Immunization: Infant & Toddler

Mummy is not very responsible as mummy never wants to bother whether it's time to get En En for vaccination. I'm just so lousy, isn't it? All this while mummy just follow the immunization schedule in En En's pink book from the hospital she was borned and sorry to say up till today En En still never get her chicken pox vaccination yet.

Ok... ok... many mummies are wondering and asking why is it so... it's mummy's fault coz mummy think it's alright since En En never go to any day care center or mix around with other kids. So it's not really that bad if mummy delay the shot. One more thing is mummy thinks the more advanced that country the more weaken their natural immune system... so that's why they have so many types of vacccinations introduced. Mummy just don't know why having this weird mindset but it's actually true if compare children from India or Philipines (normally the developing countries) they are more strong even without proper or luxury medical aids and facilities. But when we turn to developed countries, it is where we found most children have higher risk of getting allergies, many more civilization diseases... this and that. Or maybe this is just merely mummy's thought?? Again it feels bad to see our little one suffer from fever, get cranky, moody and no appetite to eat after the jab! It just doesn't feel good :(

We do have very good medical facilities be it in private or government hospital. Mummy visited government hospital when preggie with En En because mummy had placenta previa according to gynea. But thank God En En was delivered full termed in a private hospital. After En En turned 6 months old, all her vaccinations were done at the government hospital.

Mummy just read up some immunizations articles from Baby Center and think there are some good reasons to get immuned rather than having that weird mindset to get jab!

Hey, better get her the chicken pox jab soon. Altho she doesn't get exposed directly, she may get it from u or ur hubs if u accidentally got in contact with someone with CP. U may hv the immunization so it may not show. With the jab, the chances of a full break-out is minimised, altho not 100% protection. Better play safe, rite?

hmm... why don't we let them build their own antibody towards CP? During our times, our parent also never bring us for CP vaccination... I'm just wondering.
