We need to switch practices for the kids asap.

 

Short version:

 

My older daughter started falling off the growth chart for weight around 6 months. Perfectly healthy active baby, just thin. We ended up switching to this practice because of issues with previous doctor. I now have a almost-6 year old who has the "family build" (tall and thin).

 

My little one at 7 months is now following the same growth curve as her sister, and again it starts that there's a problem with her falling off the chart for weight. Little one is of course exclusively breastfed (and not yet showing signs of solids readiness, same as her sister at same age). Among other things, this is an issue for the current doc, and after all the problems last time, I'm not comfortable doing this again.

 

What we need is a natural-minded practice with someone more breastfeeding-friendly. We don't vaccinate, either. Any recs would be appreciated.

Dr. Rachel Fabbi in Geneva, IL might fit the bill and is a fabulous doctor. She's chiropractic internist which means she offers a full scope of holistic care, including well baby care. Check her out:

Chad Olsen in Naperville or Jennifer Schening in S. Elgin are both awesome. Overcash at Dryer is also good, but her partners are not. Same for Rucoba in Wheaton, he's great, his partners not so great.
