I am a mother of 2 boys age 6 and 3
"I am a mother of 2 boys age 6 and 3. Both boys were born at home, and both were breastfed for 2 years. When our first boy was born I began to read and study all that I could about vaccines. I met with a naturopathic doctor to discuss the issue, and I found a number of books that were very enlightening and over the course of a few months, took many vaccine specific notes. I did have 2 vaccinations for our first child Dtap and Hep B but did not do so until after he was 2 years of age and over a very long period for the series for each because we had planned to live overseas for some time. I now realize that these were even unnecessary.At the age of 2 our first child contracted Rubella. He handled it extremely well, and only had a fever for 1/2 a day and then a rash that didn't bother him in the least. It was this that made me realize that my inclination to believe that the threat that vaccines bring are far worse than the viruses themselves. Our second child is not vaccinated. We all spent the better part of 2 years in India, and though we were sick a number of times I believe due to either food/water borne illness. They bounced back very quickly.
