I think it's a great idea! I almost died from a vaccine reaction at age 5. I haven't had another vaccine since and I'm completely healthy. I almost never get sick.

Lol I don't know. My first son had the first 3 bunches (whatever they were). He didn't get his 1 yr. We didn't do the delay schedule. My other 2 boys didn't get any at all. They are all now 6,5, and 2.5. I was thinking about starting spread out schedule. At least for the older 2. But I haven't looked into it further.
Why he want to stop?
Should I start?

I, personally, believe some vaccines are important, and some are not, therefore, we do a selective and delayed vaccine schedule.
It is all up to you. Do your research onI both sides and follow your gut! :)

We do not vax at all and my kids are drastically healthier than their peers here.  My kids have literally almost never sick.  They are not necessary at all.  Vaccines are fully of all sorts of chemicals and other substances like aborted fetal tissue that has no business being in their kids bodies.  The side effects are usually much much worse than getting any of the illnesses that vaccines are supposted to prevent.

I say it's all about family preference. You should also talk to your kids drs. I know certain vaccines are required to put kids in schools/daycares. That's something to look into... Find out what's needed or required. Vacs won't prevent some things but they can help lessen length and symptoms.

he wants to stop because it seems like it does more harm then good. Doctors seem to scare you or push you into getting vaccines, and the more we read about it the more we are leaning against it.  Hearing all about these kids who are perfectly healthy without vaccines helps make that decision to stop.  the only one i might consider finishing is the DTAP.  he has one shot left in that one, and whooping cough sounds like it is going around.
