We haven't seen any of the docs at family practice at NHCL, but I asked the CNM who used to do homebirths for a recommendation & she said Kewish, but I'm not sure if he's a ped or at family practice.
DD1 goes to a pediatric clinic out in town, & I haven't had any trouble with her PCM over vaxes. He is the neonatologist.
DD2 goes to a family practice next door to DD1's clinic, and he was fine on the vaxes also. He also didn't bat an eyelash about the homebirth or that she was finally seeing a dr for the first time at 2.5 months. His kids are homeschooled (it came up in relation to the vax thing) & he sounds way
That isn't to say that both think no vax is a good idea. They both think the Hep B vax is crazy for a newborn, and that chicken pox is pretty non threatening if you get it as a child, but it's harder to find now & poses more risks if an adult contracts the disease. But they were both respectful of my decision not to give my girls even the vaxes that they thought were more necessary.
I have yet to find a dr who is anywhere near as supportive of breastfeeding as yours sounds, Marilyn! Please PM me her info!!! We need the tolerance for small children, also.
There is no way Tricare could mess w/your decisions on vaxing.
