A Shot in the Dark Begins at Birth

Here is the 2010 official American schedule for childhood vaccinations: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/cgi/data/125/1/195/DC1/1

How many parents know what is being injected into their babies? Below I have listed the major ingredients in the vaccines your baby will receive if you vaccinate “the right way” according to your government, CDC and doctor.  
Birth. Before leaving the hospital, your newborn will be injected with these ingredients:

Remember to gather and review all the information about your child’s vaccinations before it is time for the shots. You need to know ahead of time which vaccine, which brand and which ingredients your child will be exposed to at the visit.

Wondering where to begin? I list pro-vaccine sources and then anti-vaccine sources in a tidy post right here:

Want to make a customized schedule to fit YOUR child’s needs? This is an awesome tool! This calculator lets you customize a schedule based on your child’s age, height and weight. It will add up toxin exposure and alert you to allergen exposure! http://www.vaccine-tlc.org/

Do you need to know more about the vaccines themselves? You can read all about the ingredients and the manufacturing process by reading the actual package inserts:

Oh yes! And don't forget: you have the right to refuse vaccinations! Vaccines are not required. You can delay, you can choose some but not others, you can stop until you have decided. If people are harassing you, report them, fire them and hire a doctor who respects you and your children.

She hopes to share relevant, up to date information with other parents so that they can take advantage of foresight and not live with hindsight.  You can find more information on her blog at http://guggiedaly.blogspot.com

Thank you, Guggie!  You are an inspiration to so many, I could never thank you enough for the information you have shared with me!  A beautiful and incredibly intelligent woman, mother and friend.
