How many of you when you take your child to the ped whether they're sick or not sit in the waiting room to wait for the dr? I realize this may sound like a strange ? but I NEVER wait in the waiting room, I always ask if there is a room available for us to go directly into, in fact my ped was the one who recommended this. @ my dr's office there's the typical 2 sides for the sick/well kids but after watching the sick kids wander into the well side & sneeze & cough all over the toys while mom sits there not saying anything I decided to continue taking dd, 8 mo directly in. No this doesn't mean I get seen faster, it just means that while we wait dd's not being coughed on by 17 different kids. Once she's older & in school I don't think it will matter as much (I'm a SAHM so no daycare for her yet). How many other moms ask to go directly into the room? Now that I've brought it up how many of you plan on doing so?

I don't bother doing that. When our kids are in school, they are inviting all kinds of bacteria & virus's into their system DAILY just by being in a place w/ hundreds of kids, many sick ones, as soon as they place their hands on the door knobs to enter the school. You cannot hide your kids from virus's. So, i don't bother trying. She washes her hands constantly, uses germ-x & takes very good care of herself. Besides that, I am not going to put her in a room where i would like to believe has no virus's & bacteria in there, but truth be told.....there was probably a sick kid in there 1/2 hour before you entered the room. You cannot hide your children from germs, it's nearly impossible. All you can do is help them learn & practice good hygiene.
