Howdy neighbor! You'll live about 10-15 minutes from me when you move! I live in Algonquin!
I just typed a long reply to your thread and it was lost for some reason, telling me I was not logged in when I was... ugh. Anyhow...
I mentioned you should check out:www.homefirst.com
I am about to check them out myself, as I am about to TTC #2 and don't want the kind of birthing experience I had with DD4. My best friend uses them and loves them. They're about 30 minutes away, but I think I'll suck it up and deal with the driving.
As for peditricians... I did a delayed vax scheule with DD and then switched her to a different doctor when DD was a little over a year old because I got sick of being treated the way I was treated. The doctor I take her to now was okay with me refusing the CP vax. In fact, I took DD to her second pox party yesterday. Last year we had a failed attempt, so I'm hoping for spots in a week or two! Our current doc also didn't bat an eye when DD was still nursing at 30 months... She's quite nice, DD loves her, and she is actually located in a brand new state of the art facility in Huntley... but I'm not sure how she'd respond to no vaxing at all. I should ask, before having #2, huh?
Please feel free to email me if I can answer any more questions about the area for you or if you're just feeling chatty! [email protected]
