babys getting vaccinated? i know A LOT of moms who choice not to with their kids
me personally i think EVERY child should get them! as my pedi said "if someone elses child dont get their vaccines they r putting other kids in danger" --not sure how i felt bout that, but i do agree every baby shld get them but its ur right as a parent to choose not to do it!
whats your thoughts on it?

I think I'm bored.  We vax to the max though.  Dogs are vax'd.  We treat the lawn, the trees.  If we can prevent anything, we do.

I don't feel the benefits outweigh the risks. I would rather trust a healthy immune system.  I didn't always feel this way because I used to not realize I had a choice. And I had never researched what was in vaccines and the reactions.  And then my 3rd DD suffered brain swelling from her 2 month shots and her personality began to change.  So I am not going to start injecting DD#4 to find out if she will react too.

There should be ever high restrictions on what there are now. I believe you should only be medically exempt.

For us, with my girl's health issues being taken into account, they were and still are the right choice. I talked to all of her doctors about them and looked into them a bit. I have no real reason to look into them more because Kyra is and will remain an only so no more babies. I do know you can get exemptions for school if you don't vax. Not sure how or where or how it works since I've never loked into that part.
