Are we all moving over to the parents after treatment forum? I want to make sure we are all on the same one agian.

Angie - I am recovering well but I really wish I would have asked for more help. My mother-in-law wanted to fly down and stay a few weeks but I really wanted that time to get to know my baby but I could have really used her help. She is coming next week. We are so exhausted. We kind of have a routine. I have her all day and then when my husband gets home I sleep from 7-12 and then up with her till 5 and he takes she for an hour while I get ready for the day... and then of course I try to nap when I can. She eats every 3 hours and it takes about an hour to get her burped, changed and ready for sleep again... so it is a full time... 24-hour... around the clock job... it's wonderful but scarry too. When she is upset, I cant help but to worry.

So what is everyone doing about the vaccinations?

Anyone have issues with formula? I am supplementing. I pump about 1 ounce per feeding and supplement the other 1 1/2 with soy formula... doctor put her on that cause she was throwing up in the hospital. I really want to switch the soy... I am going to talk to the pedi about it tomorrow.

Hope all is well.

SPECIAL REPORT
AUTISM AND VACCINES AROUND THE WORLD:
Vaccine Schedules, Autism Rates, and Under 5 Mortality
Generation Rescue, Inc. April 2009
The United States has the highest number of mandated vaccines for children under 5 in the world (36,
double the Western world average of 18), the highest autism rate in the world (1 in 150 children, 10 times
or more the rate of some other Western countries), but only places 34th in the world for its children under
5 mortality rate. What’s going on?
Context: There is an intense debate over the correlation
between rising autism prevalence and the United States
vaccine schedule. The vaccine schedule for children
aged 5 and under has nearly tripled in 25 years. In 1983,
the Centers for Disease Control recommended 10
vaccines for this age group. Today, the
recommendation is 36 vaccines. Calls by advocacy
organizations for a “safer and leaner vaccine schedule”
have been dismissed, with health authorities implying
that mortality rates from childhood diseases would
materially increase.
Objective: To compare vaccine schedules, autism rates,
and under 5 mortality rates of the United States to other
countries to see if any differences emerge.
Design: A full publication and literature review was
completed to determine vaccine schedules and under 5
mortality rates for 30 countries, including the United
States. The 29 other countries all had lower (better)
under 5 mortality rates than the U.S. Additionally,
autism rates were compared for certain countries with
reliable, published autism prevalence data.
Results: The United States mandates the most vaccines
in the Western world (36), double the average of the 30
countries studied (18). All countries with lower vaccine
mandates have better under 5 mortality rates and many
have materially lower autism rates.
Conclusions: The analysis lends credibility to the
relationship between vaccines and autism and
challenges the public view of both the Centers for
Disease Control and American Academy of Pediatrics
that more vaccines is always positive for public health.
THE UNITED STATES has the most aggressive mandated vaccine schedule in the world. The vaccine
schedule has grown materially since 1990 (25 additional vaccines). Interestingly, the adoption rate of other
countries are far lower for recent vaccines (Varicella, Rotavirus, Hepatitis A & B, Flu) than they have been
for the “core” vaccines used to fight deadly disease (DTP, MMR, Polio). Today, there are 11 licensed
vaccines on the U.S. Recommended Immunization Schedule published annually by the Centers for Disease
Control. Many of the vaccines are administered multiple times. Table 1 depicts the evolution of the U.S.
vaccine schedule and also highlights the adoption rates of other Western Countries of each vaccine.
Generally speaking, the U.S. has been the early adopter of new vaccines.

UNDER 5 MORTALITY is a measure of country-specific child mortality rates before the age of 5. The
United Nations tabulates the data for all countries. The rates are expressed per 1,000 children born. The
United States is 34th in the world for under 5 mortality, tied with Greece and behind such diverse countries
as France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, Cuba, and Slovenia, to name a few. In Table 2, vaccine schedules
(where obtainable) and under 5 mortality rates are compared for the 30 countries studied. Note that all 29
other countries have lower (better) under 5 mortality rates than the U.S.

AUTISM PREVALENCE in the United States has soared. In 1970, Treffert et. al. published the first known
autism prevalence study in the United States, Epidemiology of Infantile Autism, with an autism prevalence rate
of less than 1 per 10,000. In 1987, Burd et. al. published a study, A prevalence study of pervasive developmental
disorders in North Dakota, showing an autism rate of 3.3 per 10,000. In 2007, the Centers for Disease Control’s
Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network released data showing that prevalence of
autism had grown to 66 per 10,000 or 1 in 150, an increase of more than 6,000% from the 1970 study.
Prevalence data on autism from other countries is limited. For purposes of this report, only journalpublished
prevalence data was used. Below, in Table 3, the United States current autism prevalence is
compared to certain other countries that met the following criteria: materially lower levels of mandated
vaccines and published autism prevalence data. For comparison purposes, the prevalence figures are also
expressed as a multiplier of the U.S. autism rate. For example, if a country has an autism rate of 1 in 2,000,
than the U.S. rate is 13-times greater, expressed as 13x.

Israel 11 1 in 1,000 viii 6.7 x 5.7 17
Denmark 12 1 in 2,200 ix 14.6 x 5.8 18
DISCUSSION
Worldwide vaccine schedules, autism rates, and under 5 mortality rates have not been previously
compared. The United States has the highest number of mandated vaccines of any country in the world, the
highest prevalence of autism in the world, and places 34th for under 5 mortality.
This study appears to lend credibility to the theory that the U.S. vaccine schedule is linked to the U.S.
epidemic of autism, particularly when compared to the published autism rates of other countries. Urgent
additional study is required. If it is determined that the U.S. vaccine schedule should be reduced, many
international models exist that appear to strike a successful balance between vaccines and mortality levels.

Congrats to all you mommies! Isn't it the best yet exhausting at the same time?

As far as vaccines I highly recommend "The Vaccine Book" by Robert Sears, as well as "What your doctor won't tell you about vaccines." I'm definitely doing all the research I can before getting ANY! I work with SEVERAL kids with Autism and so many of their parents swear on the immunization correlation with the start of their behavior changes.

How many of you are breastfeeding? Supplementing? Or, solely formula?

Cressy, I breastfeed most of the time...unless I'm exhausted because my milk dwindles then and I use formula.

cressicaw - yes I think we should move over to the parents board.

I am fromula feeding only. Breastfeeding didn't work for me and he has been on formula since 5 days old. We use SMA gold system.

tia - on the vaccinations. Is there anything else that correlates with the autism? I really don't know but there may be something else fundamentally different between countries. Freddie will be having all vaccinations as many of the diseases are life threatening. Although we obviously have less in the uk.

As far as I am concerned, vaccination is an absolute and very dangerous fraud. There is just NO WAY anyone with a vaccine is going to get anywhere near a child of mine.

As for getting a flu shot while expecting, this is what US neurosurgeon Dr Russell Blaylock MD says about it:

"I can think of nothing more insane than vaccinating a pregnant woman."

You can watch/download Dr Blaylock’s brilliant talk here:
