I'm looking for a pro-breastfeeding pediatric dentist in Chicago, someone who has great rapport with kids and isn't going to tell me to nightwean my 13 month old. Can anyone recommend one?

My son goes to Dr. Adrian at ACdentistry. He made the experience so positive and fun for my son- my son was laughing in the dental chair!! I can't say enough good things about him and he is very familar with and supportive of extended breastfeeding.

We use McElroy Pediatric Dental in Bloomingdale. They had no issues with our DS night nursing at age 2. However because had multiple cavities in spite of frequent good brushing, they did suggest that after he nursed at night I try to get him to rinse his mouth with water and/or get some xylitol gel in there if I can.

Thanks! These are really helpful recommendations. We are located on the north side, so Evanston/Skokie/Wilmette recommendations are welcome, too.
