I am sure that some of my family would react this way too. But I don't discuss it with them. to you! You are making the right choice for your daughter. That is all that matters.

You are not alone. I think all of us that don't vax/delay vax face opposition. Sometimes you feel so alone and then are made to feel CRAZY for making the decision that you are.... in times like those I just come here!
For me, I feel like having my daughter brought me to a fork in the road. One path (the vaccine/formula fed) is very well worn - there are lots and lots and lots of people heading down that path. The other path(no vax/breastfeeding) is grown up, weedy - not at all a well worn path and that is the path I'm headed down. It scares me at times but I always unearth some nugget on this board...either a website/video/CDC fact that proves to me that I am indeed on the right path though it may not be the most popular!

she doesn't put her kids in seatbelt in the car? wow, that's child endangerment. you should notify someone about that. or at least talk to her about it. for the kids safety.

Not vaccinating is not against the law.

However, depending upon your state's seat belt laws, your SIL may very well be breaking the law for not placing her children in appropriate restraints.

How very rich of her to point an accusatory finger at you. And I could see how it could bother you, so vent away, mama!

Meanwhile, I would stop discussing your child's vaccination (or non vaccination ) status. It truly is none of her business.
