hello did any of you refuse newborn shots? if so why and how was it taken by the hospt and your doctors? Im leaning towards refusal of the shots and taking vitamin k so my breastmilk has it but im wondering about peoples experiences with refusal and how it went down? 

thanks Qualyn

I refused everything with both my kids (we follow dr sears) found a pedi before birth that was on the same page as me. Hospital made me fill out a form saying I refused.

Dont worry about how anyone takes it, it's your choice. Look into what forms you may need in advance and have them ready.

We refuse everything. If you can get your pediatrician to sign off on it, and both write it into the birth plan and verbally ask (nicely) the nurses and ob doc, it wasn't a problem.

I stopped vaccinating after my oldest was almost killed by a reaction. My twins are completely unvaccinated. I set up a religious exemption for them. No one really cared.

I had my baby at home so I didn't need to worry about it. But it's your right to say no.

We refused the vaccine, vit k, and eye goop.
I had to sign that I didn't want it and that I knew all about it. They tried to talk me into them but nope.

I breast feed but still get her shots... All I been told you can refuse but you have to sign forms for your reasoning of why you refuse them ://
