Has anyone here just not chosen a pedi, for this child or a previous one? I'm thinking we'll just let the hospital pedi do the initial exam for discharge, and let that be that. We don't vaccinate, and I manage our health care through herbal and homeopathic methods at home. Well baby visits would be completely useless to us. Plus, I'll be losing my insurance shortly after giving birth, so we wouldn't be able to afford to keep going to a pedi, anyway. There's an ER right down the road if we have a real emergency, but I feel pretty confident that I can handle our routine care just fine, as I've been doing it for years with my son. The only concern for me is the CPS thing - if we skip the pedi because I just don't believe in it (and I truly don't), can we get in trouble for that? I mean, the Amish don't do well baby visits, do they?
