Smile Our 12 month ped visit

So we went for our 12 month well baby today which I was pretty nervous about. I am a pediatric nurse so I "agree" with vaccines, but also agree with delaying= especially since dd is small for her age and vaccines are one size.
So I had my schedule planned as I would have it when I got there just knowing she would give me crap about it which would be a problem because she's also my OB right now! I really didn't want to find a new OB AND ped! So I said what's due?
They said MMR, Prevnar, and HiB. I said- well, ok, no MMR we can do the rest.
She said- that'll be fine. How would you like to schedule the rest?
She said- she's your child and you have to make those decisions. I don't always have to agree, but I will support you. YAYAYAYAYAYAY!

DD is vaxed fully, but I am nervous about the MMR. she WILL get it, but I'm not sure when. As a nurse, I can't NOT get her vaccinated when I have seen children very sick or die from some diseases that are vaccinated for...but that's another story and also very rare. Not sure how I'll handle DS's vaccines when he comes now that I know my dr will be supportive on delaying. I think I will have to look at it more closely! Feeling good about things today though!

Glad she was supportive.

We don't vaccinate, we kept our sons intact, we use cloth diapers, we co-sleep, we extended RF, we breastfeed, but we watch too much tv and I totally dig plastic! Everyone has their issues, lol.
