We live in southern NH but have MA insurance. The pedi we currently see is in NH but I'm definitely willing to drive to MA (it's only 5 miles to the border) for a pedi. The current pedi has just recommended supplementing with formula and since she did the same with my first son, I'm starting to think it's time to switch.

Can anyone recommend one? Thank you!

I love our pedi in Harvard, MA. She's the chair of pediatrics at Emerson Hosp. (Concord, MA) & she's been great with the breastfeeding. She's part of Harvard Vanguard/ Concord Hillside Medial Associates, but she only sees patients in Harvard. I have no issue getting my calls answered, or a same-day appt. for urgent care. Dr. Jankelson.

I use Audrey Tracey in Leominster. She is cool with extended nursing,cloth dipe,delayed solids,delayed/select vax. She also has a NP rebekaha that i love! Most of the other staff I could do without. does call back sooner than later. I have always gotten in on the day I called.

Doing what I can to make better choices every day!

Partners in Pediatrics in Nashua, NH is WONDERFUL. Caring group of pro-breastfeeding women doctors. We had to leave after our insurance changed, but would still be there otherwise.

I second the recommendation for Dr. Tracey. She's great with the kids and is very supportive. It is hard to see her lately, though. Her practice has grown a lot in the last 10 years or so. Dr. Susan Young who is in Dr. Tracey's office has also always given my family great care.

We tried Dr. Tracy when we moved here (about 18 months ago), and she wasn't taking patients. In fact we couldn't get an appointment with anyone who was recommended to us. If you find someone, let me know! We go to the Gardner Community Health Center, and they're good with my dc, but very pro vax. I dread the appts.
