We decided to hold off on certain vaccines until our son was a bit older, until the risk age was past. On recommendation of our paed at the time as well, he said there was no definitive proof but if we felt more comfortable we could wait. Which we did and if this one is a boy we will wait as well.

I wouldn't say don't get the vaccine, there is a reason for them after all. But a bit later is ok than not at all.

We delayed the MMR but that was because some research says it is more effective after 15 months. Plus I thought he could do without getting jabbed all the time

I'm more concerened about all the plastic laboratory crap they put in food and drink these days. Not to mention all the damn phone masts around sending waves through my body

If you see me I am the one sitting at my desk with tin foil on my head

I heard something about autism being linked to too much tv at a young age. Probably not true but it still makes me think twice about sitting my baby in front on the tv. Ill probably think twice about the timing of my vaccines too.

I have aspergers syndrome and AD/HD and did have my vaccines but my mum said I was different from birth and that the vaccines did nothing to change me. I lead a relatively normal life and am married, hold down a job, am studying part time to get my degree and am now having a family. Yes I did have problems in the past and a lot of my normality comes from getting help when I was younger but having a disorder from the autisitic spectrum is by no means an indication of a lesser quality of life.

I'm more concerned about my child dying or being severely disabled from one of the devistating diseases that we are protected against by vaccine. My mother said if I was worried I can opt to have the MMR as seperate vaccines for my child but I will cross that bridge when I get there.

My second son had a bad reaction to the mmr and went deaf and developed aspergers and adhd, I dont think there is a risk as such after reading all the relevent info, however he is now 16 and we have found out he is missing an enzyme wich helps metabolise drugs so I wonder if that was the issue but may never know.

Generally I think vaccinations are good however because of my son and other members of close family having reactions ( I myself had a bad reaction to the whooping cough vaccine) We decided not to vaccinate our other children.

Whatever you decide to do delay vaccinations or not have them is YOUR choice. I am very aware of what would happen if our children contracted these awful diseases and it took a lot of soul searching to make the decision we have and live with the consequences.

Good Luck to you all xx

This is the same for my son. There was something about my son at birth so I don't link his Aspergers to the vaccinations which he has had. My 2 girls have also had these vaccinations and do not have Aspergers. I think that there are so many things that could be linked to Autism but considering my husbands family has a strong family history of Autism I am pretty sure it is more of a hereditary thing.

Also as for the numbers of children with Autism rising - this is a condition that is so well recognised now and so much support is out there. It is becoming more widely diagnosed due to this where as in the past these children were seen as 'naughty' children.

I am not an expert on the subject and I have not done extensive research. I will vaccinate my son though. He will be in daycare from 12 weeks on and will attend public school. I am a nurse and work in an ICU where I am in contact with many communicable diseases everyday. He needs protection. I would always feel guilty if he developed a communicable disease that is now preventable with vaccination. If he is autistic I don’t think we would ever know if it was related.

I think the rise in autism is directly linked to the increase in reporting and identification of autism.

So many things can go wrong with your child. I will feel so blessed, thankful, and lucky if my child is healthy!

The numbers of vaccincines given to children has increased from 10 given to us in 1983 up to 38 given in 2010!!! Look into who does the research on the vaccines and deems them as safe. The drug companies that make the vaccines are the ones giving the data. If you think you are giving the same vaccines to your child that you were given check out this link first. http://www.naturalfamilyawareness.co...-1983-vs-2010/

Vaccines have changed a lot since my generation had them as babies and the rise in autism is quite recent. What are your thoughts on this? How do you plan to handle vaccines?
Rebekah, the rise in autism isn't recent, it's the diagnosing that has risen. I for one do not believe that vaccines cause autism. Autism affects more boys than girls and genetics seems to play the biggest role. If vaccines were the cause then there would be an equal amount of boys and girls who develop the handicap. There are so many worse results from not getting your children vaccinated...

Slightly off-topic, my friend won't get them because of religious reasons; she says the vaccs are made of aborted babies???
Either way, she says her doctor was the nicest guy in the world until she refused vaccinations, and he hassels her every visit about them.
That's ridiculous imo. Some vaccines contain chicken egg components so if your friend is against using chicken babies then I guess this comment would make sense.
