Before Baby A was born we decided we were going to spread out her shots. Neither Hubby or I were a fan of getting a bunch of vaccines all at once.
We did this in effort to spare Baby A's immune system & keep her healthy.

Today was her last shot until she is 1 year old. She is caught up with the other 9 month old babies.
I have been taking her to the Dr. every 2-3 weeks for her shots since she was born.
I am so happy that we have a 3 month break before she gets another one.
She did great with all of her shots. She is a real trooper!
I am really happy we decided to get her vaccines that way. I personally am not even sure I believe in all vaccines, only a few of them. We covered our bases by getting them, but we spread them out so her body could properly deal with each individual vaccine.
She never spiked a fever or got sick from her vaccines. I believe this is partly due to spacing them out.
While our system isn't for everyone, I am really happy that we made this choice for our child.
I don't believe in the chicken pox or flu vaccines, so those are 2 vaccines Baby A ( and I) won't be getting.
Do you do delayed vaccines?
Do you skip vaccines?
Do you follow the CDC schedule for vaccines?
