My son was hitting all his milestones.  He was such an easy going, happy baby.  He loved to talk, sing, and dance.  All this changed after his 12 and 18 month shots.  At his 12 month well visit, he received 8 vaccines and later that day became very ill which resulted in the loss of the following:  speech, ability to wave, eat with fork/spoon.  He no longer looked at me and just stared into space.  He started bashing his head up against anything he could find.  It got even worse after he received his MMR shot at his 18 month visit and he has never been the same.  He is now 5 years old and was diagnosed with Autism at age 2.  He is nonverbal, has severe stomach and sensory issues.  His immune system is just awful.  I wish I had done more research before his vaccines.  I wish someone would have told me what could and can happen.
