I think breast feed kids have more natural immunity. So, since I breast feed, the option I chose was to refuse vaccinations until they entered school.
So, many of the vaccinations are repetitive, "boosters'" for the previous round of shots.
But, that was 30+ years ago. I also, had a child in my 40s and I let her have the shots, my older kids had the chicken pox, mumps etc, and everyone is
fine. My youngest however that had the shots to keep from getting these things, spent 5 days in and out of a cool bath, trying to keep her temp under
103. It kept spiking to 105. Of course I took her to the Dr. I wish I would have let her have the chicken pox. Her best friend who also had the
chicken pox shot as a baby, never had the chicken pox, but he got a horrid case of shingles at 15 years old.
Its a personal choice. I would breast feed, use common sense keep them away from too much exposure to public places, and wait until they go to school.
Let their own natural immunity develop for the first few years.
Most of all, listen to your own intuition, no one is going to love your children like you do. So, listen to that love, you will know the best option
for your family.
Just my opinion.
