Baby stuff

Poor little E. I got her her 2 month DPT shot at her 3 month appointment today. She was so happy and in such a good mood til she got poked then she screamed. Luckily she recuperated very quickly, then nursed and fell asleep. I felt so bad for her. Being a parent is the hardest job I could ever again. I was so back and forth on the imminization thing, I still am. Afraid of making the wrong choice either way . So torn. I decided the best halfway was slight delay and selective vaccination.

Anyhow we now weigh 10.01 maintaining the 11th percentile for weight, 22.8 inches long which puts her at the 37th percentile for length so growing nicely just petite.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  3. Aww! I know how you feel. Miss Lily had her shots yesterday, and it broke my heart.

    I was considering delayed vaccinations, but because of the potential of me being able to take her to work full time (I already go to work once a week for a few hours with her) – and the executive staff traveling all around the world and bring all sorts of bugs back to the office making everyone sick made me choose otherwise. Granted, work is probably safer than daycare….but still far more exposure to things than if we were strictly at home.

  5. Aww, poor E! Sofia hates shots, too!

    Have you read Dr. Sears’ vaccine book? After reading it, we decided to delay Sofia’s vaccinations until a year (or as school/daycare needed) because she was exclusively breastfed and not in daycare.

    We did begin the DTAP series, and gave it at 4 and 6 months (I think?) because there was a thought we’d be travelling overseas, but as soon as we knew we weren’t, we resumed the delay.

    Mama’s immune system protects bebe pretty much completely until about 6 months, btw, if exclusively breastfed.

    We are beginning to get her caught up now (at almost 14 months) because she’ll be at childcare 20 hours a week when I start school in May.

    Just thought I’d share since you inquired on Facebook πŸ™‚

    Yay for growing babies!!! Great job, mama!

    • haven’t read it actually but I should. I love his take on everything. I did some research but just man, I never can decide what is the best thing to do, that is why I waited til she would be past 2 months from full term, but I truly truly wanted to wait til 6 months but was fearful of the alternative as well. Cause she is around lots of people and children in the two playgroups we are part of. Oy.
      So afraid of everything cause I just want what is best for her.
      I am currently reading Parenting the Fussy Baby by Dr. Sears and it’s brilliant and perfect for me to be reading cause it reinforces what my instincts tell me about E. And helps
      me tune out the critical grandparents who think if I never put her down or seperate myself from her that she will be spoiled. I so hate that stupid idea.!

      • I recommend reading it, I love it because he really is not against vaccines. He just gives you information about each disease/vaccines, tells you who is most at risk, what the biggest risks are with the vaccines, etc. so you can make an educated decision. It’s a great read πŸ™‚
        It’s all so daunting, I can totally sympathize with you there. I did a shit-tonne of research, too, and plus I have my father, the biomedical engineer that has been working in pharmacology for the past 15 years… lol, it was overwhelming.
        Keep up the stellar work, Jaime. You are a good mama to Evangeline, she is lucky to have you πŸ™‚ Annoying grandparents are a pain in the ass, but you gotta stay strong and true to your instincts! I’m here for you ❀

      • Thank you. It really means alot to me. This job is way way more difficult then I could have ever possibly wraped my mind around, you just have no idea how hard you will love them, I mean you do, but you don’t….I am so madly deeply attached to her her pain causes me pain which is hard to wrap my mind around sometimes.

      • If you don’t mind me asking, what shot schedule will u be using for her? I think Dtap is one of the most important. Lucas will be 6 months on the 24th and we will be starting with Dtap. Pertussis scares the crap outta me!

      • Well the Canadian shot schedule is a bit differant then the US one. For instance we don’t do the Hep vaccine. So we are supposed to do DTaP + Hib at 2,4 and 6..I wasen’t sure but then decided it’s important so we did it at 3, and will likely do the boosters at 5 and 7 months. They also do Pneumococcal Conjugate at 2,4 and 6…we are still debating this shot’s necessity.
        I haven’t decided on the MMR shot yet, but since we don’t do them til a year I have lots more time to think about it.

      • that sounds like a great vaccine schedule! AAP has a TON more. Lucas will be getting dtap, hib and the pneumococcal one. We will try to get the MMR separated for him sometime before he enters school but not before the age of three. Shots are scary!

      • Ya here is the schedule http://www.cehha.nshealth.ca/downloads/a58b793d-dd7b-49c1-b4e3-077e4ae08c12.pdf vaccines scare me too, I know we won’t do chickenpox for sure. MMR scares me as it is known to be the worst.

      • WOw thats like NOTHING compared to what the aap recommends. We wont be getting chicken pox either. We also wont get hep b, polio and all those til he needs them to get into school. Seriously, why does a newborn need a hep b shot if the mom doesn’t have hep b?
        I wanted to wait to get lucas shots til he was 1 since hes not in day care of anything but since hes not breastfed much anymore, we’re gonna start at his next well baby visit…which wont be for a while because I think he got RSV again! Ughhhh

      • Ya I don’t get the Hep B either to be honest. We also dose her with Crabapple Bach’s flower remedies http://www.bachcentre.com/centre/38/crabappl.htm after the vaccine cause it’s a great detox formula safe for everyone.
