I tell her almost everything, why would I lie? She doesn't have to agree with me (in fact she doesn't agree with much of what we do) but it isn't her choice. She wanted us to introduce solids at 4 months, I said no. What is she going to do, follow me home and force feed him rice cereal
She is strongly pro-vax, we don't vax at all and she doesn't get why but who cares. She simply wrote "not vaccinated" on the front of his chart and it has never been discussed since that first time. She never understood the cosleeping or the extended nursing as I am now officially the longest breastfeeder she has had for a patient. I figure I am paving the way for the next mama.
The only thing she doesn't know is that I am pregnant (she is my doc too) but as I am not seeing her for prenatal care it really has nothing to do with her (although if she asked I would have told her we are planning a UC homebirth). Doctors are just people, and they don't have nearly as much invested in the health and well being of my family as I do, therfore their opinion is not nearly as important as mine when it comes to these issues. Plus, dishonesty implies there is something wrong with what I am doing and I don't believe that for a second
