hello! im in s.jersey, we go all the way up to stockton in central jersey to see dr freedenfeld at stockton family practice. he has a modified vax sched to begin with, but is completely accepting of no vax, which is our path. im not worried about being close to a ped, i handle colds and flus and all those things at home. good luck!
there will be no fight with dr freedenfeld, rest assured. a book i recomend is by Aviva Jill Romm, "Naturally Healthy Babies and Children". even if you are new to herbs, i think this book is a comfortable book of remedies for any mother. as women, as mothers, we must listen to our Intuition. if we have allowed it to be quieted for long, we must quiet the other voices and allow our guiding voice to return. in a healthy child, a cold or flu is not anything to worry about, it is a healthy response by a healthy immune system. i imagine you may want to look into detoxifying the childs body and rebuilding natural immunity.
health and happiness on your way!
