Well, it went a little better and a lot worse than I expected. No fighting on the vax issue, he just nicely told us that he can't be our doctor because of the other doctors he is in practice with, but that if he were in solo practice, he would be happy to stay our doctor. But during the visit I decided that if he wasn't gonna boot us, I was going to leave. He called Evan overweight 3 times!!!! He even said, "What do you plan to do about that?" Me: "Uhhh, keep breastfeeding him." And told me that after 6 months, babies HAD to have solids. I told him that we had tried to give him some a couple of times and he wasn't raelly interested so I was going to try every couple of weeks until he did seem interested, and he basically told me to force the food on him. He also told me that I needed to night-wean him and that the reason he is so fat is because I nurse him on demand, which is every 3-4 hours at night. GRRRRRR!!!!! At least he said he would see him if we needed to before we got in with the new doc.
So anyways, we have an appointment with a new ped, but not until his 9 month check in July. I got the doc as a recommendation from some moms here on MDC and on an AP yahoogroup, so we shouldn't have much of a problem. Just wanted to fill ya'll in!
ETA: He was 21#9oz and 28 inches long with a 17 3/4 inch head circ. (Birth stats: 9#5, 21 1/2 inches long, 14 1/2 inch head circ) And I was a huge baby but thinned out nicely as a child
