I am still trying to find information on how people and doctors feel about vaccinating autistic children. I vaguely recall even on the show The Doctors they don't vaccinate kids with a genetic history of autism in their lineage and they are huge pro needlers.
My 2 year old has her well check tomorrow. She is unvaxed and autistic. She is not talking but has spurts of babbling which she is doing this week and I would hate to muck that all up. She is no where close to talking yet so when she babbles it's a big deal. My in laws are pushing to get her vaxed tomorrow but I don't want to stunt her already severely stunted self.
So while I obviously know vaccinations don't cause all autism.. what would their effects be an already autistic child?
I envision completely mucking her up and having a drooling baby who stops making progress altogether. She's eating noodles and looking at me so much more. Or the other side of dying from a vaccine preventable disease (rare I know but still and she has had to start school at a very young age. Throwing any homeschooling option out the window for now).
I am just not finding anything at all about this situation out on the internet! Maybe I've got the wrong google wording.
Maybe I should also mention she had her first cold in over a year (just HAD to lick the blocks at school but the cold was no biggie) and she is virtually allergic to everything. Still trying to calm down this strawberry rash. She's also allergic to potatoes and tomatoes and we don't eat gluten. I think she's gotten over her milk allergy actually. And she's allergic to other stuff.. we're trying to figure it out (bad excema).
