Common Questions Parents Ask Pediatricians

When I was pregnant with my oldest, I had a million questions. I remember I would walk into my doctor’s office with a notepad pre-filled with questions for each of our visits and would walk out with at least 2 more follow-up questions or “action” items of information I wanted to research and learn more about on my own. This pretty much continued after my baby girl was born and as I transitioned from seeing my gynecologist to visiting her pediatrician.

In the early months of my baby girl’s life, I would also walk into her pediatrician’s office with a list of questions. Many of my questions revolved around the care of her skin, what to do if she got sick, and when she did get sick, what medicine and how much to give her. Reading over the 4 common questions parents ask pediatricians on the OTCSafety site, I see that my concerns as a new parent were certainly just that, common.

My husband and I occasionally purchase organic products and I’ll honestly say that one of the reasons we don’t do so more often is due to the cost. The cost of buying every single item our family needs in the organic version would make us go over our grocery budget, so we do what we […]
