Has a vaccine caused serious side effects to your child? Was it the first time they got the vaccine? How old were they? What happened? Thank you.

I do fully vaccinate my kids on the recommended schedule. Crankiness and tenderness at the injection site are the only adverse reactions we've had.

That's good. My baby has gotten fevers and strange colored poop from them but nothing else. I'm always so worried.

My son had no bad reactions that I saw. He slept a lot after the very first set, but there was no swelling or redness and he wasn't even cranky. All the others he didn't even get the sleepiness. I was surprised.

My son had a severe life altering reaction at 8 weeks old.  He had a stroke as a result and stopped breathing multiple times.  He now has epilepsy and cerebral palsy as a result.  He will have moderate disabilities for the rest of his life.

I'm so sorry this happened to your baby. I wish there was more awareness on the possible negative side effects of vaccines.

I can tell you my unvaxxed girls have had no reactions to being unvaxxed. Totally healthy, healthier than most. I didn't want to risk it and decided to keep them healthy in other ways. :)

That's good! Did their school give you problems? How did you boost their immune system other ways?

No problems. It's super easy to get an exemption here.
I just use breast feeding, baby wearing, avoid chemicals, good nutrition, common sense, and the occasional herb or eo as needed to keep them healthy.

My kiddo went into NICU as a result of Vitamin K shot making his blood so thick they couldn't get a draw.   That single shot cost me over $14,000 in NICU costs...  Luckily babe is now a healthy 9 month old, and we're content not to give him any more injections...
