    Default New baby. In vaccinated visitors

    Ok so I know it's a touchy subjected everyone has their personal choices and that's fine my problem is.. .

    We are due with bub no#2 soon and we are strong believers in vaccinations all our family had them when our son was born and all our friends had them with their children etc, my predicament is our children's godfathers new partner is not vaccinated and doesn't think it is necessary, would it be rude for me to not want her to be around bub till it's had it's first round of needles?


    I know she has contracted a few of the things so it really concerns me particularly whooping cough??

    :/ I don't want to offend anyone but my kids health comes first to me is all

    Its your personal decision hun. If you dont feel comfortable then its ok to ask her to stay away. I personally avoided many people until DD 6 week needles.

    She clearly doesn't feel rude declining vaccinations so I wouldn't feel rude asking her to stay away.

    So the hard part is how to I say to them that I don't want in vaccinated people around bub till the first jabs are done.. I know they want to see baby when it's born particularly the godfather?.. I am fine with her choice not to be but don't want her to be offended as it's not a personal attack :/

    Say it casually in conversation, exactly like what you've done here. That you don't feel comfortable having visitors who are unvaxxed. She should't be offended, your baby comes first.

    I think that it's absolutely fine to request that she doesn't visit. We asked our families to have the whopping cough vax, my sister declined as she doesn't like needles. My response was 'that's ok, we are not forcing you but understand that I won't let you hold the baby until it is vaccinated". She did end up getting vax.
    The ABC (I think) did a great doco recently on whopping cough and families getting vax, if you can find it on the net it might help you make your point.
    Also if preg women get vax in the 3rd trimester it does help to give bub some immunity (in my understanding).

    When was your last whooping cough vaccine OP?
    If you have it in the last week at least two weeks b4 bub is born, bub will have the the protective antibody level equivalent to a fully vaccinate 12 month old.
    That way it won't matter if she wants to vaccinate or not.

    Her decision not to vax. Your decision to only have vaxxed people around to visit bub.

    Just say you would love her to visit after first/second vax needles.

    I had my last shot after DS was born 2 years ago, midwife said when I asked her last that none of us needed another one yet?
