    Default Terrified of non-vaccinated children!

    I wasn't having a go (you sound defensive) but you said earlier that "once my baby is vaccinated they'll be protected" and I was just checking you knew this wasn't 100%.

    I am pro-vax btw I have just done some a bit later than others and skipped rotavirus due to some tummy issues.

    I'm sure I'm pointing out the obvious but for those who have pointed out the high levels of wc going around, don't make the assumption that those adults or children haven't had their vaccinations. I had mine done and still had whooping cough as a child and also when I was 19.

Now that I've been reading just how many people don't vaccinate and the massive risk this presents to the most vulnerable people in society (elderly, very young, and sick people), I'm absolutely terrified to allow my baby to socialize with non-vaccinated children when she's born. Or even to let her play with her vaccinated cousins, because what if they've been around an unvaccinated child who has whopping cough or measles and pass the germs on? It just really worries me that these diseases which were not a concern at all when I was growing up are now being given the opportunity to reemerge into society all because of a growing number of parents who think decades of scientific research is less accurate and has less importance than one fraudulent study that showed a link to autism...
    No questions or anything here, just had to have a bit of a vent!
    Umm, you should be more worried about unvaccinated adults! Make sure you, your partner, family members are all up to date!

    When DS was born there was an outbreak of a particularly nasty flu that took the lives of a couple of toddlers. I was so paranoid that I didn't really leave the house much for the first couple of months!

    Another great way to protect your baby is to breastfeed (which can be extraordinarily challenging but gives bubs lots of protection from germies).

    For me the answer was no.
