Ugggg! Where to begin? I have an 18 mo who has all the "required" vacinations up to this point. I didn't know any different and didn't question it. I now have a 2 month old who got her first 2 hep B shots - again because I didn't know any better. Then I start hearing about non vaxing and selective vaxing and I start researching it. I come here and learn from you, I do my own research and now I'm really concerned. I don't think I want any more vaccinations but I'm terrified. What happens if God forbid my child where to become ill because I didn't vax? But then what if they had a complication from vaxing? Which is worse? I'm really questioning vaxing but my DH is adamant that our children be vaxed. My father who is a doctor thinks I'm crazy for even thinking about not vaxing. I have absolutely no support and don't feel educated enough to talk credibly to my dr about it. I did switch doctors to another one in the practice who is studying homeopathy. That's all I know about her but I figure that's a good start. So........ How do you get over the fear that you might be putting your child in danger of getting a serious illness if you don't vax? Also, what did you tell your doctor? Did you have the support of your significant other? What about when they go to school? Also, is there any place where I can get credible facts to back me up to my doctor and DH? TIA!
