I'm 33 weeks pregnant with my first child and am looking for a pediatrician. I'd love someone who is educated about breastfeeding, at least enough to defer to a lactation consultant for problems.

Also, my husband and I will be vaccinating, but would like to do so at our own pace, so we want a practitioner who'd be willing to hear us out.

We're in Cleveland Heights, moving to the west side soon, but location isn't too big an issue as long as it's not too far out from the city proper.

I can't recommend Dr. Lavin at Advanced Pediatrics enough. We are not vaxing at all and he is not the type to pressure. Also he doesn't accept pharaceutical company freebies so there aren't posters and pens everywhere for the latest drug. He's in Beachwood - I drive from Cuyahoga Falls and it is worth it.
