My Daughter is 19 months old. I am ready to wean for both physical and emotional reasons. I would like to take about two months to do it which will put her at around 21-22 months when I finish.

I nursed this long so I could put off vaccinations. But now that I am weaning, does that make certain vaccines important or crucial, especially if my daughter may be around other babies/children and she is not yet two. Is HIB or Pertussis a concern? When does Hib, PC and Pertussis no longer a concern? Please give advice, I need it.

Hib and Breastfeeding. Protection from Hib lasts even after breastfeeding stops.

I live in the 2nd largest city in the united states. My son was not vaxed and I took him everywhere. We were amongst the world a lot ...

Have you looked at the numbers of diseases?

Hib cases in the USA in 2009 with over 300 million population was:

hib B 25
non B 201
uknwn 213.

I think we have better odds at the lotto.

take a look at this report for more disease counts.
