The CDC recommends giving a flu shot to all kids 6 months and older. Are you ladies going to give your baby a flu shot?

Probably not, but we aren't a big flu shot family. However last year I and my son got one for the first time, so I could be convinced. I don't like giving baby any more shots than necessary- I'll probably see what the scene is like at daycare.

None of us will get it. Absolutely not.

Yes. My DH is immunocompromised due to treatments for a chronic condition that he has, so all of us will get the flu shot.

Are you pumping for your little one? Planning to pump?
Have a question or need support? BTDT and have wisdom to share?

I don't normally get the flu shot. I got it 2 years ago because I was nursing, and she was still little. Then I got it last year because I was pregnant. None of my kids have ever had it. Assuming I'm not pregnant during flu season, I plan on bypassing it.

I get it most years because my office brings someone in to give them to us for free (not required but its so easy that I just do it). Last year my dr recommended it because I was pregnant. Baby A has her 6 month appt and shots today and I am going to talk to her pediatrician about it.

I don't think that we will give baby the shot but I think my husband and I are planning to get one.
