Oh I Love True North! It didn't even occur to me to check with them! Thank you so much. Have you actually had it done yet, isaakspacifier? I'm just curious. Did your child have any reactions? Is there anything different about the vaccine compositions of the separate doses besides the fact that they are separate? Apparently, the state/school "requires" 2 doses of MMR. I am trying to go by Stephanie Cave's delayed vax schedule (What Doctors May Not Tell You About...
I am desperate to find a doctor's office who has the MMR vaccines as separate doses (meaning, one for mumps, one for measles, one for rubella, as opposed to the big MMR vax as one dose). My understanding is that they can still be obtained this way, but most doctors' offices do not carry it because it's very expensive, has to be purchased in lots of 10 (or more), and there is very little demand for it. (It doesn't even occur to most parents to do only one vax at a time and...

If I cut-off all the friends and family members who think I'm weird for nursing for 3 years or for nursing at all, I would only have a couple friends left.

Twinklefae, I think there's a huge difference between offering popsicles to a 4yo and 8yo and sticking a lollipop into a baby's mouth.
