shouldn't be any problem...only result is that your ds won't be immunised therefor not fully protected iykwim...
DS was "missed" so never started the immunisation couse till he was over 8 weeks (I think...by then he should have been on the 2nd batch) BUT then due to ill health, coughs,colds etc he wasn't given the 3rd immunisations till he was 6 months old.!
TBH it was a concern for me as ds is due an operation (3rd one following birth) so I wanted him to have been immunised asap. hth x
no totally doesn't matter., my baby was in hospital for the 1st 6 months of her life and no one knew what was wrong, so we weren't allowed to give her any vaccines as they could not guarantee it would not harm her. So she didn't start any until she was 6 months and its ok. don't worry!
DS3 is 15 months old and still hasn't had the third lot - whoops! GP practise have been onto me this week about it. DS's 1 and 2 didn't have their MMR until they were 5yo. I feel much happier giving them their jabs late when they are a bit bigger and physically more robust.
my DS is 4 and hasn't had any at all. So the sky does not necessarily fall in...
A short delay will be fine. Don't forget you can have two babies the same age who have massively different weights and sizes. The schedule is designed around approximates.
