I have recently given birth to my second child and I am just not sure that I trust advice that I get from the ped's all the time...
My son is almost 18lbs at 4 1/2 months (big boy) and my pediatrician tells me that I shouldn't give him any kind of baby food until he is atleast 6 months old, and he does not sleep through the night.
Then she preceds to tell me that they don't recommend that I give my baby any Tylenol or motrin while he is teething. That I should just let him chew on a plastic teething ring!!!!!
Last but not least, every time my son has gotten his immunization shots his legs break out with hives around the area the shot was given. The rash lasted for almost two weeks, and when I asked the pediatrician about it she told me my baby was allergic to the band-aids that where put on his leg????? That just doesn't sound right.
I am just not sure if I have a good pediatrician or not? what advice can you give me on this topic?
