Kailyn Lowry Says She Won’t Vaccinate Sons Isaac and Lincoln
Time for another Teen Mom 2 controversy, this time brought to you by nature-loving goddess, Kailyn Lowry. This gorgeous reality star is known for making a few unorthodox decisions throughout her pregnancy (remember the time she ate her placenta? Yum!), and her latest parenting decision is definitely unusual.
Despite the fact that most doctors recommend the opposite, Kailyn and her husband, Javi Marroquin, have decided not to vaccinate their children! "We aren't vaccinating," Kailyn wrote recently, adding that Isaac and Lincoln will still be able to attend school (they just have to "fill out a specific form").
It's hard to know why Kailyn's chosen not to vaccinate her kids, as there are so many possible reasons that could have swayed her. Maybe she wants them to build up immunity on their own when it comes to relatively simple viruses like the flu? She may also be concerned about possible side effects to vaccines (though most of the time the benefits tend to outweigh the risks). Additionally, she could want to treat her kids with alternative medicine, like homeopathy or Chinese herbs! Either way, it's an unusual decision, but one Kailyn has every right to make!
Are you surprised that Kailyn isn't vaccinating her children? Sound off in the comments and tell us how you feel about her alternative parenting decision!
