So Sadie has her 2 month old check up tomorrow and im sooo nervous about her having to get shots.. I hate seeing my babies in pain, and injecting stuff that may or may not be needed in her life. Plus my youngest son had a really bad reaction to his last vaccines he got so im afraid of the same thing happening to her. Anyone know how many they get at there 2 month physical? I know i have to do hepb because she got that at birth and its a series thing I think i may just tell them ill agree to 2 , the hep b and something else and then whatever she is missing she can catch up on in a month or something. I think too many things going into a little baby at one time could be dangerous ya know.
So my dr wasn't concerned about us wanting to split some of the vaccines up and sort of do a delay shot schedule for lil miss Sadie, i explained why and she agreed thats what we will do for little miss. So she got her dtap and her 2nd hep b shot today, in 4 weeks she will get what she didn't at this appointment, heres to hoping shes not tooo fussy today, oh and she is 11 lbs 2 oz and 22 1/2 in long now
I hear ya. I have no idea what shots they get at 2 months, but I have been meaning to research it. I may do an alternative schedule for vaccines because I hear at that 2 month appt they do 4-5 shots at once. Seems like so many live vaccines for such a tiny baby. I personally think that the benefits of vaccines outweigh the negatives, but I am interested in an alternative schedule. Where can I research this? Do I just buy Dr. Sears book or is there a better resource?
I will keep Sadie in my thoughts, poor girl. Hope she doesn't have any bad reactions.
Poor little girl, I hope she does alright. Shots are the worst for baby and momma!
Kylie ended up with the DTAP, Hep B, Hib, Pneumococcal, Polio, and Rotavirus. So 6 in total. The Rotavirus was oral and all the others were combined down into 3 shots. She did very well with them and never ran a fever.
Read The Vaccine Book by Dr Sears!!! Highly recommend it. He outlines the risks and benefits of each shot and even has suggestions for delayed schedules. We only do DTaP, Rotavirus, Pc, and Hib shots. We don't do chicken pox, polio, hep a and b or mmr.
