Kelli, I am actually back with Pedios. But let me say this -- I don't tell my peds anything about my parenting practice and any advice they give me about parenting I ignore. That being said, Pedios is supportive of breastfeeding -- not sure for how long. I don't talk about co-sleeping, I just feel like it isn't the doc's business. Also, I do most of the vaxes I delay on some and haven't had an issue with them.
I initially left b/c there is one doc there I really dislike. She gave parenting advice that I could not ignore.
Alot of people really like Uchitelle and Locke, I really liked Uchitelle in the few appts I had with her. The reason I left was b/c of an issue that occurred right after my homebirth. I think she is good for alot of people and seemed like a strong doc -- but due to this encounter I could not go back.
I have heard good things about Mercola but his is merely tolerant of delayed or no vaxing.
Also, not sure if this was mentioned in that thread someone in the West Cook County Attachmetn Parenting group posted about this group of docs and really likes them: Dr. Kyle on North ave
