Love My Ped

We took dd to her one year check up yesterday and they completely reinforced the reasons why we go there. It's a practice of four doctors but they usually try to get you in to the one you see most often but that wasn't possible this time so I was a little worried. We denied two of the shots, (chicken pox and hep a) and there was no arguement at all. They asked if we were planning on doing them and I told them we were for sure holding off on chicken pox as long as possible. We actually discussed the vaccine vs natural immunity and they were totally understanding! I know the MMR is coming up at the next visit so I asked about all the weird ingredients and the ped didn't know that that stuff was in there so she actually went and pulled the insert from the shot and researched it while we were there. I was completely amazed. She loved dd's cd's too. DD's iron was low at 9 mo and they wanted us to supplement but I said no so they checked again and her iron level was perfect! Oh, and they were fine with me bf'ing her while doing the finger prick. I know we all read ped horror stories so I just had to post about how wonderful ours was to us yesterday!
