[Leslie Carol Botha: Say what? Vaccines and powerful medications? Sedating babies is harmful to every system in their body. Parent's needs to be aware that both vaccines and medications may be harmful to your infant's health.]
Babies Sleep Better If They Are Drugged And Vaccinated In The Afternoon

Babies are now being drugged with powerful medications to reduce potential pain and fever before being vaccinated with multiple vaccinations. This is said to aid sleep which according to experts maximizes the vaccines response.
Linda Franck and her colleagues at the University of California, San Francisco (1) discovered that by drugging and vaccinating 8 week old babies with multiple vaccinations in the afternoon helps them to sleep better. Linda Franck the leading author of the study which was carried out at the university said:
“Sleep is important after getting shots, because sleep is a sign of a vaccine response, and it’s important to maximize that response.”
Originally the researchers were not studying vaccinations they were studying whether babies slept better if they were given the medication Tylenol before vaccinations or not at all. Apparently it is standard practice to give babies a dose of the drug acetaminophen brand name Tylenol before vaccinations to reduce any increase in temperature supposedly making them more comfortable.
According to the original report published in the journal of Pediatrics (2) 25 of the 70 babies being studied were given a dose of Tylenol before the vaccinations. However, due to fever or discomfort many of the remaining babies in the study were also given the medication either at the time of vaccination or afterwards.
All of the babies were vaccinated with the following vaccinations pneumococcal, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DPT), Haemophilus influenzae type b, poliovirus and hepatitis B vaccines.
It is hardly surprising that these poor 8 week old babies slept for so long in what is in my opinion an appalling and abusive study. Not only were they vaccinated with no less than 7 doses of vaccines containing all the chemicals, toxins and viruses known to man but they were also drugged during their ordeal. This study is another example how the pharmaceutical companies use innocent children as guinea pigs in sick and perverse medical experiments.
Putting the vaccines aside for one moment, Tylenol can have deadly side effects and has not been adequately tested in children. According to SideEffects.com (3) in 2007 the FDA’s own scientific consultants advised the FDA to recommend that children under the age of 6 years should not receive this drug. Sadly the FDA chose to ignore their advice.
Despite Tylenol’s seemingly ‘safe’ impression, it has NOT been tested with the randomized double-blind placebo-controlled studies, known as RCT’s, that doctors and scientists SAY they require in order to determine if something is safe. If Tylenol were brought onto the market as a new drug right now, researchers would say that there is just not evidence to declare its safety for use in children.
Yet, we take it for granted that we are doing the best thing for our children by giving them Tylenol when they have a fever or are in pain. But children HAVE died of liver failure, or been put on the transplant list, from ‘recommended’ dosages of Tylenol. And in fact, the FDA’s scientific consultants recommended, in 2007, that the FDA recommend that children under 6 years old NOT receive Tylenol- the FDA chose to ignore their scientific consultants in this matter.
