How many of you take your children to the same Peditrician you went to??

I love the fact that my kids get to go to the same Pediatrician I went to. She is always telling my kids stories about me! I just think it's so neat! Anyone else?

  • my pediatrician retired a few years before i had my son which i was upset about, but we took him to the same office for the first 5 or 6 months after he was born, and then we started having problems with the girls at the front desk.. alot of problems .. so we switched.

  • My oldest daughter did for about a year. She told me to stop breastfeeding at 9 months cold turkey. We had completely different views on what I should do with her. The last straw was when one of the nurses left her chart in the room and I looked at it and written off to the side was STILL BREASTFEEDING!!!!! It was underlined multiple times. I just thought it was so rude. I switched her to the pedi my youngest dd was using and we're still using her. She's awesome.

  • Our daughter's pediatrician was mine and DHs lol. It's a REALLY small community and I think there are only like 5 peds within a 35 mile radius of where we live now.
