My oldest DS had a clogged tear duct until he was 7 weeks. At my PP check-up with my midwife she noticed that he didn't fully turn his head to one side and that happened to be the side that the duct was on. We found a chiropractor that worked on infants, took him in, and that was it for the closed duct.

We are a family of Jesus loving urban-nesters living the granola life in a not-so-crunchy city.  Our kids (DS 8, DS 7, DD 4) are home birthed and educated, and we just found out that a new Little will be added to our roost mid-April '14!

I'm w/you. We have a wonderful relationship w/our ped., and my dd just loves to talk to her. The only thing my dd ped. preached was to do was is most comfortable to me. She knew I bf for over a year, co-slept, the whole nine yards. Being a new mother, I sometimes liked the reassurance that I was doing ok, b/c the support really wasn't there from my family. They are very mainstream and just knew I was going to stop bfing after about two weeks. But I fooled them and was able to nurse for 18 months.
