I'd trust a doctor over strangers online about vaccine combinations! I've never heard of any problems combining, and it can be a lot less stressful for the child....

Co-sleeping, extended BF, cloth nappy (diaper) using Mum here. Got a few odd looks (and a few people assuming all of that meant I wouldn't vaccinate) but nothing more.

I think this is a really important point - the point (as I see it) to ask questions it to determine conclusions, not to prove something that has already been decided to be true.
