Father Yearning

father-handA guest blog by my friend, Marcella Piper-Terry, who powerfully conveys the intrinsic desperate need we all have for the love of our father. Our heart’s yearning for love and acceptance from our earthly father, is a mirror of the hunger placed in our heart to know and be accepted by our Father in heaven. Many will never know the love or have a relationship with an earthly father, but a relationship with our heavenly Father is an open invitation to all. If you can relate to father hurt, at any level, I urge you to seek your heavenly Father with all your heart, soul and mind.

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord… Jeremiah 29:12-14

There’s this man…
He was the first man in my life.
He was the first man to break my heart.
When he left, I felt abandoned, unloved, confused, afraid, and very angry. For a very long time.
I couldn’t let him go.
He moved on.
I couldn’t let him go.
He disappeared and in the vapor that was left behind were the ghosts of my needs. Reaching. Clawing at the nothingness.
Until I found a substitute. Who also moved on, and who repeated the abandonment and inflicted the same pain on our son.
But there was still this man.
I loved him.
I couldn’t let him go.
Even though he let me go.
I couldn’t let him go.
Over decades, I called. He hung up.
I tracked him down and rang his doorbell with my baby on my hip.
He didn’t recognize me.
Over decades.
More than 40 years.
I couldn’t let him go.
Then it happened.
My phone rang.
He was back.
And now, only a handful of years later, he is leaving me again.
And I am here. With him. In his world.
Learning who this man is.
Learning about his life, his perceptions of the world and the people he has known and loved. Learning about the parts of me that come from him.
Please pray for God to give me strength and to fill my heart with love, acceptance, and forgiveness as I spend what will most likely be my final visit with my father.
He is so many things.
He is handsome, charismatic, intelligent, artistic, and beautifully… humanly… incredibly flawed.
And I love him.
Desperately.

Delayed Selective Vaccines

colt-barhamMany parents opt to delay vaccines. Many research and still conclude that their child needs certain vaccines. Sometimes they are pressured into giving vaccines against their better judgment. Parents that delay and select specific vaccines and do not follow the CDC recommendations usually give vaccines slowly, or one at a time. Is this a safe way to find a ‘middle of the road’ compromise? For some it may work well, unfortunately it doesn’t keep all children safe. This is a tragic story of suffering of a young boy who had a severe reaction to vaccines despite the delayed/ selective schedule his parents thought would keep him safe.

Please take the time to read the story below, directly from Colt’s mom. As a warning, I would like to point out that any skin reaction to any vaccine is a strong warning signal that your child could be more susceptible to vaccine injury. Historically it was known and taught to doctors that eczema is a contraindication for vaccines because it was a clear sign of an immune dysfunction that the doctors respected. Doctors asked about previous reactions and especially skin sensitivities and would not give vaccines to children who had eczema or a skin reaction to previous vaccines. This wisdom is now ignored. Parents need to know and we need to help warn them. Thank you for sharing.

Many people have followed Colt’s varicella vaccine injury, from April 2016. I recently updated his journey since he’s settling into kindergarten. It’s posted public on my page if you would like to share.

We used to vaccinate on a very delayed schedule, never more than one injection in a visit. The kindergarten (not in CA) instead that Colt have the varicella vaccine prior to entering. My son got his first varicella vaccine at 5 years old.

Within a few minutes of leaving the doctor’s office, Colt complained of a sore throat, threw up, passed out, choked on his puke, and stopped breathing. My husband ran him from the parking lot into the ER lifeless! My son was in full-blown anaphylactic shock, was put on a ventilator, having multiple seizures, flat lining, and being shocked back to life. The breathing tube was shoved down his airway and collapsed a lung.

It was touch and go for a few hours, we were ‘life flighted’ to a close by children’s ICU. In the two and half hours it took to stabilize him and be flown by helicopter, he flat lined multiple time and accumulated two full pages of code blue reports. On landing he was treated by tons of doctors, nurses and specialists all working together to save him. 

