    This is one of the hardest things I have EVER watched. I have never cried from a video that has been linked on BH, but I cried when I watched this one.

    Anti vaxxers always focus on the babies that die, that there aren't many blah blah. What a torturous disease, what an awful thing for this poor little bubba to go through.

    Yes they do, and that is what I meant. It isn't just about the ones who die, it is about the ones who suffered through and survived. I know I had some long term complications from whooping cough and I was an adult, I can only imagine what damage has been caused by WC in this baby.

    People do need to see it, I honestly believe that people who are anti vax should be taken through the paed infectious diseases units to see it for themselves, so easy to brush things off as not that important when you don't see it.

    The saying is true, vaccines are the victims of their own success!

    The fact oxygen isn't reaching the brain when they are gasping for air ..the damage on the brain can be so small ..but may never function to how it was meant to be if they had not got the cough..(hope that made sense ..so tired)

    My mum is a midwife and has always said - people should go and sit with these kids when they choose not to immunise their children.

    Whooping cough is horrible, our Dr put DS1 was on a delayed vax schedule due to being a premmie with respiratory problems and before he had finished his vax schedule he got whooping cough, thankfully he didn't get a bad case in fact he only had a slight tickle cough but it is still troubling and scary.
