Well I have a 10 week old daughter and my fiancee's friend has a 5 month old that was just immunized with far more shots then any one child of that
age should of ever been treated with...as a result her poor child is experiencing a mountain of side effects and we are researching every other
possible scenario before subjecting our child to the same.
The best scenario is to not vaccinate at all (IMO). I have three kids ages 5yr, 3yr & 11mo. The first child was born in kidney failure and spent the
first 6 months of his life in the NICU. As first time parents with a VERY sick child, we deferred to the wishes of the doctors and our first child was
given all the normal vaccines he would have gotten the first six months. He received a kidney transplant at the age of two so his shots had to be kept
up to date so insurance would pay for the procedure. He has lingering developmental problems and behavior problems that the doctors keep telling us
are just from being developmentally delayed, but the more we research it being delayed does not account for all his issues.
The 3 year old was in the NICU for 10 weeks due to prematurity, and the 11 month old was in the NICU for prematurity and a bowel rupture. He actually
had to go back and have a blockage repaired due to what was basically a poorly done surgery the first time. The younger two kids we did not vaccinate
at all and they have not had any health, developmental or behavioral issues (hard to say that's true of the youngest yet, but he seems to be on
track). The oldest is actually quite healthy physically, especially given the fact that he is tube fed (He does eat hot dogs, fruit loops and drink
iced tea. Nice diet eh?) and immunosuppressed.
It's not easy to say all of the oldest issues are from vaccines, there are other factors at work for him to be sure. All three kids were very
premature but the oldest and youngest had the roughest start (they are both boys, the girl in the middle did the best, which is pretty common for
premature babies). I know this is anecdotal at best, just thought I would share my experience with my kids.
