Hi all! I was wondering if anyone could direct me to what I can only describe as a more AP-minded pedi.

After one too many comments and/or things happening at our current pedi, we're looking to switch. I'm specifically looking for a pediatrician (as well as their nurses) that know how to care for a *gasp* intact penis. If I didn't feel like need to lie about bed sharing, that would be cool too. Someone encouraging of extended breastfeeding would be great too, but with my supply issues I'm not even sure that it'll be an option.

But anyway, if anyone has a pedi that they just love please share with me! I'm located in Middleboro so if possible I'd like to stay in the area, but I'd drive 30 minutes or so if it was worth it.

Thanks so much!

Hi! We go to Dr. Walcott at Pediatric Healthcare. It is in Brockton, but it is right off 24, so not a bad ride from Middleboro. We drive up from New Bedford to see her. We cosleep, delay vax, and don't circ. I breastfed my 3yr old until he was 2 1/2 and am now pumping for/breastfeeding(long NICU stay) my youngest. She has been very supportive and is very knowledgeable. We love her!

We see Dr. Sarah Shreter in Swansea she is totally cool about whatever you want to do with vaccines and is holistic...her husband is a chiro.

THere is also Dr. Arlene Dijamco in COhasset, I have seen her present at a Holistic Moms of Plymouth meeting so she seems pretty AP.

Good luck!
