We're expecting our first in late April, and I'm looking for 2 things:

 

1)delayed & selective vaccine schedules (suggestions, things to avoid, things to know, etc.), and

2)pediatrician recommendations in/around Durham, NC

 

thanks in advance!

If you don't have hepatitis B, and you would know if you did, because every pregnant woman is tested, then you can delay the hepatitis B vaccine for your baby as long as you want. Other than from an infected mother to child during birth, it is primarily spread through illegal intravenous drug use and unprotected sex with infected partners.

 

The DTaP Vaccine, or any combination vaccine containing diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis, is less likely to cause asthma if the first dose is given at 4 months or later, rather than the usual 2 months old.

 

If you avoid the rotavirus vaccine until your baby is 6 months old, it will be too late to start the vaccine series. The doses are given in minimum 4 week intervals, and the last one cannot be given past 32 weeks. Because of this restriction, the rotavirus vaccine is not required for school in any state.

 

Avoid Tylenol before one year old, as it can increase the risk of asthma. Also, if you give Tylenol before or right after vaccination, it reduces the effectiveness of vaccines. It also increases the risk of vaccine adverse reactions. Tylenol reduces glutathione in the body, and glutathione helps the body to to detoxify after vaccination.

 

For doctor recommendations, you can ask in this forum. http://www.mothering.com/community/f/78/north-and-south-carolina-and-tennessee

We see Dr. Vines in Hillsborough, and they have been nothing but supportive with our selective vaxing.

I used to live in Cary, NC and we used Triangle Pediatrics... specifically Dr. Salter. She was recommended to us by someone I know. My kids were patients of hers back in 2009/2010... until we moved out-of-state. She was great and totally respected my choices and was cool with whatever we wanted to do. I know that Cary is a bit of a drive from Durham, but Dr. Salter was great. Definitely worth a look especially if you are having trouble finding someone closer to home. I have no idea about any of the other doctors in the practice, however.
