....but they are trashed when we talk about vaccinations.

So which is it?  Are they trusted sources of professional medical information or do we pick and choose when they have expertise?

Pick and choose.  They are error prone.  For, example, extended rear facing has been widely known to be safer for over 50 years, yet the AAP has only begun to recognize this in their policy statements.

WHO is the World Health Organization

and 

AAP is the American Academy of Pediatrics

Review the literature and research yourself, is the only way.  Always seek the answer for, "why"?

Ignore all the haters and do what you think is  best. Listen to your pedi and any other "experts" and do your own research and then do what you feel is best.

I think if you want to, that's fine.  I also think it's hard to know what is good or bad information since most people do their searches online and there are tons of sites that give what I would think is bad information.

If you don't want to listen to these sorts of health groups, that's your prerogative.

I am fascinated that people are citing AAP and WHO in the extended breastfeeding thread but will decry them as worthless in the vaccination threads.

Either they are good sources of information or not.  And if you are picking and choosing from them, you're really not using them for information but for backup for what you've chosen from other sources, which I think is disingenuous.

You being the generic you, of course.
