My DS is coming up on 15 months and he will be getting his MMR vaccine then. This is the one that makes me nervous. So far, he only had his dtaps without any complications. Nothing else. He is following the 1983 schedule with a little bit of a delay. His first vaccine was at 6 months and then at 8 months, and then at 10 months. I am still breastfeeding him. What I am planning to do days before the vaccine is to give some cod liver oil and probiotics daily (I already give him probiotics daily through yogurt). Is there anything else I can do for him to lessen any complications that might come up? Suggestions are welcome!

How do I prepare DS for MMR?post #1 of 31/8/12 at 12:19pmThread Starterpost #2 of 31/8/12 at 8:06pm
Do you have to give him the MMR now? Can't you wait until he is ready to start kindergarten? The 1983 schedule called for the vaccine to be given at 15-18 months.
He is now at an age where neither measles, mumps, nor rubella are likely to be a major problem for him. However, those diseases do tend to be much more severe and dangerous for adults.
The children who are at risk for complications from measles are deficient in Vitamin A, and children who are at risk for vaccine reactions AND/OR compliacations from any virus are often vitamin D-deficient.
you might want to do a search on vitamin deficiency and immune system, or vitamin deficiency and vaccine reaction.post #3 of 31/10/12 at 6:37pm
The measles portion is more effective if given at 18 months or later.
If I were forced to give my child the MMR, I would give a megadose of vitamin A for 2 days beforehand. 400,000 IU each day. This would be from pure vitamin A, as getting it from cod liver oil would be too much oil, and too much vitamin D.
