“I never thought I would say this, but I have found a great benefit to having a child. I *love* going to the pediatrician's office. I never thought I would ever say this; to me the pediatrician's office was a house of dread with cold stethoscopes and lots & lots of needles. But the pediatrician's office changes into something incredibly new with a baby. 1) It's the place where you get this validation that no, you're not killing the child, plus the pediatrician has this magic bag with which anything that *could* be wrong with the child he can fix within 48 hours. He goes to bat for you, and then there's the lobby, a general schmorgasboard of other children that you can look at and go, "ohhh."

I never thought I'd say this, but the pediatrician's office? It's a good place.

Oh my.”

There are certain key points to having a good doctor's visit. One is the office. The other is the doctors and nurses themselves. My kids LOVE visiting the pediatrician, because they get nurses who love to hear how high they can count and how much they can jump, and exclaims at how tall they are, and they get a doctor who tickles them and lets them play with his instruments and explains what they do. I hope your child gets a similarly good experience. :)
