Good for you. Your DD is lucky! I have cut out wheat, eggs, milk, nuts and fish to continue breastfeeding my 18-month-old. No plans to wean any time soon. So what if I am stuck eating only the expensive dark chocolate? Such a hardship! Sorry people aren't more supportive.

The only reason to give the hep B vax at birth is if the mother has it. They recommend it for all babies to catch undiagnosed cases, but if you are sure you do not have hep B, I would skip it. We declined it and had no problems. No one tried to push us on the issue while we were at the hospital.

I had no vaccinations as a child. I've had pertussis, rubella, and chicken pox. I later got the MMR, DTaP, meningoccocal, typhoid, IPV, and hep B vaxes as a teenager/adult.

I think this is only tangentially related because the original statement is not talking about philosophical possibilities or metaphysics, but about observational evidence. If you consider "2+2 always equals 4" to be empirical knowledge (as opposed to being derived from the axioms of addition), then the...
