this is a VERY touchy subject on here. My advice is do your research and make the decisions based on what you, SO and ur ped thinks. I spoke with ours on it.. the baby will not be getting the hep b vaccine ( there is just no need for this) or the chicken pox vaccine unless they dont get the chicken pox by age 11.. then we'll give it then. Read up on side effects.. and effects of not getting them.
I would discuss with any potential peds you are meeting with.
I am provaccine but am one that believes to much is given at once. Here is a book that gives you an alternate schedule and (which is what I loved most about the book) it gives you perspective but does not force any kind of agenda. It is the only book I ever picked up that didn't try to use scare tactics and let you form your own opinion.

I really thought the Dr. Sears vaccine book was well written and unbiased. Just the information on the vaccines and on the diseases they are supposed to help prevent. The book really puts the decisions on the reader but does provide several alternative schedules. I didn't feel as though the book made a person feel bad for fully vaxing "on schedule", for selective vaxing, for delayed vaxing or for non-vaxing. I really felt like it was just a lot of information I was then free to make my own decisions about.
I am a selective/delayed vaxer, just FYI.
