Re: OH LORDY....long rant...

So sorry you had a rough time at the pedi's office. You definately need to shop around for a new one. We went to the pedi today too and my 9 mo old weighed 15.8lbs. She doesn't like to eat very much yet. He just said to try and feed her and then nurse her afterwards. She is content with bf. I like our doc but some of the stuff he tells me goes in one ear and out the other. He doesn't approve of cosleeping but he knows we do it. We don't vax on schedule but he doesn't complain about it too much. If he ever ticked me off by trying to force his medical beliefs or opinions on me I would leave.

I am so sorry mama.....its to be expected. I avoid the ped office unless we are really sick. Can you locate some other non vaxing mamas in your area to see what ped they go to?

I am sorry Mama. Have you checked out MDC to see if there is an AP friendly Ped in your area? Perhaps someone over there knows.

Don't let him make you feel bad about your choices! He would not be the one carrying for your kids if they had been harmed by a vax or their immunity was down from not being BF.

Re: OH LORDY....long rant...

you have more tact than me. I would have shut the secretary down right up front...

she: oh your on the schedule to see Dr. "C" bc Dr. "W" is on vaca.."

me: oh, well it's a shame that no one told me that you were going to schedule me with a different doctor. I don't want to see Dr. C so I'll need to reschedule when Dr. W is available.

rinse, dry, repeat.
