I talked to dh last night about delaying Brenden's shots and he was all for it!!! I thought he would give me crap but he also feels bad that Bren has been sick so much!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I'm am soo glad that a friend let me know about this site, It is so great to have other women to talk to about this, it is such a hard decision to make and I am glad that there is a ton of info on this board!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I'll let you know how his 9 month check up goes when I tell the ped. we are delaying the rest of his vax's!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Good for you and for your son. After you research it more I bet those delays will be permanent. Whatever information you research, share it with DH. He needs to hear it all the time. It takes a while to get the confidence to go against the grain.<br><br>
Boy do I wish we would have delayed my grandsons' vaxex and kept researching instead of jumping on the individual-no-mercury-vax-bandwagon.<br><br>
Well, after one more vax we did delay - and it was permanently.<br><br>
Hope to see you around a lot.<br><br>
And don't forget you don't have to take your son to a 9 months visit. If he is not sick, you can skip it. There is no need to take a child to a doctor if he is well. What is the purpose? Just to tell him that you don't need his services. He will not be happy. He will try to convince you of just 'one more' vax, the 'one' he considers most important. Well, maybe I'm wrong.<br><br>
I raise three children and hardly ever took any to the ped. And they managed to grow up. As a matter of fact, one is a doctor.

Great news. I was nervous myself about what my husband would think. But when I asked him, he shocked me by saying we should wait until their older than 2. Good enough for now.<br>
Fabulous news!!!!

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> great news! I hope the doctor visit goes well. I still see the ped just to cover my butt incase and also I think maybe the more docs see very healthy unvaxed babies they might figure out the connection to overall good health. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

good for you!<br>
my teen dd was fully vaxed (cept for the tetanus booster we declined a month ago)<br>
and my preschooler was fully vaxed (cept for prevnar that i declined)<br><br>
with our son i was more informed and talked to dh, read him some things out of books and he was all for delaying. Even stepmom jumped on board after reading a book or two i sent her way - so we even have family support.<br><br>
Now our son is 11mos and dh and I both agree he'll never have a vaccination.
