Is anyone else considering delaying or "spacing out" their baby's shots? Since autism runs in our family, I want to take every possible precaution in preventing it in my 10 week old son.
At his 2 month well-baby visit, they wanted to give him SIX vaccines at once! I allowed the DTP shot, because pertussis is a real threat at his age. However, I refused the other combination shot they reccommended, and will return next month to get it (requires an extra visit, but who cares?).
I plan on following Dr. Sears delayed immunization schedule, but I'm still worried about it...so many "unknowns" in the whole process!
Any thoughts? Anyone else concerned about the harmful effects of vaccinations on our babies? Anyone have trouble following an alternative schedule?
Your input is greatly appreciated!
