I am neither convinced I should delay vaccinations for Dylan (uh, delay them more than I already have by means of forgetfulness, that is) nor am I filled with a sense of conviction that I'm doing the right thing by getting those shots ASAP.

So! You think we can talk about this subject without getting all pissed off at each other? I'm just curious about your take on vaccination schedules: did you go the typical route with regards to timing when your child was little (2 months, 4 months, 6 months, etc), or did you choose something different?
