Homeschooling mama to 6 year old DD.
Tricia, mama of dd (6)
FWIW, DS cried at the 18 month shots as soon as he saw the needle, but never cried at all for the 2 year shots. A month later, we took him in for the flu shot and again, not only no tears, but he calmly watched the whole thing (braver than his daddy!). I think because he's now obsessed with fixing things, he found the whole experience to be too fascinating to be upset. You never can tell!
Thanks everyone, it's great to read the different feedback.
Nan's mom, mysticmomma and alegna: Thanks for the gentle nudges to wait on the vaccines. I am definitely thinking more on that.
I also definitely can appreciate not wanted to be "bullied" for deciding to vaccinate. I did do all vacs for my DD except the MMR. After reading up on it, I regret it. My DS got his hep B and oral rotavirus before I read the book, both of which I wish I could take back. I am still undecided on what I am going to do about the rest of their vacs (delay or not give at all). I am so torn!! I feel like vacs are bad for kids, but I would kill myself if one of my babes contracted a disease b/c I didn't.
If I would give you any advice, just don't do both vacs the same day. It is a lot healthier on the system to only do 1 vac at a time.
I respect whatever you decide to do, I'm in the same boat.
