4 months along…

June 1st, 2008 · No Comments

Aida had her 4 month follow up visit the other day and we are very blessed that she is doing great.  She came in at a healthy 15.1 lbs, 25″.  

Our pediatrician once again told us she was just ‘perfect’, which could mean that she IS perfect, or, our pediatrician, wise beyond his years, learned early on, tell parents their kids are ‘perfect’ and the rest of the visit will go fine.  In either case, she is doing well, growing, and is healthy.   It wasn’t all smiles though as Aida also required her 4 month set of vaccines, which is another area of debate as of late.  Not to go into too much detail but basically there is a vocal minority who believe autism is linked to thimerosal (mercury) perservative found in vaccines.  I’m not one of them, in fact, right at the time of her visit, Time had this article, which gives a fairly in depth look into the debate and comes up with a couple of important conclucsions:

  1. vaccinate your kids.  (even the researchers that published the potential link between thimerosal and autism and backed off their claims and have said not to based their conclusions as fact)
  2. thimerosal has not been used in the majority of vaccines since 2001.
