Alright my non-vaxing pals .. :-p Here's my question, as you've probably seen from my siggy - I'm due to have a baby in 'bout 3 weeks .. I've been thinking about all of the "routine" things they do to babies, and from the nurse side of it all I never thought there was anything wrong with any of the things they do. Now that it's my baby -- I don't want them touching him! (go figure!)
So my question is about erythromycin eye ointment .. I'm assuming a number of you declined having it used with your children, but I'm looking for reasons not to have it done.. other than that DH and I don't have STDs. Or is that enough of a reason?? I haven't really seen anything about negative reactions / side effects .. but I also haven't dug very deep.
I know its not a vax question (and I still believe in vaxing, nice try ;)).. but I do respect your opinions .. so I thought I'd start with you ladies.
