So my DF and I have decided to delay vaccination.

Including the Vitamin K shot..

Were having a boy.

Heres my question...

Can we return to the hospital once baby Bruce is clotting to preform the circumcision?

How would that work?

i believe it should be ok, but i would double check. is there a circ board here? I know there is/was a not-circing board but i have a girl and really do not pay attention I wish we waived the Vit K, that is the only thing she got, we waived all vaxes and eye ointment. She got quite jaundice and after i learned it can cause jaundice.

Ask your OBGYN, she/he is likely the one who would be doing it.

My son was born in a birth center and did not have vit K but we returned a week later for his circ (which I totally regret, but that's another issue...)

Most places have you return a few days-a week later to have them cut. That is what happened with both of my boys. (regret here too, different story as well)

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.
