A 100% personal decision

I recommend Dr Sears The Vacciene Book for a good and balanced look at the pros and cons

That is a personal choice that should be between you and your husband. I am pro-vaxx and have two sons that are incredibly healthy and have never had any adverse reactions, not even a fever or a sore spot, from a shot. My daughter in utero will also be vaxxed. However, you will never get an unbiased answer on this site. There are two types of people on here....those that vax and those that don't, and both sets are equally crazy when it comes to what they think is right or wrong.

My suggestion would be to educate yourself as best as you can and make a choice from there. Remember, anecdotal evidence should be taken with a grain of salt, so when moms on here either say their kids were fine (like I did) or that their kids are not fine, it's just anecdotal. Good luck in whatever you decide.

I do not vaccinate, but I would never tell someone else that they shouldn't. I would recommend you do the research and find out what is best for your family.

Thank you. Do you know of any unbiased sites that would be helpful?

Why don't you wait until new baby is older, over 2, and then decide? Unless you are going to use outside care it won't be an issue until school anyway.

If I had had a boy I would have done this. My dd was on a delayed schedule and didn't get more than one at a time.

That is something you need to research for yourself. If the doctor is saying no you may want to listen to his advice. Also the problems could continue to any other children in the future and get worse in the ones you have. FL.

Is there a difference for boys & girls?

I would look at the CDC website, solely for the statistics. Someone mentioned Dr. Sears, and that is a great unbaised look as well. Also, look for the manufacturer's websites to see what is listed for side effects. It contains the same information as the inserts that come with the prepared vaccines the doctors receive.

Do not let fear dictate that you do or don't vaccinate. It's a hard thing to do when you are dealing with the health of your children.
