well I can tell you I completely regret vaxing. I had an un-medicated birth to a beautiful healthy baby...when she was 2 m/o she got her first vax ( i didnt want to but cracked under pressure i was 21 and the Dr treated me like an idiot) she got sick right away...i vaxed her until she was 9 m/o and she was sick from the time she was 2 m/o until 9 m/o no lie. everything under the sun virus after virus, blood in her stool, stomach problems, intolerances, roseola, some real scary virus too that ended us up in the hospital...in between being "better" it was always a cold which lead to sinus infections ect ect
I finally put my foot down at 10 m/o when my BFing SAH child was sick yet again and the Dr said oh i think we should give her her flu shots today and maybe give her next vax a little early b/c she gets sick so much. I practically ran out of there.
I have never vaxed her since and she is 15 m/o. so she had not had a vax since 9 m/o so in 6 months she has had 2 colds and 1 virus.
you can not imagine my relief. all the worry I endured all the freaking out of WHY WHY WHY is my child so sick. my FF friends baby in daycare is waaaaaaaaaay less sick than DD (but still pretty sick), then one day it clicked it was her body's reaction to the vax. I just knew if I stopped vaxing her she would get better.
As of 2 months after her last vax she gut healed and there was NO MORE BLOOD in her stool for the first time since she was 2 m/o she was no longer in pain. she used to scream in her sleep it hurt so badly. she went to countless Drs and I on countless diets. Then one day I *felt* she was better and took some stool to the Dr NO BLOOD her first stool ever tested that had no blood in it.
I started slowly adding things back to my diet.....no reactions at all with anything!
I regret cracking under pressure completely, I feel like I failed her injecting her with that poison. Every single time my instincts told me NO DON'T DO IT..but the Drs kept pushing and pushing and I was afraid.
we were just at the hospital the other day (b/c the one virus she had is the one she has right now, and she got it from me) her pedi sent us there (apparetly b/c she wasnt vaxed so she was scared but I didn't know that was why...) and the nurse says is she up to date on her vaccines? I said no I stopped at 9 m/o. she says and why is that? just because?
OOOH I was pissed I said no I have done extensive research and feel it is in my daughter's best interest.
she didnt say anything..
anyways good luck I hope you win hubby over. I just told mine, my instincts were going off and I'm not vaxing again. He trusts me enough to know I wouldn't endanger her.
