Sometimes I look at my DS and think how "reactive" he is...at 5 months now, he still has cradle cap, has eczema that is "worse" when I eat dairy, soy...I think other foods too...<br><br>
So I'm REALLY glad I don't vax...due to his reactive nature and that he's a boy!<br><br>
I don't vax my DD either...and she's 2.8 years old....<br><br>
I think...boy...the babies who get vaxes and are like my son...are they more prone to getting autism? It's sad actually. I wouldn't touch them esp with boys....<br><br>
any thoughts?

I have had exactly the same thoughts lately. My second grandson had some food allergies to dairy and peanuts. I wonder what would have happened if he were vaccinated? Gosh I am so glad dd didn't do it.<br><br>
He responded beautifully to eliminating all dairy, peanuts and even things that were manufactured in the same plants as those things. DD reads all labels very carefully and he is totally eczema free now.

I know exactly what you mean! My DS is the same way. But I expect it because DH and I have lots of allergies and some severe. I am so relieved that I researched vaccines and will not do them.

I am so glad you listened to your instincts. Who knows what could have happened. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
I know exactly what you mean too. DS has always had an involuntary foot twitch almost like a thumping or rapid tapping. Hard to explain. Anyway, his doctor said it was due to an underdeveloped neurological system and it should get better naturally by 3 months. At his appointment last week, I mentioned it again and the doc said it’s still not really a concern yet and just let it be. It is much less frequent now then when he was a newborn and does not worry me at all, but I do think a lot about what would happen if we had vaxed. He would have got 25 doses of vaccine already!!! That is 25 chances for something to go wrong with him. Add on that he is a boy like you said who knows if my happy, bubbly baby would be so happy and bubbly had I not done my research.<br><br>
It sure does make me glad I didn’t vax <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

My son dosn't seem to be very reactive, from what I can tell. I had a nagging gut feeling all while I had him vaxed....made me uncomfortable that i was injecting his baby body with stuff. Then I read the autism happening more in boys and it made me so greatful I stopped. And to reiterate.....autism is only a tiny tip of possibilities, and there's no indication that autism would have developed had we continued to vax. That little tidbit though is what sealed it for me though....I needed to listen to my gut, as I hadn't been before.

I think that's what it's all about...listening to your gut. I know LOTS of kids have vaxes and are fine...but I couldn't take this chance....<br><br>
