Tales from a Mom-to-be
As my due date nears, I am trying to shove every bit of newborn knowledge into my already full brain. One thing that’s been brought up in the news and through friends is vaccinations. It’s made me wonder: How many are there? What do they protect against? Are they really necessary?
I know when I worked in daycare, the children were required to have been vaccinated to attend unless there was some type of written note explaining religious beliefs or something similar.
But do we really know and understand what vaccinations are for?
How many of you parents did your homework on this subject? Or did you just trust that what the doctor was telling you was what needed to be done?
I have heard of a mother who won’t let anyone around her newborn/child unless THEY have been vaccinated. This is ludicrous to me! Seriously, you can only protect your child so much, and what about OVER protecting.
I’m interested in hearing your thoughts about the choices you made on vaccinating your child.
Why did you choose to vaccinate or why have you chosen a more holistic approach?
Seriously, this stuff is enough to make my head spin! Thanks in advance for your help!
