i know what you mean! i do vax but i made up my own schedule's for my kids
well my first was full vaxed on time with NO ill effects so that helps a bit, then my dd2 i had vaxed one vax at a time starting at 4 months then didn't to chicken pox till she had to have it for school. she actually LIKES getting shots..shes strange lol but when her older sister got shots for K she cried cause she wanted a shot to!! and she has never cried getting them!!
my son i did the same thing one at a time.. he doesn't like them at all..so ut the window with my one shot at a time makes them like them theory lol
i actually for got that caroline will be getting vax'ed soon ( actually i think we are starting at her 2 month appointment this week), it scares me but like you i would be so made if she got one of these things and i could of prevented it.. but then i am so scared of hurting her if i do get it... ugg I HATE this part of being a mom lol
i am going to start with the hib since its a pretty low risk vax. i do, do the DtaP i would rather it be broken down but i also hate to jump thru hoops to get it that way
Pertussis is very scary and still pretty common around here i know several homeschool none vax familys that have had it go thru there household at least just a few years ago and that really made me glad that i got it for my children.
but my biggest reason for doing them is that i send my children to public school and first its required ( yeah i know there are ways around it but..) second being in such a large population of children daily i feel they are more at risk and need protection.
also we skip silly things like Hep b chicken pox till they are older and never get things like prevnar or that new one for girls i won't get them ever.
ok anyway thats what i do and honestly i really once i have decided what i am going to do i try not to read about vaxs cause sometime its scares the crap outta me and i would rather be dumb about some things....( and yes i know that sounds stupid lol)
