“Vaccination proponents have suggested that breastfeeding should be delayed in order to prevent immune factors within breast milk from inactivating vaccine-associated antibody titer elevations and vaccine potency.” – GreenMedInfo Summary
This actually came from a study published in the Journal of Pediatric Infections & Diseases in 2010.
Let me see if I can understand this thinking. Do not give baby the best nutrients and antibodies possible so the ingredients/disease in the vaccines to be more ‘effective’.
From the study:
“INTERPRETATION: The lower immunogenicity and efficacy of rotavirus vaccines in poor developing countries could be explained, in part, by higher titers of IgA and neutralizing activity in breast milk consumed by their infants at the time of immunization that could effectively reduce the potency of the vaccine. Strategies to overcome this negative effect, such as delaying breast-feeding at the time of immunization, should be evaluated.”
How sick are they trying to make our babies?
That is Bad Advice. Let’s talk about Good Advice.
Instead of taking away nature’s best way to nourish and protect our babies and injecting them with man made chemicals and diseases, let’s focus on what we can do to boost their immune system (with breastfeeding of course). This is not about if you choose to vaccinate or not, as I won’t judge either way, but what ALL of us can do to ensure the strong immune systems and health of our children either way.
Healthy diet for mom.
Baby led weaning and healthy diet for infant/young baby/toddler.
Consider a good Omega oil for you when nursing and your child when they start solids.
Start researching now on alternative treatments (home0paths, oils, etc) to help along side any allopathic treatments.
Studies are not the ‘tell all, be all’ for parenting, health, birth or life. Common sense and education are much more reliable. Do what you feel is best for your little ones, but do so in an informed manner!
