DS will be getting the HIB vax today (after much soul searching, seeing my brother suffer w/meningitis 18 years ago is still very fresh in my mind). Is there anything I can do to help his little body recover? FYI, ds is 4 months old and exclusively breastfed.<br><br>
TIA!

Well, it's good you are bf. My only suggestion is for you to generally check out some of the suggestions in the nutrition thread in the "resources" section of the archives.<br><br>
And be aware of the fact that altering our microbial ecosystems eliminates one problem but leaves more room for others. So good probiotics & breastfeeding should be on the list.

Hmmmmm, no they didn't say what kind, and I was told by ped that this would "cover him for all" of the types. [email protected]#$ it! Ok, definetly switching peds now, this is the last straw. WTH?!? Why can't docs just tell us the truth w/stats and let us make up our minds, fully informed? I was feeling good about yesterday's desicion/visit and then I come back to here and hear a truth that I trust more. [email protected]#$ it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry">
