I know this is a natural group and a lot of moms don't vax at all but I'm sure there are those who do. So I was just curious.

Did you have any issues with doctors or anyone going against your wishes?

We don't vax. I  just tell the dr we are still researching. It hasn't been a problem because I only take them in fir sick appointments after 18 months.

well i have to do some research about my state laws. i have heard conflicting "laws" i plan on delaying for sure, and i have not decided on if i am going to selectively vax or not vax at all. i have heard that my state is one of 2 in the nation that does not allow religious exemption, only medical so i am still trying to figure out if that is indeed true and if so, well they will be delayed and only get vaccines that are a "must have" no chicken pox, hpv etc. if its not true and my state does allow for religious exemption, i am leaning strongly toward not vaxing at all but have not totally decided.

We no longer vaccinate. I guess "No vax at all", as my last 5 are vax-free.

thank you so much! i have heard so many different yes and no and the info online can be conflicting as well. i figured if i just walked into my local health dept and asked they would just flat out lie or give me a run around.

I did give ds 2 vaccines, but then decided against continuing. I'm undecided about the future, but I just believe a baby is too young for all that to be put into them. A lot of brain development happens the first year.

As for my pedi, she's not really unsupportive, but when LO was sick a couple months ago she was like "I think he has whooping cough. This is what I'm always so scared of with not getting vaccinated." It felt like a stab at my choice. We tested him just to make sure, but I was pretty sure he didn't have it (he didn't have whooping cough). When listing his symptoms, I told her he coughed maybe once a day.

I'm bringing intact back! His body, his choice.
