preferred pediatrics in Milford
Dr. Diana Lopusny of Preferred Pediatrics in Milford will do both delayed/selective and no vax.   Just make sure you understand CT's exemptions for schools.   www.preferredpediatricsofct.com   You would need to call the office to see if she takes your particular insurance. 
Your only vax exemption choices in CT are medical or religious.  That being said, it is easy enough to get a religious exemption without having to actually explain or prove your religious convictions.   What you will have to do, however, is let your pediatrician know that you will not be doing any more vaxes from here on out (due to your "religious" epiphany).  **please note that some pedi's will dump you at this point**  Then you simply ask the school for the religious...
It is rather age-appropriate for a 3-6 month old baby to want to look around and play with the nipple and be very distracted by nursing. Don't loose hope, there are some things you can try.  One is to nurse in a darkened location with no distractions (pull the curtains, close the door, etc). Hold your baby close and look in his eyes and talk to him while he nurses so that his attention is on you.    Some moms like to wear a nursing necklace (large, chunky beads) that the...
I've seen it.  Pretty pricey, though, for something both my girls just did naturally with their dolls.   Plus.. the thing has a very shallow latch, LOL!
 You can do it!! Yes you can!!  Remember to nurse the baby first.  Be forewarned, however, that you may still experience nipple soreness with the new baby in the first week or two simply because it is a different child that will need to learn to latch correctly and who is going to need lots of nursing time.  Be prepared to offer distractions or other options (mommy milk in a sippy cup? lots of snuggles but no nursing?) for the toddler for a brief window of time.   It...
Have you taken a pregnancy test? 
So sorry you are having do deal with this.  Have you discussed this with your primary care doctor?  You said you have tried everything under the sun.. does that include diet changes?  I know you said you are pregnant, but you will also need to be aware that The Pill can cause thrush issues (something to keep in mind for the future).   Be sure to include lots of PRObiotics, too.  Look for the kind that is kept in a refrigerator at your health food...
Can you find a lactation consulatant (an IBCLC) to help you?  You may need to have an complete assessment done to check for things such as posterior tongue tie that might be interfering with your baby's ability to get a good latch.  A good IBCLC should also help you find positions that will work with your body to prevent such pain for you.   Meanwhile, here is a website you may want to take a look at http://www.biologicalnurturing.com/ Also, remember to keep the...
That pediatrician is going completely against the American Academy of Pediatricians, the World Health Organization and the Healthy People 2020 Initiative recommendations to continue breastfeeding through one year or as is mutually desired by the mother and child.    http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/113/2/e81.full.pdf  This article by the AAP should give you some good ammunition to use... right before you fire your pediatrician.  Best wishes on finding a...
