Dr. Who? Part 2

Just as it is important to identify a gynac before your delivery , it is equally important to identify the paediatrician . After all it is the paediatrician who first sees your baby and checks out that everything is all right.

With babies beginning immunisation programs within the first week of their birth and with children remaining children till they turn 15, you are going to have a long term relationship with him.

Ensure that the paediatrician is someone whom you can relate to,is close at hand and willing to answer your very question .

Since mothers these days depend a lot on their own mothers to bring up children, you must ensure that the paediatrician knows who the granny is.

Consider this story sent by my friend Dee:

A woman and a baby were in the doctor‘s examining room, Waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby’s first exam. The doctor arrived, and examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed.
“Breast-fed,” she replied.
“Well, strip down to your waist,” the doctor ordered.
She did. He pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in a very professional and a detailed examination.
Motioning to her to get dressed, the doctor said,
“No wonder this baby is underweight. You don’t have any milk.”
“I know,” she said, “I’m his Grandma, but I sure am glad I came.”