After nearly 48 hours on a breathing machine, and more medicine I’ve had in my life, my baby boy starting breathing his own breaths while still on the machine.

He fought a horrible battle – all due from having a vaccine reaction from ONE vaccine. I will never take the chance any vaccine on my children again!!

Once he left the hospital in April we had some asthma issues, which have now recently came back. All his brain scans came back fine. Luckily he was only a few minutes not breathing. I couldn’t imagine if we were far from an emergency room what might have happened. Our doctor’s office is located inside the same building. We fought to get him medically exempt from all vaccines, and the doctor did admit his reaction was a direct result from the varicella vaccine.

Colt carries an Eppie pin, uses an inhaler daily and takes liquid medication to control asthma and one for fast relief. He can’t tolerate any gelatin (it’s in some vaccines including varicella). We were always told he had eczema, but come to find out it’s a food allergy. Now that we’ve cut it out of his diet, his skin is eczema free.

This fall he tested high on the dyslexia scale. We’re working 5 days a week with a reading analyst, and twice a week with speech therapy.

Waffles – Again!

Belgium style waffle makers have larger indentations

Belgium style waffle makers have larger indentations

All recipes are a work in progress! I am getting consistency good results with this combination and wanted to share it with you! Where possible I use local organic ingredients! Bob’s Red Mill is a great company to support because it is employee owned, AND is the best source of brown rice flour and tapioca flour I have found. In presenting recipes I like to intermingle my ingredient list with the method. I hope this is helpful to you! This recipe makes about 6 ‘not quite full’ size waffles in a ‘Belgium waffle’ style waffle iron. It you fill it full, it will probably make 4 waffles. When I used my other waffle iron – which has now been retired – it would make about 8 ‘not quite full’ size waffles. I combine everything in one bowl and mix by hand. Make extra to freeze for a handy future breakfast! The recipe can be doubled, perhaps tripled if you have a lot of people to feed, or want a lot to store in the freezer!

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup kefir (or buttermilk, or milk with 1 Tbl lemon added)

Add:

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan  salt

Whisk all together. It should be bubbly, then Add:

  • ± 1/2 cup melted coconut oil or butter, or a combination

Add:

  • ½ cup Bob’s Red Mill tapioca flour
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill brown rice flour

Mix just until thoroughly combined. Spoon about 1/3 cup of the batter onto the hot waffle iron. Cook until the light changes colors (or follow the procedure for your particular brand of waffle maker).

This recipe is #glutenfree and #sugarfree. If you are following a strict #dairyfree diet, I would substitute pure water for the milk kefir. I have substituted water in pancake recipes in the past and found excellent results. Let me know (in the comments below) if you try it!

The Tetanus PUSH

baby-boobooA child falls and cuts themselves on a fairly clean object. A parent takes them to the ER or Urgent Care for stitches. The staff ask if they are up-to-date on vaccines, and then PUSH hard to give a “tetanus” shot. Parent declines, and the staff threatens to call CPS or a social worker.

If you ever find yourself in this situation, this is what you need to know:

  1. Tetanus bacteria, known as Clostridium tetani, is an anaerobic bacteria, meaning it can’t survive in oxygenated environments. If the wound being treated is bleeding, or has bled, there is extremely low likelihood of tetanus infection.
  2. Just because you get cut on metal (rusty or not) it doesn’t automatically mean there is tetanus bacteria present. Tetanus is primarily found in soil or manure.
  3. Even if there was a deep puncture wound that did not bleed that was caused by an object that had tetanus bacteria on it, giving a tetanus vaccination AFTER the exposure is of no value. The vaccine is not an “instant tetanus killer”; it is well known that the tetanus vaccine takes about two weeks for the body to produce antibodies against tetanus. Giving a ‘tetanus shot’ after an injury provides no benefit.
  4. If there were serious concerns about tetanus exposure (a deep non bleeding wound in a farm-like environment with a lot of exposure to manure) then the ONLY thing that could help (other than allowing the wound to bleed, if possible, and cleaning the wound with soap and water or hydrogen peroxide) would be the TiG shot (tetanus immunoglobulin) which is an anti-toxin, not a vaccine. If you agree to a TiG shot, be sure to examine the box or vial BEFORE they inject it – nurses have been known to ‘mistakenly’ give the DTaP but tell you they are giving TiG.
  5. There is no ‘tetanus only’ vaccine available in the United States. When you are offered a ‘tetanus shot’ in an ER or by the doctor, they will administer either the DTaP or TDaP, depending on your age; a 3 in 1 cocktail vaccine consisting of Diphtheria, Tetanus & Pertussis (whooping cough) bacteria, and up to 625 mcg of aluminum.

