Justin was small for his age, being that he was 5 weeks early and had to have a dose of surfactant due to this. I was a few weeks late on getting Justin his shots, but the night we came home, he had a slight fever, (normal), and then later developed a cough. The night he developed the cough he passed away. Up until that night he was a very healthy boy, gaining weight like a champ. Remember we had just gone to the dr. a couple weeks before, and had no health problems what-so-ever. This got me curious and I went back to look at Riley and Jacob's baby books, to see if I had written anything in theirs when they got their shots. Jacob was a few months behind on his shots and didn't get his first DPT until close to 5 months. My notes in his baby book were, reaction: Fever for two days, I remember that fever, it was awful and we thought about taking him to the hospital for it. Shortly after that he was placed on nebulizer treatments. I fully believe that it could have had a worse effect had he gotten his shots on time, seeing as how he was also a nicu baby, who developed respitory distress caused by a very hard, and extended labor. I had never put two and two together until I started reading up more on this.
Vaccines are full of toxins, arsenic, lead, and mercury being among them. Here you do everything possible to have a healthy pregnancy, which I did, all of my pregnancies were very healthy; but we try to not consume anything that could be potentially harmful to the baby, this including anything and everything except tylenol and prenatal vitamins, so why is that they get these vaccinations so soon in life, before they ever leave the hospital they are already given a vaccine for Hib, and they are given around 18 vaccinations before they reach a year old! Vaccines have been linked to Autism, ADHD, RSV, and SIDS.
Update: April 27, 2012 I talked with the dr. office that administered the vaccinations he was given Hib, IPV, Dtap, PCV, Heb B, and Rota, all of these were given on the same day; July 25, 2011, Justin passed away 2 weeks later. Here is the information I found last night:
A Close Look at the DPT Vaccine
In case you want to choose to not get one of the vaccines here is further information on the DPT vaccine (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus toxoid). They found that two-thirds of the babies that died of SIDS had gotten the DPT vaccine. Of these, 6.5% died within 12 hours of vaccination; 13% within 24 hours; 26% within 3 days; 37% within a week; 61% within 2 weeks and 70% within 3 weeks.
DPT and Dtap, are different vaccines, but both prove to have a correlation with SIDS and other serious side effects. In Japan they started administering the Dtap at 2 years of age, rather than 2 months and the number of infant deaths went down drastically.
Here are a couple sites that explains more on the correlation between SIDS and vaccinations. http://www.thinktwice.com/sids.htm
