I am very lucky to have a pediatrician who respects our choices for our son. We have chosen to selectively vaccinate and delay. Which i find to be the hardest if we were completely against or for i feel like i could stop researching like a crazy lady. What we think our plan for now is dtap at 6 months based on pediatrician recommendation of doing before he is mobile and playing outside. Hopefully skipping some all together (ex if he gets wild chickenpox before 12). And delaying others until he has greater risk (ex hepatitis). My pediatrician is on board in fact these are his suggestions based on that we ebf, he isn't in daycare, and will do any needed vaccines before traveling out of country. Are there any obvious things I am missing? Any suggestions of foods I should try to eat before his vaccine to help his little immune system? Thanks!

A diet rich in vital nutrients and minerals is always a good idea. It has been shown that vitamin C is a protective, so if I were vaccinating an exclusively breast fed baby (disclosure: I do not vaccinate), I would ensure I am eating foods high in vit C. You can also give it to the baby mixed in breast milk, I would give it in the form of sodium ascorbate. 


I really like this series of articles on infant immunity by Hilary Butler, she gives great insight into to the immature immune system and the importance of breast feeding.