As a strategy to support your claims, I highly recommend the following actions:

  1. Ask for (demand) the complete vaccine package insert for the DTaP/TDaP. Point out the ingredients, especially the aluminum. Point out the multiple adverse reactions that could potentially happen to your child if they inject this vaccine.
  2. Point out that neither the nurse, doctor, nor hospital can be held liable should any adverse event happen as a result of receiving the vaccine they are pushing.
  3. Ask for the contact information of the supervisor for each person pushing you to give this vaccine. Make a note of this information.
  4. Ask to speak to the patient liaison representative of the facility, or the supervisor on duty. Alternatively, phone your legal advisor.[1]
  5. File a complaint against all staff pushing the vaccine and seeking to involve social services. Bullying of parents needs to be noted so that it can be stopped.
  6. Use your cell phone to record all conversations.

This situation is happening every single day. I have personally learned about many children who experience significant vaccine injury from being pushed to accept the DTap in an ER. Even one shot can cause a serious reaction.

Doctors should know this information, but often they don’t. Please don’t let their ignorance of tetanus push you to agree to a completely ineffective and potentially harmful strategy for your child.

If a medical establishment is threatening to call, or does call CPS, removal of your child is not a fait accompli – you need to remain diplomatic and factual. Don’t be condescending or superior. The role of every CPS case worker is to investigate all complaints. In the face of a calm, rational parent, they have no reason to remove your child from your care. While it is understandable that any parent facing the threat of child removal may fell threatened and become angry, you will be much better protection for your child by restraining your strong emotions, rather than letting the CPS representative experience the full brunt of your anger!

Battling to protect our children can be extremely challenging. Facing up to the giant medical establishment is a daunting proposition. Don’t blow it by losing your cool. In your mind, imagine yourself as a calm attorney rationally presenting your case. You can’t lose because the facts and the science are on your side. However, if you become a raging emotional basket case, they will use that against you to push even harder to take your child away.

[1] “I say the best protection is a preexisting relationship with a friendly attorney. While at the hospital, call the attorney immediately on the first sign of trouble. When the social worker starts the bully routine, the first thing to say is that your attorney is already aware of the situation. If the social worker just wants to “interview” you, tell him or her that you’d love to answer their questions, but they should go through the proper legal channels, I.e. they should make the request for the interview through your attorney. If they are making immediate threats or issuing ultimatums, what to do depends on state law and the particular circumstances. In all cases when bringing a child to the hospital, bring a voice recording device in your pocket or purse and have it recording as soon as you get there. There are now free apps for this purpose available for your smart phone. This is the best and least intrusive way to document medical bullying.” Thomas M.

Did You Know…

Please watch the video – especially the segment starting a around 6 minutes where a doctor shares some of these startling facts.

