F.T, E.B.F. mom to a nine week old baby girl. Second pregnancy, but first child. Texas!
Again, I'm a F.T.M. and my daughter's only nine weeks so I'm still a newbie, but so far consider my parenting style attachment and just started reading Dr. Sears' vaccine book yesterday. If anyone has any opinions on vaccines, then feel free to comment! Particularly DTaP as pertussis scares the heck out of me, but so do potential side effects of that particular vaccine.
Anyway, I'm glad that I found this group! Even when my daughter was four weeks, people were telling me that I shouldn't be sleeping with her because she'll never sleep in her bed. Four weeks! I loved my Pregnancy After a Loss group, but now that I have a baby I worry that it's insensitive for me to stay so hopefully I've found a new home!

On the side note of vaccines: my LO will be getting any and all vaccines as to me the benefits far outweigh the risks. I know a couple of people who have suffered from completely preventable diseases and I really want to make sure to do my part for herd immunity for those who rely on it ( I.e. Immune deficient). I'm looking into spacing though as I do believe that you can overload a babies system.
I look forward to seeing and participating in more posts with everyone!
