Is it better to delay my babies jabs until 6months old? Im terrified whats in them and what short and long term effects they will have.

What do you mean by 'better'?

I can never see the point of delaying them tbh, I can understand not doing them at all but what danger do you think there is at two months that no longer exists at six months?

What's your reasoning and what are you scared about? Perhaps you can talk it through here?

I've had all the jabs so far for my 10m old, and only the first had any noticeable effect (slight fever, easily controlled with one dose of calpol; some post-rotavirus gross nappy). Longterm, I'm just happy that he's received help against some pretty nasty diseases.
