I vaccinated my 2 oldest children and I had my 3rd baby 9 months ago. He was vaccinated at birth, 2 months and 4 months.. then I learned about the risks and my husband and I just kind of halted in any shots.. We aren't sure whether to delay, and if we delay what do we delay and for how long? Or do we choose to just stop all together?? Its all so confusing and I'm not really getting any straight answers online. He hasn't had any vax since 4 months old, so he skipped his 6 month and is 9 months now.... what do yall recommend?

I recommend doing your own research, and being sure of your decision =)

Here are some questions to answer for yourself in deciding about vaccination:

1. Name of the disease
2. Description of the disease
3. Length of time from initial infection to end of all symptoms
4. Infectious period
5. Normal symptoms of the disease
6. Known serious consequences of the disease
7. Proportion of persons infected developing serious consequences
8. Transmission route of the disease
9. Prevalence of the disease
10. Treatments of the disease and efficacy of those treatments
11. Relevant research about the disease
12. Name of the vaccine
13. Company that makes the vaccine
14. Contents of the vaccine
14A. The significance of whether or not the vaccine is live
15. History of development of the vaccine
16. Known side-effects of the vaccine and rate of incidence of those side-effects
17. Possible side-effects not yet acknowledged by the vaccine maker
18. Relevant research into the vaccine
19. How effective is the vaccine at preventing the disease?
20.What is the vaccine meant to do? (Many vaccines are not meant to prevent infection or transmission).
21.Number of cases reported each year.
22.Number of deaths reported each year from the vaccine and natural disease.

Dedicatedrider really posted all the links I was going to give you. No one here can answer what you should do. I have 3 children, none of them have ever gotten a vaccine, nor will them as long as I have a say. And they are the healthiest children I know.

Whatever you do, don't do anything until you are sure about your decision.  You can always vax later if you decide to, but you can't take it back if you do inject your child.  When in doubt, wait.  Educate yourself and make a decision YOU (and you children) can live with.

I agree with the above posts.  You need to do your own research with this.  In the end, you have to be satisfied and content with your own decision.  Don't do anything rash and don't let anyone pressure you into doing anything you're not ready to do - including your pediatrician!

Wanted to add homefirst.com

They have a lot of webinars on that site.  It was easier sometimes for me to see the information presented then to read it.

For references I like anything by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, or Mayer Eisenstein.  Also What your doctor may not tell you about childhood vaccinations.  That one has an update version.  You can get a ton of references from Amazon for cheap.  ;)

my suggestion would be to stop vaccinating until you do enough research that you are comfortable in making a decision. haha that sounds kind of silly to say but you get the idea :P
