My dd is 3 and she's starting to nurse less frequently- some days not at all, others 4-5 short times, most days 1-3 short times. When she was little we choose not to vax her in part because of the protection of nursing and being at home, but now she's just starting preschool (5 hrs/wk) and not nursing much, and I'm worrying. Do you re-think vaccinating when your child weans? My dd takes a multi-vitamin and eats a fairly healthy diet, but is there something else I should be doing to help her stay healthy? For what it's worth, she seems fine; I'm just a worrier, I guess!

No your fine. My siblings and me (6 of us) were never vaccinated and never got sick. I used to be bummbed because my friends always got to miss school cause they were sick and I never got to. Her immune systems has reaped the benefits of breastfeeding and she will have a much stronger one because of it. I would jsut teach her good hand washing habits and so on.
