Hi everyone! I am a new mother to a 6 month old baby girl. Things have been quite rocky for a while (she got an ear infection, I got the flu, and god knows what else) and I was wondering if anyone had any resources they turn to when it comes to your baby's health? Any feedback would be great! Thanks :) Sara

I found that my doctor was amazing, we interviewed pediatricians to find him and whenever we were concerned that there was something wrong he always squeezed us in.

Sara,

For the first 2 years, my godsend was the nurse line at the hospital. The one they give you as a "questions" line...boy, they had to have heard from me at least once a week for awhile!

And, my gran who had been a pediatric nurse was a great resource to me. But, she was more for the old fashioned remedies, etc.

A good pediatrician or nurse practitioner that is patient and will answer your questions without making you feel stupid is also a must!

Congrats on your baby girl, and welcome to being a mom!
