Does such a person exist? I am looking more specifically in the Tupelo or Oxford area, but will travel for someone who is open to non or delaying vax and knowledgeable about intact foreskin and is encouraging about bf.

I took my ds to his 2 week check up with someone I felt really comfortable with in the medical profession up until now. But he tried to retract his foreskin only stopped by my slapping his hand and screaming no! And then proceeds to tell me that the dhs can take away kids who don't get vaxed (wrong!), and that my breastmilk won't satisfy a growing boy and will need supplemeting with cereal and formula in a few months (wrong!)
Needless to say we will NOT be returning
Ok...rant over...

Any recs?
