I am so glad to find a non-vaxing forum! I sometimes feel like a loner when it comes to not vaxing my baby.
My son is 4 months old and just had his well-check..which may be the last well check I take him too. I have doctor hopped because the first well check the doctor would not see us anymore if we didn't vaccinate. The second gave me grief and said I would have to sign something if I decided not to vaccinate. So, we took him to our family doctor which is a great doctor. He was much nicer about it than the others but he still tried to push the Pollio and Pertusses vaccines. He said the others weren't that important.
He listened to why I didn't want to have the vaccines and finally just stopped asking me and let it go. Anyway, so I am wondering..do you go to well checks if you don't vacccinate? They seem like a waste of time to me. I can tell if my baby is growing or anything weird is going on.
The other issue I had is that the doctor likes to give parenting advice which I don't agree with. He told my four month old should be putting himself to sleep and I just need to put him in bed and let him cry if he cries. I 'm sorry but he is four months old! I mean, I can see possibly doing this when he is a year old or something...but I am not going to stop rocking my four month old. Besides, I love that time with him! I didn't even mention to him that we co-sleep right now. I am sure that would have gone over well! Besides, my baby is a great sleeper who falls asleep easily and I really don't see any reason to do anything that could mess that up. He sleeps and my husband and I sleep. It works lol.
Anyway, I love this doctor, he actually helped me get pregnant because I have PCOS but I wish doctors would just let parents be parents and stop telling us what we should be doing.
Okay rant over! Anyway I look forward to the discussions!!
