Patient discussion about newborn

Q. Should I vaccinate my newborn against Hepatitis B? I am 9 months pregnant and am expecting to give birth anytime soon. I understood that my newborn will receive a vaccine against Hepatitis B in the hospital. Why is this so?

A. because this is bullshit! Hey! Wake up! the lymph system of your baby will only be "ready and finished" after three years! so how should your baby manage a toxic vaccination? do you know what they put in the vaccination? they put hepatitis B pathogens/virus with the hope that your baby will be able to build an anti-hepatitis B pathogen and so manage itself in the future hepatitis B! how should your baby do that, when his lymph-system just started to develop itself and will only be ready in three years? please read in the links i send to you:

before you would like to go on with any vaccination, you should check out this very long list of links:

http://www.aegis.ch/neu/links.html

at the bottom you will also find links in english. vaccinations in general are very disputable/dubious and it is probably time that we learn about it.

Q. Is there a bigger risk of autism for the newborn in twin pregnancy?

A. thanks Dominicus!
you're great...

Q. I gave birth a short while ago, and since then I just can't stand my husband. is that normal? It's very strange, because we used to be such a great couple but since the baby came into our lives, I am tired all the time, and basicaaly every thing he does gets me so annoyed. Could it be the hormones? will we get back to how we used to? (This is a great site - I feel I can finally ask questions I was too ashamed to ask my family and friends :)

A. you are tiered. it's normal. if you get more then 2 hours a night sleep you are lucky. when i'm tired i am annoyed. very natural. you can add the hormones- and you get couple of weeks of hell...my wife was unbearable after birth.
