This is the only place I could think of coming to where people might understand.
I've read books, scoured the internet, talked to family, friends, doctors, debated, soul searched and listened to my instincts. Know what I came up with? Nothing. SFA.
I wanted to delay to a year, go with a less aggressive alternative schedual and maybe opt out of a couple.
We had our first appointment with our new doctor today. I had a long discussion with him about disease and fear mongering on both ends. He's undoubtably pro vax but pretty reasonable about it. My concerns were not addressed but I don't really blame him, I just don't think they've been addressed period, anywhere. In the end, our 13 month old ended up with his first round of shots (I ended up with a tetanus shot as well) and is being fast tracked to be up to date. He was a trooper, didn't even bat an eyelash
I feel confused, scared and a little angry but mostly, I'm just tired. I tried so hard to not make a decision based on fear but that's exactly what I did today. I cried all the way home. I'm so grateful for my husband, who's been my only support through this. He would have been content to follow the regular schedual but told me to do what I felt best. Well, I didn't do what I felt best and I'm a little ashamed but I was so confused and tired and I just caved. I dearly hope all that thought and effort was a complete waste of time and that my son remains a happy, healthy boy.
I just really needed to get that off my chest. Maybe I can get some sleep now. Thank you for reading.

HUGS!!! Maybe take another look at dr.sears' schedule? Why fast track to get him up to date...you have time....otherwise...if you feel most comfortable vaccinating now...then you should do it! While I personally wont be vaccinating...the big deal to me is informed consent. You know what you are doing and have researched it adn know what is in the vaccines...etc....so you are well informed....HUGS hon...dont lose sleep....it's still not too late if you have changed your mind....and you've done a huge blessing for your son...just waiting a year makes a big difference in how they will react within his body. HUGS

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.

Thank you guys, you're both absolutely right.
My husband and I have had some long talks and have come to an agreement.
Thanks for your support
