Hi Teresa! I was curious if your other kids are vaccinated and why this issue is coming up now. I'm just being nosy :)

Are there particular vaccinations that you are more concerned about, or is it all of them?

I was a bit disingenuous - there is a paper from the UK http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11293683 (but see http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9363419)

So I think, in combination between the studies in South and Middle America and in Europe, it is pretty clear that breastfeeding totally kicks rotavirus' a@@, however, this only extends as long as you breastfeed and is not very good if you supplement. I would probably not vaccinate a new baby against rotavirus, but I have gotten my a@@ whopped by breastfeeding pro-vaccine friends whose babies (pre-vaccine) had bad rotavirus cases. Risk reduction (~90%) is about the same with breastfeeding or vaccine, but vaccine protection may last longer (and the older the child when they get rotavirus the "easier" it is manageable).

I will keep looking, I know there have been a ton of studies, but I don't have a lot of time to look.

I did start looking on the sites against vaccines, but I wanted to find something less biased.

Brazil and Mexico, really? In both countries, this may be an article pro-breastfeeding, but not necessarily against the rotavirus vaccine. Do you have anything along these lines from the US or Western Europe?

If he was my husband, I would be asking him to provide scientific proof that vaccines are safe.

But I will post the studies I find as I come across them...