  • The USA has had only 1 case of polio in the last 40 years. There is virtually a zero risk of contracting true debilitating polio in the USA today.
  • 1 million people hit deer in the USA last year and 200 of those people died from the collision.
  • Only five people died from Whooping Cough last year, and only one was under 12 months.
  • You are forty times more likely to die from hitting a deer than from contracting WC!
  • 1961-versus-2016-shotsFour million babies are injected at birth with the Hepatitis B vaccine but only 37-100 of their moms have Hepatitis B but don’t know it.
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield pays paediatricians $400 per child when they maintain a specific high percentage rate of children fully up-to-date on vaccines.
  • If a Doctor deviates from the CDC recommendations and the “standard of care” they could be at risk of losing their medical licence.
  • A “mandated reporter” is required by Federal and State law to report to CPS anyone who injects a child with the ingredients that a vaccine contains. Yet vaccines are considered safe.
  • Vaccine ingredients include: formaldehyde, aluminum, mercury, polysorbate 80, glutaraldehyde, 2-phenoxyethanol. bovine extract, sodium chloride, calf serum, lactalbumin hydrolysate, neomycin sulphate, polymyxin B, yeast protein, animal DNA fragments, human DNA fragments from aborted human fetal tissue.
  • The characteristics of autism and mercury poisoning are virtually identical.
  • A doctor who supports vaccine choice and informed consent by parents could lose around $700,000 per year by NOT giving vaccines.
  • Any doctor who disagrees or questions CDC regulations is labeled as a “Quack.”
  • The entire vaccine schedule recommended by the CDC has never been tested for safety.
  • This is the only industry in the USA that you can’t sue for faulty products. Since the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed by Congress in 1986 all vaccine manufacturers have been protected.
  • The current CDC schedule recommends three times the number of shots that were recommended before the NCVIA of 1986 was passed.
  • Children are now recommended to receive 33 doses of vaccines in the first year of life; 50 doses of vaccines by the time they go to school; and 76 doses of 14 vaccines by the age of 18.

Yummy Pancakes

img_3388

These delicious pancakes are not only YUMMY and LOVED by all ages, they are also  #paleo, #glutenfree #dairyfree #sugarfree and #healthy! All ingredients are as organic and local as possible!

Batter blended in a Vita Mix. Pours easily and makes nice circles.

Batter blended in a Vita Mix. Pours easily and makes nice circles.

My good friend, April, mom of many, shared this amazingly simple recipe with me. It’s too good not to share…

  • 1 or 2 very ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8t. baking powder
  • a squirt of vanilla
  • dash of Himalayan salt

Mash everything together with a fork. Or, if you have a blender or food processor, dump in all the ingredients and process for a minute or so. I prefer the texture and result from using the Vita Mix, but use what you have.

Batter made using the mashed method. Still delicious!

Batter made using the mashed method. Still delicious!

Heat coconut oil in a skillet for several minutes to a medium heat (if skillet is too cool the batter may stick and be much harder to turn). Pour by spoonfuls and cook. Flip and cook on the other side. Makes 14 or so small pancakes and can easily be doubled. Serve with organic maple syrup, honey, fruit, yogurt, cinnamon, butter, etc. Choose whatever combination appeals to you!

So simple. So fast. So delicious! So healthy! A great treat for anyone trying to adjust to  gluten free.

Gardasil Injury is REAL

diane-harper-on-hpvThere are so many similarities in all of these girls’ stories. They were pushed and bullied to get the Gardasil vaccine by a doctor they trusted. They were told “This vaccine will prevent you from getting cancer.” Don’t believe the marketing. This vaccine is harming girls on a grand scale. Every family must research the truth.

When these girls experienced severe reactions after the vaccine, all connection to the Gardasil shots were repeatedly denied by the medical professionals. These girls were in severe pain. Symptoms varied widely, and were horrific. Many of these girls were not able to get out of bed, not able to go to school, couldn’t walk, have serious ongoing digestive issues, and many other serious results. Seeking medical care resulted in multiple visits to doctors, specialists, and often psychiatrists because the conclusion was that all the symptoms were ‘just in their head’ or a result of stress. They call it “Conversion Disorder” because the many specialists cannot find a reason for the severe physical symptoms, but refuse to investigate the possibility that it could be caused by all the aluminum in the Gardasil vaccine, along with the other ingredients.

