Do you let your baby get the hep b vaccine at birth or do you delay it? If you delay it how long do you wait?

I plan to delay for at least 6 months maybe more, but we will not have our child in daycare.  If we needed to use daycare I would have it done sooner.

Mine both got it.  We did everything on schedule, the only one they won't be getting is the HPV vaccine, but since mine are currently 7 (DS) and 5  (DD) I have a few more years before I need to worry about that one.

I would delay it.  I don't have Hep. B.  so the baby is not at risk.  Vaccination can interfere with breastfeeding if it makes the baby fussy, and I think establishing nursing  is more important than getting a vaccine he or she can wait a bit for.

I did not get it. There is no reason to until much older.

I didnt know they got it at birth...I had a emergency C-section so I was out for the first few hours of his life... so maybe he got it when I was out???

We do everything on schedule, but Hep B isn't done at birth here in Europe. It's done at I think 4 months.
