    I think it should be considered reckless ...

    sorry op for going off topic
    I wouldnt panic we live a much cleaner more civilized life now. Would some kids get sick and die? yes but they do now even vaccinated. All I know is that my unvaxxed kids are sick a lot less than my fully vaccinated kids. Its each persons choice but just wanted to answer your question

    It's funny that you say that, I see the complete opposite in my circle. The unvaxxed children that I know (my friend's children included) are sick more often than my dd (has only had two really basic colds at 20 months). Most have had croup (a few more than once), one has had wc and some other things and we all live in similar environments. I also don't pump daily vitamins into my child everyday, which all of the non vax families that I know do.

    That is interesting, my 6 year old who had 1 rotovirus vaccine is never sick. My other children seem to get sick often yet my 6 and 1 year old dont ever catch it off them. We dont do vitamins in this house because I dont believe in them. My 1 year old also unvaxxed doesnt get sick really ever either strange

    Just a reminder - this is the Pro-Vax section, and we are giving advice and assistance to a mother who is choosing to vaccinate her child ... its not a debate about whether or not others should vaccinate theirs.

    To the OP - I do hope your friend understands your position. I do see a newborn as being much more vulnerable than a say 6month old or 18 month old, and yeah, I would go the extra distance to protect them from anything going around.

    Sorry I was just answering a question, not advising her not to vaccinate and I did offer advice from a non vaxers point of view

    Another possibility that could work is meeting your friend and her kids for outdoors time - picnics, coffee in the park etc, and of course asking that she keep her kids at a distance ie not touching the baby or putting their faces close as kids like to do. Much less likelihood of catching germs in the open air and indeed no more risk really than being in public with people who could be vaxed or unvaxed.

    I'm sorry you took my comment to heart - perhaps I shouldn't have used the word "extreme".

    I do understand your fear - when my daughter was born, my 4 year old and dh had whooping cough, and I brought her home to a house unknowingly because they weren't yet diagnosed.

    Oww, this probably won't end well regardless of what I say But at the end of the day, a healthy baby is more important.
    I have to agree with a pp, your friend is a num num. if people are going to choose not to vac, that is fine, but to do no research and then say "unvaxxed people play no role in people getting sick". What a stupid thing to say.

    I agree! It's okay, I won't have to address this issue as we're no longer friends... As it turns out, that's not the only silly thing she thought haha

    What? It never ceases to amaze me just how passionate anti vaxxers are and yet they continually spout wrong information. it is an inactivated vaccine, ie not live, so you can't catch it from the shot.
