VACCINATIONS


Vaccines have become subject to debate. I highly recommend doing your own research and finding out about the potential side effects of vaccines, the ingredients, the severity of the disease vaccines are used against and the realistic possibility of your child being exposed to it. For some of the vaccines, it may be possible to wait until the baby is at least a year old, when the child's constitution is much more stable.[1] And you may want to ask your doctor about giving vaccines individually rather than five or so at once, to give your child the time to deal with each one fully. In most places, immunization is your choice. Though some schools require it, it is often possible to be exempt for belief reasons. Get different opinions, do research, and check sources.
