Mostly I think it means one should be wary of oversimplified statements and generalizations, as a single counter-example can prove them false.
For a really long time I thought that the word "misled" was the past tense of "to misle."

Quote: Originally Posted by kidspiration doesn't the fact that each and every selective and delayed vaxer comes up with their own schedule mean that some of you, at one time or other, is going against the "evidence"? Not necessarily. It is entirely possible for the evidence to support a range of acceptable schedules. It's not like there is research out there that says you must get X vaccine at 12 months plus or minus 2 days.
My experience is that every mother thinks her own baby is the best, so I wouldn't stress too much about it.

I think it is good to get what protection you can against pertussis early. And even if the mortality rate after 6 months is lower, that doesn't mean it's not still a serious...
Quote: Originally Posted by mamaniknik I have nursed 10 children so I have lots of experience. If you are breastfeeding without supplement or your baby is eating but still nurses a lot (like at will, several times a day) your cycle won't return. Once your baby starts nursing less (like 3-4 times a day or less) your cycle will return. I wish that were true for everyone. I got my period back at 6 weeks despite exclusively breastfeeding and...
