I told him I wanted to look into the vaccines before vaccinating my 2 month old (But I am not vaccinating him with most vaccines..not sure if I will at all)..anyway I told him I would be delaying and possbily not vaccinating at all.  His response?  Not typical of a doctor!  He said that it was good i was doing research and that I know my child best. He said that most diseases they vaccinate for are pretty much erradicated and most kids get pox anyhow with no complications. The only one he recommended was the pertussis, because they are having an outbreak in california right now.

I will think about it but I was totally shocked a pediatrician who gives vaccines every day was fine with my decision and agreed with some of it! Wow.

I had a WONDERFUL doc appt today too!  :)

She actually listened to me and didn't push the shots.  I was so happy.  Braeden hasn't been to a Dr in a long time because I have had some horrible experiences in the past.

Good! Our doctor did okay with it. She told us she vaxs her kids, but will respect that we don't.
It's nice to feel that you & your ped can be on the same page...what's best for your child!

I think that a great many doctors are becoming enlightened like a great number of parents! At least that's what I'm praying for!!!

That's great.  Our back-up Dr is that way.  And even our primary will do what i want even if he doesn't like it.

 Monkey's doctor when we first looked into vaccines and decided against them told us the same thing.

Now I have a vaccine nazi for a doctor... He can push all he wants. It's not changing my view.
