Re: I need some advice please....

I forgot- on family:

my mom freaked a bit too.
I told her that my childs life MATTERS to me, more than it could possibly matter to her, That I have done careful research and am doing what I believe to be best for my child.
I told her that the risk of the vax is greater than the risk of the disease especially in the first 2 years of life. That the vax risks decrease further at age 5. That I would vax as soon as I felt that the benefits outweighed the risks. That health is VERY important to me.
This calmed her immensely.
My oldest is 8 now and hasn't had a shot in 7 years and isn't likely to get any until he's grown and makes his own choices. But my mom hasn't asked in years.
Kim, mom of 5
