Im so glad your taking questions! I love all of your books & use your website all the time,you have some great information.I just want to say its so refreshing finding a Dr who uses both natural & conventional treatments.And talks openly about vaccines,its so rare to find that in a pediatrician.
I have a 6 month old son & a 5 year old daughter.My son is breastfeed & i plan on breastfeeding him until he is 2 than however long he wants to after that.Im also a stay at home mom. My daughter is partially vaccinated as an infant.She hasnt been vaccinated in about 4 years.My son has had no vaccines.My only concern with not having any vaccines for my son, is when my daughter starts school this year. My biggest worry is whooping cough.The disease & the vaccine scare me! So my first question is, through my research i have found the vaccine doesnt prevent transmission ,just lessens the severity of the disease ...is their any truth to this? Is the disease less sever in older children? And at what age would you say whooping cough wouldnt be a huge concern any more? Iam so torn right now on this decision, so if you have any feedback,quidance it would be greatly appreciated.I have a good Dr they have respected & supported my choice not to vaccinate, but they really dont like to engage in the conversation.
I was thinking about getting the hib & pc at 18 months, so he will only need one shot of each correct?
