Why are you choosing not to vaccinate at this point? All the shots they get at 4 and 6 months (pretty sure at least) are repeats of the ones he got at 2 months anyway and he got those....

This should be a decision that you and the father make together since you are both the parents. If you have valid reasons for not wanting to vaccinate... present them when the two of you go to meet with the doctor.

I think you need to be able to explain your reasons on why you are refusing. After all, daddy should have a say in this too. Why are you even refusing to talk to the doctor about this to see what he says? To me, if you are deciding not to vaccinate and are refusing to listen to what the doctor has to say, you aren't exactly making your decision on all the information you can.

Yeah I am also interested to know why he's had up to 4 months but now you've changed your mind?

Well honestly I feel that the father has just as much of a say as the mother does. Why have you changed your mind? Maybe you could look at compromising and look at different vaccination schedules, like Dr Sears?
