My DD was born fine but got vaccine injured at her 2 m/o appointment. I had no clue it was from the vax and we continued vaxing until she was 9 m/o. She is STILL recovering and she is 2.5 y/o.
The first year of her life was living hell. She cried 4-8hours a day, nursed every 30 mins, never slept, was in constant pain, had seizures, ALWAYS sick etc. This time we will not vax the new baby and are REALLY hoping to avoid anything close to what we went through with her.
Thankfully through attachment parenting and my never giving up on her she is very secure and attached independent child today. Happiest most social kid you could meet!
I can't help but fear another high needs baby. I know my DD was an extreme case b/c of her reactions but I do know regular high needs babies exist too. I juts feel like I NEED this baby to be laid back and easy going in order to heal from all my trauma with DD.
I literally still cry thinking about her first year of life. It was very traumatizing all around. To boot my whole family thinks it's b/c of how I parented her and not the vax...they already say I need to do things different b/c all DD did was cry all day. Yeah she cried all day it's a vax injury to develop that God awful high pitched absolute SCREAMING for HOURS a day.
Anyway just nervous about it all and wondering if anyone is on this road with me..
