My daughter is 2 years old and she has gotten all her vaccinations, although she started at about 4 months instead of 2 and she was always pretty late on everything just because I never made her appointments on time

So, Phineas is almost 2 months old and he has his well baby checkup on the 26th. I do NOT want to go in there and have his poor little body injected with every single shot they have like they usually do, but I need to decide which ones I want him to have and which ones not to have. I have heard the Dr. Sears book is really good, does anyone know if I can get it at Borders or Barnes & Noble? I want to buy it and read it before his appointment. I can order it on Amazon if I need to though...

And any other good resources for delayed/selective vax schedules? I wasn't sure if there was a sticky somewhere.

Oh, and BTW the only shot he has had is the vitamin K, I declined the first hepatitis shot because I didn't see a need for it.

I have heard good things about the Dr. Sears schedule as well. Have you talked with your pediatrician about this at all? I ask because I wanted my second son to have less vaccines at a time, and although my pediatrician assured me there was no reason to space them out, he respected my choice to do so and was very helpful in coming up with an alternate schedule. I also declined the hospital HepB shot with both my kids and did them at 2 months instead.

Thanks ladies, I'm going to try and get my hands on the Dr. Sears book, I really want to do my research before I talk to the pediatrician. At the hospital when he was born the nurse said the hep B was "totally optional" and they were fine with whatever I wanted to do. Now he's going to be seen for his regular appointments at the military hospital and you never really know who you're gonna get with them. Sometimes you get an actual pediatrician and sometimes you get a physician's assistant...their primary care managers rarely have appointments available when we need them so we end up seeing someone different. It's very annoying!
