    Sorry OP but cut her loose. Her complete and utter disregard for your child's life means that she is not your friend. Do you want to keep a friendship only to potentially lose a child?


    I completely agree with you, but majority of anti vax people believe that vaccinations have minimal impact on controlling diseases.

    If she is a good friend she will understand. Full WC is only given after the six month dose though...

    Are you going to ask everyone who visits if they are vaccinated though? I only ask as it wouldn't make sense to not see this good friend for months because of this, but to see other people iykwim?

    i know about 3 or 4 families who don't vax, and they are exactly the same.. they can get very nasty. One tried to preach to me the other day about why i need to be educated on why i don't need to vax my kids. Your friend can do what she likes with her kids, and you can do what you like with your baby. Which includes staying away from non vaxed adults and kids if you choose.

    I guess since you have a close friendship already you both respect each others choices just respect hers when you tell her that's all. I would probably be a little sad if a close friend told me this but only because i would be missing out on the newborn snuggles and depending on the friendship lending a helping hand if needed. I would respect their choice because they respected mine (or we wouldn't be friends to start with). IMO there is no point getting into a debate over it you'll only hurt each other and I don't think a close friendship is with loosing if its only for such a short time.

    I do know that about wc vax. That's mainly my reason for asking, it would be hard to avoid a good friend for 6 months when we see eachother often.
    Yes. In my op, I said that I asked family and close friends to make sure they were up to date when I had dd. This was no issue though, as they are all pro vax.

    That's great that most people are happy to be vaxxed but what about people that just pop round or aren't a particularly close friend?

    I'm not trying to change your mind or anything - you need to do why you feel is right. But in reality I think it is extremely hard to make sure no un-vaxxed people touch or come near your baby.

    Having said that, I do understand that a close friend is going to have more contact with you than a less close friend or a random at the supermarket (for example).

    I guess for me it would be a shame to not see a friend for months, but still potentially expose my baby to various illnesses through other people (family, friends, neighbours, etc).

    I'm not the kind of parent to let Jo Bloggs down the street have a cuddle of my baby and we really only have family/close friends visit. I am aware that a baby can catch wc or other diseases just from being around people, but this is specifically about a close friend and her children that I do have a lot to do with.

    Eta- I did and will next time take measures to try and lessen bub's exposure to the general public, but it will be hard to say to a really good friend 'we can hang out, but i'm keeping bub in the pram and out of your view' or 'sorry, but I can't see you for six months'.

    If she honestly cared about the health and safety of your newborn, she wouldn't take offence. Tell her how strongly you feel about vaccinations and hopefully is she is as good of a friend as you say, she will respect your wishes.
