I would like opinions on wheather to vaccinate or to not vaccinate. My daughter has already gotten her two month shots but I am not sure if I want her to get anymore. I would like to know pros and cons, and also why you chose to vaccinate or to not. Please HELP!

I vaccinated both of my children. My first child was on time. My second child wa on a slower schedule simply because we moved and I had to find a good pediatrician. I think the risk involved with the toxins in vaccines is outweighed by the diseases they could get. my girls, thankfully, are very healthy. I also keep them on omega gummy vitamins and keep their diets full of veggies. Good luck! Try not to worry too much :)

I vaccinated my son, mostly on schedule (some delays because of him having  a cold at the time, etc).  I trust them.  I not only want to protect my son, but the kids out there that are medically fragile and unable to be vaccinated.

I don't believe all the scary stuff about vaccinations being bad or even potentially bad. What I made my decision on was, how would I feel if I didn't get my kids vaccinated and then the got those diseases? I'd feel super guilty and like a bad parent.

However, later I got lazy. Like middle school time? Then I got whopping cough but they hadn't been updated against that. OMG, I felt so bad.

I vaccinated at a slower pace.  One shot per visit only.  I researched the hell out of vaccines which you should too.  You have to read up on it and make your own decision.  I am glad I did what I did.  I never agreed to giving a kid so many vaccines at once.  I also only gave what was necessary for school.  You also need to find a pediatrician who won't bully you.  I had to switch when my son was a baby since his 1st pediatrician was an asshole.

 I don't think anyone is catching polio with or without the vaccines.

Lol it's because of vaccination that Polio is no longer a threat in most places. There are impoverished countries that can't afford widescale vaccination where it still exists.
