Do you think waiting till a child is closer to school-age to start vaxing makes a difference health-wise? The brain grows the most in the first year of life, which is why I'm firmly against introducing it to toxins during that stage of life...but after it's grown more and isn't so fragile/constantly changing, do you think the harmful consequences of vaccinations are less? (i.e. autism, SIDS, etc)

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question. But WV doesn't have ANY waivers which I can sign to send the kids to public school, and I never really wanted to homeschool. I just need opinions!

by the time they are that age, all the childhood diseases wouldnt be a danger to them! pertussis, measles, rotavirus, all those are only deadly in very young babies. and by then, they may have been in contact with the disease enough to build up some immunity.

if i were you.. i wouldnt vaccinate my children, no matter what age they are.

I agree and personally I would move if I lived in a state like that. I know that isn't an option for some, but it is important enough to me to not have that crap in my child.

there is a local ped who does not vax any child under 2 because the blood-brain barrier are not formed until around 2. so if you do it after 2, then you have that in your favor.

are there really no options where you live?

There really aren't. West Virginia and one other state (maybe Mississippi? Or Missouri? I think it starts with an M, anyway) are the ONLY two states in the country which require children to be vaccinated to attend public school, and they don't offer any religious/philosophical waivers. It totally sucks. WV is just such a crappy place to live if you want to be a health-conscious mom with less-than-common ideals. (For instance, WV also has the highest rate of circumcision in the whole country, and I think one of the lowest rates of breastfeeding.) I really am considering moving and buying a house in PA right across the border.

If I was you I would not vax, even if that meant I had to move. But I am drastic like that.

Interesting the pedi does it that way. I read that's the standard age to start vaccines in China. Our country honestly seems to be one of few that likes to load infants up on vaccines like that.

I personally will never vaccinate any of my children, and wouldn't in your case either. I also would move state if I had to.

I'm thinking of homeschooling or sending Eve to a country school

The life of my child means more, I would not vaccinate whatsoever. I would either move or homeschool. Even if it helps a little too wait until the child is older, it won't help much... Vaccinations have tons of bad stuff, they don't just cause autism, they can cause other neurological issues, parkinson's, etc.