Any supposed ‘benefit’ from this shot is not worth the vast suffering that too many families have experienced as a result of Gardasil vaccine. This vaccine should be re-called immediately. Enough.

Meet the girls (and one boy) injured by Gardasil:

Jacqueline Duncan was a dedicated dancer; vibrant, healthy, full of energy and vitality. Now she spends most of her days in bed. She is in constant pain and has no energy. In 2011, while she was sick, she was pushed to get the Gardasil vaccine. The doctor said to her father, “So you want your daughter to get cancer?” She was given the 2nd shot in 2013. The doctors she saw while in extreme pain just treated her like it was all in her head. Today she is 19 years old and only recently learned about the reality of Gardasil injury syndrome impacting thousands of girls after they were injected. Gardasil injury damages the entire family.

 

Caitlyn Kerry was pushed into getting the Gardasil vaccine, but was never warned how drastic the changes in her life would be. She had all three of the Gardasil doses.  She just turned sixteen and her life has been totally derailed for the last two years. She was a Green Belt in Karate, walked extensively, enjoyed life, school and her family. Her mom is a special education teacher in the same high school. Now, she continues to struggle daily with severe pain, often confined to a wheelchair and severe seizures. She cannot walk, or do Karate.

 

Kerry Hughes, 15 was pushed and bullied to get the Gardasil shot in addition to the TDaP and Meningitis vaccines in 2013. The doctor assured her the only side effects would be a sore arm and maybe some dizziness. The reaction was progressive and gradual. Diagnosed with “conversion disorder” which is the medical way of saying, ‘it’s all in your head.’ She know experiences daily headaches, deep muscle pain, POTS,

 

Britt Fiste from Ohio eloquently describes her horrific experience of serious longterm disability caused by the Gardasil vaccine which she was pushed to get by the doctor at the age of 21. She had two of the three doses of Gardasil and now lives with constant pain. “Why can’t they admit that what they are doing is wrong? It shouldn’t be about money, it should be about human beings. The medical field was created to save lives, not destroy them, but this Gardasil vaccine is destroying lives.”

 

Leah, from Ohio, was 11 when she was given the Gardasil vaccine in 2013. She got all three doses, despite many many extreme side effects, all denied by the many doctors she visited.

 

Caitlin paid the ultimate price after years of horrific suffering brought on by the Gardasil vaccine. Her mom’s tells the full story to Polly in Atlanta.

 

Colton, from Utah, was also pushed to get the Gardasil shot. Gardasil is now recommended for boys from the age of nine. Colton was 13, healthy and strong. He received all three doses of the Gardasil vaccine. After the third dose he has a severe reaction which has changed his life forever. After the Gardasil injury he must wear this breathing apparatus permanently. Colton was hospitalised for 88 days with severe paralysis. His doctor did acknowledge the connection to the Gardasil vaccine and reported it to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System). The doctors continue to try to get Colton and his mom to accept the flu vaccine.

 

Five years ago Jennifer, a 25-year-old married mother with a three-year old daughter, was bullied into accepting the Gardasil vaccine. She refused at first, but the nurse’s pitch that it was “Anti-Cancer” finally made her agree to receive it. Within 48 hours she was in the hospital. She didn’t make the connection to the Gardasil vaccine. After the third dose (yes, she got all three, never putting together the severe reaction she had to the first two) she has been continuously sick with seizures, vision loss, numbness, internal tremors, brain fog, insomnia, fatigue. Believing the doctors denials, it took the family two years to understand the connection of her extreme disability and the Gardasil vaccine.

Chia Breakfast

img_3352

A refrigerator stocked with six portions of Chia Breakfast! What a great way to start the day!

