I'm new here and have a lot to learn. I'm glad I found this site and hope that I can make some changes in my current ways as a result of what I learn.
We delayed the MMR for my son, who is now 2.5. My pediatrician is pushing hard to get him his MMR. She is truly concerned about my son catching one of these diseases, but I can't help think that there is something else motivating her to pressure us for this vaccination (a whole other thread, though).
Anyway, on to my question, he was scheduled to get his MMR and the day before he came down with an ear infection. Pediatrician put him on antibiotics, I delayed it but the infection became intense and we went ahead with the antibiotics. He finishes his antibiotics tomorrow evening and I was told to make an appointment for the MMR for next week. I'm concerned about giving him the MMR so close to when he had antibiotics and was sick. I have been giving him probiotic supplements throughout -- but I'm still concerned. Is it reasonable to be concerned, or am I just being overly cautious?
Thanks in advance for reading this and I look forward to some responses.
