I waited until the Peds visit for 1 month. I am not exactly stoked about putting viruses into my baby who is minutes old.

We chose not too. I wasn't ok with injecting something foreign into my baby that was barely a few minutes old.

I did it. My outlook on vaccines is if I can prevent my child from getting a terrible disease with a couple seconds of discomfort I'm going to. I am all for vaccines.

All my kids have received it. I have received it as and adult as well, (it's only good for so long) i was a first responder at work. I'd rather have the immunizations done and have peace of mind they they have a less chance of getting something

We waited too. I don't really understand the reasoning if there is any for that vaccination for a baby with a healthy mom. Good job, Mommy for using your head and not just going with the crowd. We need to be smart and educated patients and advocates for our LO.

Hmm I'm not sure if my lo got it at the hospital or not.. Guess that's something for me to look into because I certainly don't remember being asked or talked to about it. He's 11m now but that's not the point.

I know several babies that have had terrible reactions to the Hep B vaccine and since Hep B is sexually transmitted or transmitted through needles (drugs) then I don't think an infant needs it. There's a long list of reactions reported following this vaccine stated on the insert...such as breathing problems, liver problems (jaundice), gastro problems (reflux and other issues), ezcema...etc
