Kristin Cavallari Defends Anti-Vaccination Stance on Watch What Happens Live

03/19/2014 at 09:00 AM EDT

Kristin Cavallari doesn't believe in vaccinations – for her children, anyway.

The former reality starlet was considerably more restrained than Jenny McCarthy while defending her own anti-vaccination stance to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live Tuesday.

"I'm just a mom. I'm trying to make the best decision for my kid," she said. "There are very scary statistics out there regarding what is in vaccines … We feel like we're making the best decision for our kids."

Cohen's question was spurred by a Fox interview Thursday in which Cavallari admitted to not vaccinating her kids to a disbelieving Lisa Kennedy, who had jokingly mentioned Jenny McCarthy's decision not to vaccinate her children.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, no scientific study has found a link between vaccines and autism.

Cavallari is expecting her second son with husband Jay Cutler in May.
