  • their views on: medicine (is your child gonna get a prescip for everything or are they against medication, sometimes kids really do need the meds), how many doc are in the practice, if there are alot your child may not see the same doc every time, but if hes the only doc there than if he goes on vacay your child will see a stranger. if there is an on call number you can call for questions after hours to speak with a nurse. ummm im not sure what else, my husband is navy and you get what they give you unless there is a problem with your provider so i never had an option to look around

  • Kudos for keeping your baby!!!
    You can ask about your diet, what foods are good, what foods to avoid. You can ask about what meds OTC you can take (Tylenol, Benedryl) in case you get sick. Ask about how much weight they expect you to gain. Just general questions. You will be fine, just try not to stress and get some Parents magazines to read, they are interesting and may help too.
