Thoughts on Newborn procedures

such as the Heb B shot, Vitamin K shot, eye ointment, etc? Did you do a modified vaccination schedule or traditional? Thanks

Re: Thoughts on Newborn procedures

  • We follow a traditional vax schedule. Our only change was delayed the Hep B at birth. DD had some minor complications and we Dr. recommended waiting until she was a little older.

    I hope to create a real siggy but first I need some sleep!

  • Delayed. Used the vaccine book. My ped says as long as you don't delay too long it's fine. Waited until 3 mo visit to start.

  • We are planning on following the CDC's schedule. IMO, they (and the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of Family Physicians) wouldn't recommend it if it weren't scientifically proven to be safe. I'd rather get as much done early as possible, and not have to take LO to the doc more times than necessary. From what I've heard (from doctors), kids remember the number of doctors visits more than the number of shots per visit.

    This exactly.
