You can regularly find me on the SAHM board but lurked in here since my 2 month old recieved her first vaccines yesterday.
My DS was vaccinated on time w/ every vaccine. This was due to him being in daycare @ the time & lets face it, not vaccinating isn't always "socially acceptable."
However, since becoming a SAHM I've begun to wonder how neccessary the vaccines would be for DD.
Why do you choose to delay & at what point do you start to delay it? I would prefer to wait until DD is a year old before introducing her to vaccines any further. But is now the time to start delaying them or is 4 months too young to delay? (As that is when she is scheduled to recieve more)
In the dr. office yesterday I overheard the nurse talking to a hospital rep saying that they'd seen 2 cases of chicken pox already that morning from children who weren't vaccinated. But again, since DD doesn't leave the house much what are her chances of being exposed?
I'm just confused. It's a war within myself. I know what I want to do but just like a lot of people don't know if it's the right thing to do. That's why this whole delay thing sounds so good to me....
