Hello, this is the first time I'm using this sort of forum with other mothers so it is a bit strange.... but really appreciate the opportunity to share my thoughts and seek for yours.
The past five days I have been struggling with my decision of giving my 1 year old his 12 months immunisation shots as he have had major reactions since receiving his shots. His reactions included vomiting, fever, screaming (he is normally placid and easy going), restlessness, extra clinging, not eating, not be able to sleep through the night (lying down seemed to be causing more pain), spasm (the doctors believed it was convulsion), and red spots have broken out all over his body.
I am concern that all the shots he have been receiving (we deferred his shots till he was six months) may bring on autism,epileptic or seizure. Should i be concern and is anyone else having similar problems?
The Australian medical doctors are ALL pro immunisation and there is little discussion if any regarding the side effects of these shots and alternative preventions. My partner and i are frustrated and angry that we are putting our child through unnecessary pain and possibly serious side effects as the result of caving into this 'bullied' medical system.
Would love to hear your thoughts and advice on how i can help my little boy through this tough stage.
