I was thinking about waiting to decide about the HIB until she was 15mo so she would only need 1 dose, but I am worried about it now.
Any advice? I have researched it extensively and most days I am confident in not getting the vaccine, but other days I am paranoid.
I do plan on breastfeeding until she is at least 2.
I asked him two questions. First I asked him about breastfeeding and HIB, I mentioned the Swedish? study and he didn't know anything about 'that' and said that he didn't think breastfeeding would help protect 'that much'. He also said that as soon as I was done there would be no protection for DD against HIB. This is contrary to what I have read and felt I needed to read more.
Second, I asked him if I got the vaccine now at 12 mo then again at 15mo would she be better protected after 15 mo than she would be if she only got the 15mo dose. So basically I was wondering if it compounded. He didn't know but assumed it would. This didn't make much sense to me. I want to read more on this as well.