We all love fast food.  Many times we NEED fast food.  We have a deadline, a place to be, an important reason to be there, but not enough time for eating our healthy breakfast. Chia is a great plant based source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids and is extremely versatile.

img_3350It is time to think differently.  What can I make that is fast, nutritious, good for me, AND will travel well? Chia breakfast to go.  The following is more of a guide than a recipe – personalise this process and make it your own! My quantities are only rough estimates – I very rarely measure anything!

Foundation ingredients:

  • Chia seeds (about 1/2 T per serving)
  • Water to cover
  • Homemade kefir or plain yogurt (±1/3 Cup per serving)
  • Nuts
Chopped fresh ginger, jalapeño pepper, and turmeric

Chopped fresh ginger, jalapeño pepper, and turmeric

  • Goji Berries, Raisins or other dried fruit
  • Seeds, sunflower or pumpkin
  • Honey
  • Fruit, chopped (apple, pear, pineapple)
  • Berries, fresh or frozen (cherries, blueberries, strawberries, etc.)
  • Veggies, chopped especially celery, cucumber, or kale. Celery is a great to add because it naturally helps pull metals from the body i.e. ‘detox’ and I love the crunch it provides!
  • Ginger, chopped fresh
Fresh Turmeric

Fresh Turmeric

Optional ingredients, adjust to taste:

  • Cinnamon (boosts metabolism)
  • Salt (Himalayan for mineral boost)
  • Turmeric (fresh is available, great anti-inflammatory)
  • Jalapeño pepper, fresh, chopped (anti viral)
  • Coconut, fresh or large flake
  • Coconut oil (A great brain boost, stir in fast after you add the veggies, so it doesn’t clump!)
  • Hemp seeds (also known as Hemp Hearts)
  • 1 Tbl raw cacao powder
  • 1 Tbl raw maca powder
  • Flax seeds, ground (not too much)

For those who are more hard-core focus on more veggies (celery, cucumber, kale), more superfoods and less fruit. Adding hemp can be expensive, but it provides a great energy source. We’re all at different stages of our journey, but I think most people will be able to find some way to modify this concept so that they can enjoy it.  If you decide to have eggs for breakfast, or want to do “intermittent fasting”, you could always save your chia breakfast for lunch!

img_3349If it seems like a lot of effort, remember, you are preparing breakfast for several days in advance. I like to organise my breakfast ingredients into three categories: refrigerator, freezer, and pantry. This helps me streamline the preparation process.

Is Giving Multiple Vaccines at Once Safe?

seizure-babyMy goal is to educate parents so that this doesn’t happen to you. Please share with anyone you know who is pregnant or has a new baby. Sometimes grandparents also need an education. While it can be hard to educate those we love who may have different viewpoints, there are some strategies that are more effective than others.

Facts every parent needs to know:

  1. Not all babies handle vaccines well.
  2. The entire vaccine schedule has NEVER been tested for safety. Every day 2, 4, 6, 12, and 18 month old babies are injected with MULTIPLE vaccines, yet this combination has never been tracked or studied for safety given in this way. By 6 months a baby will receive 34 vaccines via 16 needles* containing 60 antigens. (See more: The USA/CDC Vaccine Schedule)

Please educate yourself on the safety and the risks versus benefits of vaccines BEFORE you need to. Learn about the reality of vaccine injury from parents who have personal direct experience. The following story was written in October 2016, from a mom who watched her daughter react to the shots given to her at the four month ‘well baby appointment.’

