There are plenty of clinics out there that will let you hold your baby or even feed them while giving shots. Especially with one so young. I've seen some of the ones that say lay them out and I agree it's a bad experience.

You are lucky to find an MD who lets you hold the baby during shots. I have not been lucky enough to find one but I love our ped and this is my only complaint. I am agaist antibiotics unless they are absolutely necessary so I have an almost 7 y/o who has been on antibiotics 4 x in his entire life and an almost 2 y/o that has been on them once and my littlest one has never been on any!!! So find what you want in a ped. This is ridicculous!!

I also like the mama that said to call the news. This would be a great way to get the word out about how awful you were treated.

Get a new doc ASAP and write a letter to this practice telling EXACTLY why you are leaving.

we always hold DD for shots (she has only had a few) & blood draws. I did not realize Dr wouldn't let you. it seems a bit cruel.

You need a new pedi that is on the same page you are...and whose employees are not ridiculously rude!

why wouldn't they let you hold her? I've always held DS when he gets his shots.

I would have flipped! Do not go back there! You are the only person who can speak for your child and as far as Im concerned a doctor who doesn't even know that a child has already gotten a vax and trys to give it again is NOT a good doctor.

That sounds awful! I have to wonder why a paci interferes with shots! And no one should be touching your child without your okay or threatening to "detain" you. I would definitely be looking elsewhere for medical care.

Re: Very upsetting pedi visit, rant sorry

Living in West Virginia, too, I know it can be really tough to find an understanding pedi. I was able to nurse my son for all the shots we chose to get. I'm so sorry that you had such a bad experience. It's frustrating when you don't agree with your pedi, but the way you were treated is just ridiculous. I would definitely look for someone else. Now.
