My son is rapidly approaching 4 months old which means he'll receive more vaccinations at his next appointment. I wasn't at all prepared at his 2 month checkup for him to receive them, so he did. I brought home a completely different child. He was so tired, cranky, fussy, and hot. He took on a completely different temperment.
My husband and I are concerned about giving him the follow up vaccines. We definitely will not give him anything with mercury or thimerosol as we feel that it could hinder his neurological development. We have researched the topic, but have found the information to be severely biased in both directions.
Any websites, advice, or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
I'd take into account the things they're vaccinating for. Look up some statistics....how common is it? Is it fatal? Can it be treated successfully if contracted? Side effects from vaccine?

Maybe tired but that's it with all 3 of mine. You can space them out if you want.
