Vaccinations, co-sleeping, sleeping postitions and other controversial topics
Okay, so I'm 21, and my son is 2 months. He was recently vaccinated and I had friends tell me "research before you immunize" I didn't because I have always know I wanted to vaccinate my son. I mean it can save his life in the long run.. So what I want to know is did you vaccinate and why or why not?
Also I know all about the risk of SIDS but, I still choose to let my son sleep in the same bed with me if his dads not home. I also let him sleep on his tummy because that is how he likes to sleep the best. If hes not sleeping on his tummy he is sleeping in his car seat, and he seems comfortable like that. Does anybody else do this?
Last but not least, I don't breastfeed, I never even tried. Honestly I didn't want to. The thought of it embarrasses me, because I grew up with 3 younger siblings and my mother didn't breast feed any of us. And none of my friends were able to due to health issues. So I was never around it and it was just an awkward thing for me. Did anybody else not breastfeed for the same reason or any other reasons?
I am prepared for the "Breast is Best", "Back to Sleep" and other comments like that but honestly I'm my sons mother and I will raise his how I want, but I still want to hear about your stories.
