Well, it just ticks me off more than anything that policy is supposedly determined by the science. The science supplied by the manufacturers based on their trials, right? So, if the manufacturers do...

Forgot to mention that DD got b/w for a measles, mumps, and rubella titre. If it comes back good, then we're skipping the second dose. DS is having his b/w done at that point as well.

Usual aggravation

So, as many of you might recall, we started selectively vaccinating the kids. They had the MMR in 2013. Then we moved. I miss our old GP. His kids had had mumps and chickenpox as kids and he didn't...

About two hours. They'd budgeted 90 minutes but found two more cavities to fill after they did X-rays.

I guess just talk to the anaesthesiologist and see what he says. Ours called us two days...

My DS (just turned 7 at the time of procedure) just had a lot of work done under GA. He'd had an abscess (antibiotics cleared up the initial infection) but then he needed two molars extracted (baby...

You might get different responses but my take on it is that my kids have to be in good health at the time…so no infections, no colds/URIs, and no antibiotics. Gut bacteria plays a huge role in...

Yeah, I don't think arguing with the teacher will accomplish a lot. Go for the source of whatever organisation created the info package and let them know how ridiculous it sounds. In my DD's school,...

We have to do this here with the CO. Otherwise, the kids would be back on the registry and expected to be fully UTD. It gets expensive too. We have to purchase everything privately through...

Turquesa gave you some great advice about owning whatever decision you make, and not vaccinating based on fear. I guess I'd also add don't let arguments to "do it for the community" play too much of...

We're in Australia. We were given Movicol, which is probably along the same lines as the Miralax. He did not stay on it and in our case, it wasn't really necessary after the initial clean out....

We've BTDT and could buy a whole rack of T-shirts. DS PTed late, had issues learning to poop on the potty, then all was fine (we thought) until we started with these soiling episodes when he was five...

You're welcome. I think you have a very sensible approach and nothing is written in stone, right? I think a healthy dose of pragmatism is good, especially as our kids get older…they outgrow the need...

I'd check into it too. I'm in Australia, and so perhaps the exact constituents might be slightly different, but here the IPV on its own contains 2–3 µL phenoxyethanol; 2–20 µg formaldehyde;...

Hep A is not on the schedule here and I don't think we're doing hep B, but in my former province, they didn't offer it until Grade 5.

Probably DTaP and Polio first. Then Hep B. Then MMR. My logic is based on what I read of hep B reactivity (so keep it separate) and what the nurse told us re: MMR…that it can often cause a fever...

What kind of father willingly and knowingly hurts his child out of spite? That's what it is. I'm sure if you asked the boy, "Would you like part of your penis cut off?" he'd say no. But that a father...

It gets even better when different countries endorse different catch up schedules. For example, in my state here in Australia, they recommend that all children over age 8 not previously vaccinated...

I just wanted to add as well that some of the infant combo vaccines are not recommended for use in kids in over age 7, so if you delay past that point, that is also something to consider.

At least one "positive" to come out of the discussion re: vaccine efficacy is that there is an acknowledgment now that the vaccine has limitations.

My last suspected bout with pertussis was in...

It's not the case. It's just that the Watanabe et al article was from 2005 and everything was all rosy then. This is from 2012:
