I thought diphtheria had been wiped out a long time ago, but my mother says that the vaccinations are still being given. Is it necessary for babies to be vaccinated?

Yes: As we all emphasize, the only truly eradicated vaccine preventable disease appears to be smallpox. Although some are rare, there are pockets of disease thruout the world. All it takes is one infected traveler interacting with a susceptible population to trigger a serious outbreak.

Other source for fev: There is another cause for your childs fussiness and fever. Hepatitis a vaccine is relatively benign, in that it is not known to cause fever or fussiness. Have him examined to find the source of the fever.

Can babies die after getting their vaccines?

Can babies die after getting their vaccines?

Interesting question: The number of deaths among unimmunized infants from pertussis has climbed from zero in the 1990's, to more than 30 last year. The deaths from millions of doses of the vaccine in the same period= zero. The pattern is similar for other vaccines, with less fatalities from those diseases. The risk benefit ratio shows vaccines to be the better choice, however, you will never convince some of that fact.

Why are so many vaccines recommended for babies?

Why are so many vaccines recommended for babies?

Diseases: Vaccinations for your baby are generally recommended to help prevent serious and deadly illnesses/diseases. The success of immunizations cannot be exaggerated enough--they are safe and the researchers who tried to suggest otherwise have been proven and admitted to being fraudulent.

Why is it suddenly dangerous to give an infant vaccines?

Why is it suddenly dangerous to give an infant vaccines?

Its not: Vaccines have been so successful that your grandparents were the last generation suffering from many of the diseases they prevent. Since they survived & never faced the epidemics with their own kids, they are easy prey for the playboy playmates& fraud based research that call them into question. Vaccine haters have caused preventable death rates to climb in the us, skip & your kid may be next.

Is it high needs infant or colic? Fussy all day n night and never seems satisfied. Not eating normal and just flat out miserable. Help, please!

Is it high needs infant or colic? Fussy all day n night and never seems satisfied. Not eating normal and just flat out miserable. Help, please!

Fussy baby: A pediatrician's evaluation and input are necessary. It could be formula-related, food- and medicine-related if breastfeeding, lactose intolerance if gassy and spitting up, acid reflux if regurgitating or vomiting to name a few. Tense moms tend to get colicky infants - try being calm. Take a break - have a close relative or a close friend take over for minutes or hours to rest &catch up on sleep.

Is it possible that the dpat vaccine be separated into 3 vaccines for babies?

Is it possible that the dpat vaccine be separated into 3 vaccines for babies?

Why ever?: There has been years of research done to combine these into one safe and effective vaccine and cut the discomfort involved with separate vaccines. They are not available separately. I view those who try to string out the shots based on the musings of a playboy bunny or well meaning docs as misguided. No baby should undergo extra pain over a myth.

What can the vaccines given to babies prevent?

What can the vaccines given to babies prevent?

Injury or death: The primary answer is that vaccines build up babies immunity to diseases. The list of available vaccines has more than tripled over the last 30 years as research has provided us with better vaccines against diseases. Many graveyards of the 1700-1950's are littered with little headstones of kids we lost. Unvaccinated kids still die in the us every year as a sad commentary about parents choices.

Why do babies get fussy about going to sleep even when they are tired?

Why do babies get fussy about going to sleep even when they are tired?

Change: A babies perception may be stressed as they enter into a sleep phase as they don't understand leaving an awake state. They are aware something is happening but don't wish it too. Try playing soothing white noise - spa music - in the background to help the baby relax. Avoid rocking to sleep as they will get used to it and will grow older and have sleep issues unless always rocked.
