I’m sick of seeing this on Teddy’s chart. What it should say is “Teddy has a well-educated, caring mother who has striven to do what is best for her child.” And perhaps in the details section, it could include some verbiage about the CDC’s recommended schedule being based on the desire to do the greatest number of shots in the shortest amount of time for compliance reasons (since well child visit attendance drops off the older a child gets), rather than looking at what’s really best for the child’s overall health.
Yeah, I haven’t let him have shots when he’s been recovering from an infection. I think his body has enough to deal with fighting off a bloodstream infection to not also have to shoot him with chemicals and viruses. I’ve only allowed a max of 2 shots at a time (we were doing just 1 at a time, but then he had SO many infections, that got to be difficult to continue) because, again, I think shooting him up with THAT MUCH stuff at one time is just ridiculous.
Never mind that the CDC schedule is “recommended” not “required,” and therefore it’s technically not possible to be objectively “deficient.”
