The person who we thought would be most up in arms over us not vaxing our child is completely on our side.....<br><br>
My Mom who is an IBCLC and RN listened carefully when I brought up the subject to her and said the following in response:<br><br>
"If I knew then what I know now, I would have never vaccinated any of my children."

That's awesome. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br><br><br><br><br>
When I told my mom about the diff vax's and that I wouldn't be vax'ing myself (any longer) or any children that I have, she started arguing with me, while I countered every arguement of hers. Now both my parents think I'm crazy.

That's awesome! My parents the ones who got me thinking about vaccines- even though I was vaxed- their friends told them about them and to warn me about the dangers, so they did and I started researching (but not soon enough to not get dd's 2 month shots<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> ) and I am so grateful to them. It's great to have family on your side!

You know, thats what my midwife told me and DH when we brought it up shortly before DS was born!! And my mom said the same thing (though in truth she didn't want to vax us back then, but was pressured into it by family...)!!

your mom sounds just like mine!! She is now passing out stuff I send her to all her pregnant co workers and telling them not to vax until they do some research.

Mine and Dh's 2 biggest supporters for not vaxing are my mom and step-dad. My SD even went out and bought and anti-vax DVD to learn more himself! <3
