I wasn't vaccinated as a baby/child because my mother thought they were unsafe. The thing is I would like to be vaccinated against rubella. I live in the city now and I hear the horror stories of the effect it has on babies in the womb. Also my cousins baby just got rubella at 12 months ( a month before he was due the vaccine), So it worries me that the disease is still out there, and in the next town!
I have been told that I have to get the MMR and I cant get Rubella on its own. I am breastfeeding my 6 month old and we have decided that we want to start trying for baby number two as soon as possible.
I want to know if anybody knows if this vaccine is safe/unsafe while breastfeeding?
Also, is there any waiting period before you can start to try?
Please help... not looking to be scared loads, just some good advice from people who know a bit about this! Thanx in advance! x
