I am wondering about vaccines, because I am now hearing terrible things about them! Like they can cause autism, etc...
My son is 3 months old and has had his usuall vaccines already...but I'm worried...
I watched the news last night, and they had a segment about vaccines. But one woman made a good point. Her nephew didn't get his measles shots (MMR), contracted the illness at a birthday party, and died of complications!!! I know thats one case, but I'm sooooo confused!! Anyone have advice? Any advice, please!:)

i was listening to the show doctors and one doctor said he wants people to put it off for 6 months to a year... because you see signs of autism any where from a year - 3 years of age. now the other doctor said no don't put it off there is not 100% proof that shots are the reason kids get it. now a couple was on and had 4 kids w/ autism one didn't get any shots and still had it. so they think it could be genetic, they thing is we don't know what causes it yet and shots are proven to work. the 3rd Dr. said if your family has neurologic problems and autism in your family he wouldn't recommend getting shots... but if not then defiantly get them. hope this helps. look stuff up. and ask your Dr to put off the mmr until your child is at least 18 months.
