This is what we do as the risk of Leukemia and other stuff is greatly diminished.

Fantasy Fox, I understand your point though and if we were in your situation we would probably have to do some research and re-evaluate. But so far we have waited until the cord stop pulsing with each of them so we will stick with that if the figures I've seen are correct we have a much better chance of avoiding it all together which I think would be all us mamas first choice!