I was fine with Vaccines until my daughter got sick. She was perfectly healthy at birth and everything was fine. Her Pediatrician said she was just perfect. I took her to her 2 month appointment and she got her shots. After that I didn’t notice anything, or perhaps the symptoms weren’t so obvious. Anyways, we went on October 3 to her next doctor’s appointment and she got her 4 month shots. I already didn’t like how the nurse jabbed them in her thighs. We took her home afterward and put her down for a nap. When she woke up she was inconsolable. That’s when I noticed she was jerking. I thought it was from the pain and I did the best I could to comfort her. The jerking did not stop, and I kept thinking it would wear off. By Friday I decided to call the doctor and they told me at first it couldn’t have been the vaccines it had to be gas. No way. I called again and they told me to take her to the ER. So I did. Now after an EEG, MRI, and several labs for metabolic disorders and genetic testing, we are waiting for answers. Normal MRI. The labs are taking longer to come back. The EEG said that the jerks are myoclonic seizures. I personally think it’s the vaccines and in particular I think it’s the aluminum in the vaccines. That’s why we are waiting on a test for aluminum. What’s crazy is how hard we have to press them to do the test. They are convinced, because of her small size, she must have something else going on. Her head size is at the 5th percentile and her weight is at the 10th. Her height is normal. I think it was the vaccinations and how her body handles the aluminum. I’m going to have to do a lot of research now on vaccines. I’m so glad I found this group. I just thought I’d share my story. Still in the hospital. I will let you know what we find out. KAS, baby’s mom

The idea that giving so many vaccines at once could cause damage might be new to you. If you want to delay shots. You can. If you want to give less shots you can. You are the parent and have the right to decide what preventative medical treatments are best for your baby. If you decide to give any vaccine for any reason, please read this first so that you can try and minimise the impact on your precious baby. A paren’t most significant role is to protect the brain of their most vulnerable young infants.

*Sometimes vaccines are combined into a multiple combination such as PEDIARIX and INFANRIX, so the actual number of needles used could vary slightly.

 

The USA/CDC Vaccine Schedule

newborn skin to skin

What shots are recommended for my new baby?

What shots does my baby actually need?

Start your research with the first vaccines suggested for babies and the illnesses that you feel most concerned about and work through them all.

The current recommended shots for newborns in the first few hours of life in the USA are:

  1. Vitamin K
  2. Hepatitis B (1st of 3 doses).

At 2 months it is recommended that babies be vaccinated with:

  1. Hep B (2nd of 3 doses)
  2. Rotavirus (RV, 1st of 3 oral doses)
  3. Diptheria, Tetanus, & acellular Pertussis (DTaP, 3 different antigens, 1st of 5 doses)
  4. Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib, 1st of 3 or 4 doses)
  5. Pneumococcal conjugate (PVC13, 13 different antigens, 1st of 4 doses)
  6. Inactivated poliovirus (IPV, 1st of 3 doses)

That is a total of 8 vaccines (±5 needles*) with a total of 20 antigens given to a 2 month old baby regardless of size (how much they weigh) or gestation period (preemies through full-term babies are all given the exact same dose).

At 4 months it is recommended that your baby gets a repeat of all of the above, except Hep B for a total of 7 vaccines (±4 needles*) with 19 different antigens.

At 6 months there is a little flexibility, but your baby usually gets a repeat of all the vaccines given at 2 months:

  1. Hep B (3rd of 3 doses)
  2. Rotavirus (3rd of 3 oral doses)
  3. DTaP (3 different antigens, 3rd of 5 doses)
  4. Hib (3rd of 3 or 4 doses)
  5. PCV13 (13 different antigens, 3rd of 4 doses)
  6. IPV (3rd of 3 doses)

A total of 8 vaccines (±5 needles*) with 20 different antigens.

At 6 months a flu shot is also recommended. Babies are recommended to have two flu shots, four weeks apart, and thereafter they are recommended to have a flu shot every year of their life.  Each flu shot contains approximately 3 antigens, including the controversial H1N1. All multi-dose flu shots contains approximately to 25mcg of mercury in the form of thimerosal. The thimerosal in the flu shot and the aluminum in the other vaccines can stimulate synergistic toxicity. Flu shots have been shown by the Cochrane Collaboration (an up to date, detailed look at all the scientific evidence and research) to be ineffective in protecting young children from the flu.

By 6 months a cumulative total of 24 vaccines (±1 needles*) with 62 antigens is delivered to most babies. 

