Dh and I are relocating to the Bristol, CT area at the beginning of April- moving from RI. We are searching for a no-vax friendly pediatrician or family physician, dentist for all of us and like-minded families to meet! DS will be 4 next month and DD is 6 months old. We plan to homeschool, as well. Anyone have info that can help us?

Hi and welcome to CT! Are you familiar with the area at all? I wish I could give you better specifics, but you will likely be able to find the kind of ped you are looking for in the West Hartford area, which will not be too far for you.
There's lots to do for littles here! CT Science Center, Dinosaur State Park, Lutz Museum, West Hartford parks, KidCity....lots of fun stuff :)
I'm not sure if this helps, but this is the practice we use for Occupational Therapy. One of the providers in the practice is a naturopath physician. We don't see her ourselves, but I have heard good feedback from other patients.
Also, a great resource for parent/kid activities in central CT is Out and About Mom. http://www.outandaboutmom.com/
They have a website and a great FB page.
You might try to find a MOMS International Club in Bristol or nearby. That's the first thing I joined when I moved back to CT and it has been a great resource.
There's a ped in Canton (Canton Pediatrics maybe?) who's vax friendly as far as selective/delayed and they do have a doc they work with who is ok with non-vax as well. Bit of a drive so depends how badly you want a pediatrician who's ok with non-vax, otherwise maybe an ND would be a better option. Lots of them all over CT, we use Dr Gruber at Kidspace in S Windsor, another drive, but great place. We're dentist searching ourselves at the moment!
