So my dh and I have been doing lots and lots of research and we are pretty sure we are NOT vax'ing anymore. Now that we are on baby #4 and our oldest two children are fully vaxed! Anyway, my question is that there are some live vax's still out there like MMR and chicken pox.... can my baby get sick from other children if they've just had these vax's?? Just wondering..... Thanks!!

Yes, but, all babies are at equally "unprotected" (ok, bf babies have an advantage ) because those vaxes are not given until 12mo.
