How long was your baby fussy after the first round of shots? DD has been fussy for 4 days!!! She cries so much. No fever or anything, but I am so so tired and she just keeps waking and crying day and night.

Hi, I bumped two threads about reactions. I'm not sure if "fussy" is minor or serious, but hopefully the threads will give you an idea of what serious reactions are like, and if your DD isn't doing that sort of stuff, it is probably okay...I hope.

My daughter wasn't vaxed as an infant, plus she is now 40, so my first-hand experience wouldn't be helpful, but I didn't want to leave your query hanging.

Which vaccine? Was it the DTaP?

That vaccine is one of the most reactive being linked to SIDS and encephalitic cry.

If she is crying and upset and uncomfortable that much, 4 days is a long time for that to be going on. Unfortunately your doctor will probably say it's "normal". Please insist that a report to VAERS be filed and that the reactions are noted in her medical files.

If you decide to do any more vaccinations after this, just please be very, very careful. There are a few things I recommend for research near the bottom of my webpage linked below. I highly recommend doing as much research as you can before allowing any more vaccinations to be done.

Here is an older thread on the Encephalitic Cry:

http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=618983.

"It should be a rule in all prophylactic work that no harm should ever be unnecessarily inflicted on a healthy person (Sir Graham Wilson, The Hazards of Immunization, 1967)."

So why bother? If your gut tells you that it could be dangerous, then maybe you would want to rethink it.

I have three grandchildren who are (almost) vaccine free.

My oldest was vaccinated up to 15 mo and has not had a vaccine since then. He showed so many signs of autism that it scared the ....out of us. He is 10 y. old now and has outgrown all of them.

My other two grandchildren are completely vaccine free and are the healthiest kids in all of their play groups.

None of the kids have ever had abx btw.

DS got his first round of shots at 2 years, 10 months old. He was slightly feverish and out of sorts for a day or two- but he was also old enough to verbalize what he felt.

Remember that you don't have to do the next round of vaccines at 4mo- you're the mother and you can delay them if you're not comfortable giving them to your baby during infancy.

Why would you do it if you're dreading it?

I'm so glad that my dd is unvaxed- I never had to watch her suffer the reactions.

DD had the same experience at two months. It was on a Friday, and she was so different the whole weekend. Happened again at four months. It was the only time in her whole life where she refused to latch. It made me cry. If you do want your dd to get the whole DTaP round, wait until she is older. It is a pretty dangerous vaccine and older kids (ages 2+) are much more equipped to handle it. We will not be finishing DD's schedule.

Gut instinct is how a lot of mamas here started questioning vaccines.

For future reference....

Children are "required" to get vaccinations for public school, however there are exemptions. Legally, they cannot force you to be vaccinated or to vaccinate your child.

I don't think there is any country in the wold that has a vaccine law. Most mandate them for school but they each have to have an exemption.

We used the exemption and it has not been any problem and no one knows except the school nurse. My grandson is 10 and goes to public school.

As a matter of fact, when we decided not to have him vaccinated any longer (at age 15 mo.) we also stopped going to wbv. He has not seen a ped since then. All they want to do is scare you into vaccinating. Well, it's their main business and they make a lot of money from it.

Another non-vaxing Texan; read my siggy:.

"It should be a rule in all prophylactic work that no harm should ever be unnecessarily inflicted on a healthy person (Sir Graham Wilson, The Hazards of Immunization, 1967)."
