Since the dreaded 2 month appointments are coming up soon, is anyone doing a delayed schedule for vaccinations? I haven't decided yet, but I'm wondering how pediatricians respond to that. For BTDT moms that did, were they ok with it or did they give you any trouble with disagreeing?

my ped (who I love) wont even take on patients who dont follow the recommended schedule since he believes its unsafe. He told me he did allow it a few years ago when the jury was out on the impact of vaccinations but now that all the data has proven otherwise, he doesn't want to help putting any more children at risk.

not that i would have delayed anyway - aside from not wanting to increase her exposure to fatal but preventable diseases, the recommended schedule and mix has been tested while delaying has not so I'd rather not test something out on her.

We had her 2 month appointment last week. My ped asked what we wanted to do about shots and after I rambled that it seemed like a lot at once and asked what he thought he said that several of them don't make sense at this age at all. He also agreed that it was a lot at once and said what he would recommend is just getting 1 or 2 at a time if I don't mind coming in more often, which I don't. We did the dtap at that appointment. We will do another 1 or possibly 2 this friday. Then the week after that we will do the 1 remaining that we will be doing. We aren't doing hep b til daycare or preschool and are not doing rotovirus at all. So we need to fit in hib hcv and ipv. I think we are doing hib next and hcv. Then doing ipv the appt after.

I'm still on the fence on what she'll be getting and how delayed they'll be.

My mom just about jumped out of her skin when I said we were gonna delay and refuse some shots.

Not sure how my doc feels about it.

So funny that this is the first post I see. I have not been on JM much lately as I have been spending most of my spare time researching vaccinations with my LO's appointment coming up (it was yesterday).

My doctor seemed just fine with my choices. I have decided to pretty much follow the adapted schedule where you only get two at at time and only one that contains aluminum at a time and delay all ones that can be delayed and not do any of these big combo shots.

We had the rotovirus yesterday (it's not a shot!!) and I was going to get the DTap too..... but the brand they use wasn't the one I wanted, so I chose to hold off to see if I can get it done elsewhere. We will be going in in a month for HIB and Pc.

I've been doing A LOT of research on this subject lately. A friend gave me a WONDERFUL book that is unbias called the Vaccine Book by Dr. Sears. So much information!!

After many months of research - I have decided that I am a believer in vaccinating..... I do want to protect my child AND protect others (not only my child). I do believe there are possible risks with vaccinations though, so I want to limit those possible risks as much as possible. I am therefore following the majority of the adaptive schedule. If anyone wants me to tell you what that is, I will happily. I don't think I will be allowing any flu vaccines though.

We use the Dr Sears schedule which is what is described in the previous post. Our pedi is okay with it.

We also do a modified vaccine sched that is very close to the Dr Sears sched; my pediatrician actually gave me the handout on the Dr Sears sched at one of my first appts with my first born so she is obviously very supportive of an alternative sched. I'll have to look, but I think it's either dTAP and rotovirus or dTAP and HIB (we do two at a time).

We're still trying to decide what to do too... Either way makes me very nervous. We'll definitely be following an alternative schedule and having some of the vax, but I'd really like to delay having any of them until she's at least a year old. I'm staying home with her and DH works at home so we don't get exposed to much. But we're still debating....

Our pediatrician is great and will work with us no matter what we decide. She is really pushing both the pertussis and meningitis vaxes though.

Can I ask why you declining the rotovirus?

THe reason I ask is because my best friends son caught a rotovirus, and as a result of the severe dehydration had a seizure that stopped his breathing. He is okay now thank goodness (daddy knew infant cpr!) but it was scary as hell. So its one of the ones Im most eager to have out of the way. Just curious if there is something I don't know about it.

Our doctor said it wasn't worth the risk in our case or in infants who don't go to daycare or childcare of some sort. Basically was the first thing he said after we started talking about which vaccines we wanted to do. I'm not concerned about it. If our circumstances changed and she had to start going to daycare I would likely get it for her. It has a higher risk of seizures than most vaccines do and a risk of bowel obstruction in a somewhat large group of infants. Of course all risks are comparatively small but just not worth it in our case.

Are US vaccinations different from Canada? Getting very confused... This is the schedule for my province. I'd like to do a spread out schedule for these.

Immunization Results
This is the routine schedule for healthy infants and children under 6 years of age living in Alberta.

Your child is 1 months old (0 years old).

You should anticipate the following vaccinations for your child:

2 months oldDTaP-IPV-Hib: Diphtheria, Tetanus, Whooping Cough, Polio, Hib
Men-C: Meningococcal disease
Pneu-C-13: Pneumococcal disease

4 months old DTaP-IPV-Hib: Diphtheria, Tetanus, Whooping Cough, Polio, Hib
Men-C: Meningococcal disease
Pneu-C-13: Pneumococcal disease

6 months old DTaP-IPV-Hib: Diphtheria, Tetanus, Whooping Cough, Polio, Hib
*Influenza: The flu

12 months old Men-C: Meningococcal disease
**MMRV: Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Varicella
Pneu-C-13: Pneumococcal disease

18 months old DTaP-IPV-Hib: Diphtheria, Tetanus, Whooping Cough, Polio, Hib

4-6 years DTaP-IPV: Tetanus, Diphtheria, Whooping Cough, Polio

There probably is some differences from Can to US.
I wonder what BCs schedule is? Off to google.

Thank you soooo much for the delayed schedule above (Dr Sears). I def am delaying my sons vaccines. I declined the hospital vac too, so he hasn't had one yet. I don't understand why such young babies need so many all at once. :/

I most likely will use the delayed schedule as well. I want Tyler to be vaccinated,but 5 at once seems a bit much.