Most parents are not aware of how many shots nor what they contain. Many doctors are not even familiar with the ingredients in the vaccines and the possible adverse events to be aware of, yet they confidently assert that they are all safe. The combination of all these shots has never been tested for safety.

At 12 or 15 months your baby could be given:

  1. His (4th of 4 doses)
  2. PVC13 (13 antigens, 4th of 4 doses)
  3. Measles, Mumps & Rubella (MMR, 3 antigens, 1st of 2 doses)
  4. Varicella for Chicken Pox (VAR, 1st of 2 doses)
  5. Hepatitis A (HepA, 1st of 2 doses)

A total of 7 vaccines (±5 needles*) with 19 different antigens.

At 18 months your baby could be given:

  1. DTaP (4th of 5 doses)
  2. Hepatitis A (2nd of 2 doses)
  3. Flu Vaccine (yearly)

A total of 5 vaccines (±3 needles*) with 7 different antigens.

Before your  baby is two years old, the CDC says they need 36 vaccines against 14 different infections, delivered via 24 needles, and containing 91 different antigens.

Between 4 to 6 years children are recommended to get repeat boosters for

  1. DTaP (5th dose)
  2. Polio (4th dose)
  3. MMR (2nd dose)
  4. Varicella (2nd dose)

A total of 8 vaccines (±4 needles*) with 8 different antigens.

In total, by the time your child goes to school they will have received 46 doses of vaccines (±29 needles*) with 100 different antigens. These injections bombard the immature immune system which is expected to recognise and mount a specific defense against each one. See further CDC complete recommended vaccination schedule chart.[1]

Children are recommended to get additional vaccines at 11 years old: Meningococcal, TDaP (the adult form of DTaP, a ‘booster’), and HPV vaccine (3 doses). Please research these shots carefully before accepting them for your children at this very sensitive stage of life.

Some questions you might want to ask your doctor or any older people who are advising you to give your baby all the shots on the schedule on time;

  1. Why have there been so many vaccinations added since I was a child?
  2. What were the results of studies looking at the combined impact of all of these vaccines injected at the same visit? (To date there have been no studies on the combined cumulative impact of all these vaccines).
  3. If my baby has a serious reaction, who is responsible? How will I get medical care if it is needed? (The CDC, your doctor and all vaccine manufacturers have zero liability in the event of any bad reaction to vaccines given. The parents are 100% responsible for the risk of vaccine injury.)
  4. What signs should I be aware of after a vaccine that might suggest a bad reaction?
  5. How have doctors been trained to recognize vaccine reactions?
  6. Do you know how to report an adverse reaction to vaccines throuth VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System)?

One reason this information is overwhelming is because most of us got shots when we were children. We think the shots they want to give our babies are pretty much the same as what we had. We are not familiar with the current recommended schedule. Take some time to familiarise yourself with the schedule, with each disease, and the risks of having the disease versus the risk of the vaccine.

An additional factor to consider is that there have been no studies on the carcinogenic impact of most vaccines – i.e. is there a likelihood that this vaccine, or this combination of vaccines could increase childhood cancer rates? It has not been studied.

Additionally, vaccines have not been studied to determine if they will impact the future fertility of your child.

Hopefully this short summary has been helpful for you as you seek to navigate the maze of information to you on the BEST way to keep your baby safe and healthy. Many parents are shocked to realise the number of vaccines now recommended for children. Vaccines are NOT required for school attendance in 47 states. A religious exemption can be submitted by anyone regardless of your religious affiliation, or no religious affiliation. All states must accept a religious exemption in lieu of vaccines except CA, MS, and WV.

I know new parents need lots of sleep. They don’t need to be losing sleep because of fear about vaccinations. As you gain information on this subject, you will be able to make a confident decision so you can sleep peacefully at night! If you do decide to give your baby any vaccine for any reason, please read this first so that you can take some important steps to help protect your baby. Remember, the older the better, the heavier the better, the fewer the better.
