Parenting is tough enough but then you add vaccinations to the mix. It doesn’t seem like people can have a civil conversation about them without a lot of hair pulling, name calling and just down right ugliness and that’s just between Mr. Bejelly and I so you imagine the fervor of passion about this seemingly simple medical routine.
Before the Little was born, we knew that we would be going with an altered vaccination schedule. We both felt that it was necessary for his immune system to develop and acclimate to life outside of the womb before we would start injecting him with foreign materials. We wanted to make an informed decision about what path to take and coming across articles about vaccines being contaminated by animal dna and the horrifying cases of vaccine injury only made it harder to choose .
I am of the camp that vaccinations are not necessary while Mr. Bejelly believes that several are. We met in the middle and the Little will be getting the DTAP right after his first birthday. I had hoped to wait until he was two.
His Doctor recommended the The Infanrix by GSK since it has no preservatives. I also asked for recommendations on how to help prepare his immune system.
Child for vaccinations: 3 Ways to help prepare for them
- Breastfeed. If you’re still breastfeeding this is the best immune booster.
- Infant Mulit Vitamin - a few weeks before and after the shot.
- Infant Probiotic – again a few weeks before and after the shot.
