Pediatrician question...

i was wondering if anyone else out there does NOT have a Pediatrician? We just take our kids to the family doctor. BUT i know when you give birth you have to tell them the name of your pediatrician--- so do i just tell them we use the family doctor?

thanks

We just use our family doctor, too. He still came to see the baby after he was born, and was the oneto release him from the hospital on our last day there. I think it depends on the doctor, but you could call your family doc and ask if they do newborn hospital visits, then you won't be surprised by some unknown ped coming in and talking to you about your babe

We had a family practitioner with DS and that's just what we told them. No questions at all.

Re: Pediatrician question...

We have a family dr... The ped on call came to talk to us and treated us like we knew nothing. He hated me... DD#3 had body temp issues in their mind and told me I couldn't take any meds after she was born. Went in at 4 in the AM to bring her back for her check and he yelled at me for taking the meds. I went off on him (yes at 4 am) telling him I had just woken up and to get the F over it even if I did take the meds. Ended up waking up every baby in the NICU. He discharged us 4 hours later.

Yep, we've always used family docs as well. I just had my baby girl 2 weeks ago and they listed our family doc as the baby doc and she came the next morning to check on her just like the regular peds would.
