't have all these vaccines when we were growing up (and he's at least 20 yrs older than me). Unfortunately, I figure he'll retire before my kids are grown.

Hopefully, as either the debate, science or common sense goes on, more and more people will again feel comfortable about going to mainstream doctors.


For now, it's a start and I'm delighted to see that at least some mainstream doctors are understanding their oath.

Good - I am happy to see more Doctors are becoming more accommodating.

And keep up that breastfeeding - I firmly believe that one of the best things we can do for our childrens health is breastfeed until they self-wean (YMMV). :)

Hey Karin,

Kiera nurses once a day right before bedtime and sometimes she may skip a night but not very often.

Do you think Keira is going to wean anytime soon? Kiera's still very attached to her night nursing and not skipping enough of them for me to think it's in our future short-term which I am fine with. Nursing once a day is really not a chore ;)

Roan will be 2 Dec 5th and she still nusres 2-3 times (all night nursing though). It's more on the weekend. As she is also completely non-vacc'ed I'm delighted she still wants to nurse. I had caught all the childhood dieases as a kid so she gets those good antibodies(measles, mumps, rubella, cp etc)
