Parenting: Are So Many Shots for Baby Safe?

Flu shot

For parents concerned about vaccines and the possibility of harm they may do, the newest research tests the “too many, too soon” theory, and encourages us to put it to rest.

Today the central worry questions the large number of vaccines given, and how many are given at one time, especially when they’re being administered to the vulnerable bodies of very young children. The new study, published online April 1 in the Journal of Pediatrics, found no relationship between the increased exposure to vaccines and autism.

As the number of recommended childhood vaccinations has grown over the decades, so have autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnoses – and in the public mind, the two have been difficult to separate.

Fifteen years ago, a now-discredited paper first started the controversy around vaccines and autism. That study described eight children who developed autism after receiving the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine. In big scarlet letters, “RETRACTED” now appears across that paper on the website of the prestigious British medical journal, The Lancet, which refuted the paper in 2010. In 2004, the Institute of Medicine (IOM), the health arm of the nonprofit National Academy of Sciences, concluded from its review of evidence that neither the MMR vaccine nor thimerosal, a preservative that is another focus of parents’ concern, causes autism. read more

Baby Kittens Found on West Dedham Street

Three tiny kittens were rescued from a South End back yard on Sunday.

A family first discovered the kittens a few days ago in their West Dedham Street backyard, then called in the Animal Rescue League of Boston.

“They weren’t able to find the mom, so they felt the best thing to do was bring them to us so they could be provided with around-the-clock care in a foster home,” Animal Rescue League said in a Facebook post.

The kittens are only two weeks old, so they are getting bottle feedings eery three hours, said the ARL.

“These babies are currently shacking up with one of our most experienced foster-parents beause they are unable to eat on their own,” the ARL wrote. “We sure are lucky to have such fabulous foster-parents at the League!”
