That said, a great immunity boosting cocktail that they did recommend is this:

Black Elderberry Extract 1-2 tsp daily

Vit. D3 4000 IU

Emergen-C 1000mg (power you can buy in the supermarket)

 

All this taken daily.

 

I did with my son and never once got sick. Not a cold, not a sniffle, not a nothing. I can't recommend it enough. We're susceptible to colds all the time just be being pregnant. If you decide to get the flu shot or not, definitely try this regimen for a healthy winter.

I'm not one of those that doesn't believe that H1N1 exists...it does. But I wonder about the number of incidents that have been reported. The reason being that the CDC stopped all testing to verify the strain fairly early on in the spread of the illness.

No.  I don't believe that the chemicals in many vaxes are good for little bodies (or big bodies either)...I am certainly not putting it in my baby weighing less than a pound or two.

I never get it anyway (except I did get the H1N1 two winters ago because my DD was less than six months old) but other than that I don't regularly get a flu shot, so I don't see why I'd get one now.  I'd actually be far less inclined to get one now.  I just would be too stressed out over it.

Let me know what you end up thinking about vaccinations!

I just started doing my research...and Im frightened, scared, overwhelmed. I never had ANY growing up...and am leaning towards that with this little one...

but want to make an educated decision. Im curious as to what you find out!
