my husband wants to immunize our daughter but I'm not so sure...

This is one of the few things my husband and I disagree on. I'm not sure what to do. I hear horror stories about what happens to kids on vaccines and I don't know if it's worth it.

Have you heard the horror stories about kids who don't receive vaccines? Maybe you should research those too.

The other ladies have said it all. Do your own research but be careful of where you get the information from. If you go to anti vaccine sites then you will get a lot of horror stories that aren't true. You need to find scientific sites to be properly informed. It would also be good to research the diseases that the immunizations prevent and see the horrific results of them.

Like Little Miss: I know it's worth it. I couldn't live with myself if my child died of a disease that I could have helped prevent.

Well, 'hearing horror stories' and actually DOING RESEARCH are two different things. Have you spoken with your doctor? Asked questions? Considered both the pro's and cons of each vaccine, individually? Asked if you could possibly space out the vaccinations, so as not to traumatize your child?

This is not something that you decide simply because a celebrity swears that vaccines are horrible, or because your best friend thinks that there's nothing better.

RESEARCH. Both you and your husband research your positions, present valid arguments to each other, and come to a mutual decision.

Why specifically are you hesitant? You can hear horror stories about anything.

Do I think it is worth it??? YES. If you are concerned, you could certainly speak to the doctor about your concerns and spread out the vaccines.

My question would be who do you hear the horror stories from? How valid are they? Often times there are lots of "horror" stories out there on many things but many are not valid and those that are valid tend to be rare. So don't go by what you think or hear go by what is reality. Ask your doc questions.....find out the facts. Also find out the risks for not vaccinating.
