I have a friend who has a daughter my daughter's age. We met at our birthing class 2 years ago and have been friends ever since. She is not a close friend, but someone we hang out with maybe once every two or three months. We got together a few days ago and she mentioned to me that she has chosen not to vaccinate her daughter, she was never vaccinated as a child/adult and believes strongly that this is what is best for their family.
This is troubling for me since we have a new baby on the way. I don't worry about me or DD so much because we are fully vaccinated and thus protected. But a newborn baby certainly would be at risk. DH and I have decided that we do not want her or her daughter to be around our baby until he/she is older (not sure how old at this point).
I guess I'm just wondering if anyone has been in this situation, what did you say, how did they react, are you still friends, etc? Please understand I'm not trying to turn this into a vaccine debate and whether we are being over protective or not our minds are made up. We have to do what we think is best for our family same as my friend does.
