I say congrats because I know how hard it is to tell ped "I'm delaying' or similiar. But my feeling is...I'm doing my research, I'm doing my reading, I'm asking my friends, I'm learning.. I'm doing my part... I'm not coming in here just to be 'contrary'. Good for you.
by the way, my own understanding is that august is the highest month for pertussis in most of the US. So, maybe there are 40 cases or similiar every summer in the nearby county. So much to weigh, I know, but good for you for stating your position. My heart breaks for the moms who post here saying, "I didn't want to do it but I didn't feel strong enough to say anything."
we only have our guts and sometimes we have to stand up for them..
