We moved a while back and had to find a new ped- well, unexpectedly my DD started having seizures and the on-call ped ended up being our ped. She told me at our first official visit with her that when the on-call dr told her I was still nursing DD (about 18 months at the time), she was so relieved b/c she knew there was no concerns about hydration or nutrients.
That is a pediatrician to keep!
