I know this is a sensitive subject. I know even better today, thanks to Facebook. Sigh.
When we were pregnant with little M we researched, but came to no real conclusions. The battle between mandatory vaccinations and vaccinations causing autism and immune disorders was rampant. It still is. Luckily for us we had an amazing pediatrician who wanted US to decide. He provided information, but left it up to us to choose what we wanted to do (I still think he is secretly anti-vaccinations, but I don't have any evidence).
I decided that I was VERY strongly against doing vaccinations at 2 months. Or even in the first year. It doesn't seem right to be pumping such a little body full of foreign toxins. Especially when you can't be sure that they are safe.
I understand why people want vaccinations. It has saved numerous amounts of lives. BUT. If you research the diseases that you are vaccinating for you will find that they are deadly among populations that do not have access to proper nutrition- do to war, post war, famine, poverty circumstances. I understand my MIL's fear of polio, she saw such devastating effects from it in post-war Germany. She also remembers hunger. Real hunger.
I chose to give vaccines, but to take extra precautions. We waited until she was over a year old. We gave her one at a time, and would not give her any if she wasn't in perfect health. For the next one, I may wait even longer.
It frustrates me that people don't research things for themselves. When they believe that non-vaccinated children get vaccinated children sick(????). And when they believe that the link between autism and neurological disorders and tainted vaccines have no connection. I blame the propaganda fed by corporate news organizations who are in cohoots with the big pharmaceuticals.
