Week 8 is here, and I am taking baby K to the GP for the routine eight-week check.
When booking the appointment, I was told that straight after the GP check, baby would need to go to the nurse for her first set of immunisations. There is no choice in the matter; it is compulsory for babies to get their immunisations.
However, my worry is that she is so small how will her little body be able to deal with all these injections and toxic material injected into her? I am left wondering, how do we know that these injections are safe and can their little bodies cope with all this toxic matter at such a young and vulnerable age? Do many people question this or do they just accept this is the norm because we are told that it is essential for the baby to have these vaccinations ?
I ended up talking to so many people who did not allow their children to have vaccinations, they all reported that their children have never become ill with these ailments or any ailments which are familiar to children. In fact, a homeopath I know told me that the best immunity for the baby is breastfeeding. I recall this being discussed at the NCT class and the hospital that breastfeeding, if you can manage it is the best for baby.
So I asked myself, is it not better to support a baby’s immune system naturally by breastfeeding, all babies know instinctively where to go for mother’s milk, and that’s the only thing babies want once they are born.
As it so happens in nature, mothers milk is the best for supporting baby’s immune system, as it contains all of the mother’s antibodies and nutrients from breast milk, the baby naturally strengthens their immune system.
