Do you wait the 6 weeks, or just til you feel like yourself again.

HHmmmm. I always waited the six weeks. But more because I was exhausted and the six weeks was as long as I could hold off my dh. LOL

The earliest was 3 weeks, the longest 5, but that was the one I had my appendix out 10 days after birth.

I think it was two weeks, then six weeks, then ten weeks. I had a hard recovery with #3 though.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
