Accepting, foregoing, delaying or picking and choosing childhood vaccinations is an increasingly hot debate topic for parents and health practitioners.

Breastfeeding is thought to offer protection from many of the diseases for which vaccines are offered. How can or should this figure into your decisions on this complicated and confusing topic?

What are your thoughts on the vaccine debate? Have questions? Want to offer some perspective?

Vaccines and Breastfeeding

NOTE: Keep it friendly folks -- those who delay or forego vaxes are not anarchists endangering humanity. And those who vaccinate are not irresponsibly poisioning their kids. This is a place for discussion, not scare tactics and accusations. Posts not in this spirit will be deleted.
