  • I already had an OB, and I knew way ahead of time what Ped I wanted, but as far as actually going around and doing interviews and making a decision, I would recommend starting when your around 6 months.. you want to make sure you find a good doctor that you can trust!

  • I made the mistake of doing it after she was born and was stuck with the a*hole at the hosp. Next time, I'll use my current ped. I recommend you pick one out at least a month before (incase you have the baby early like I did. I had a few names picked out, but never called)

  • I knew who I was going to use as soon as I became pregnant, my kids went to the same pediatrician I did when I was a kid, I loved the fact that I could call him at home if I was worried about anything.
