I have a great pediatrician in the area, not Montclair but in Millburn, 90 Millburn Ave, 20-25 min away from my home in East Orange. It's a large practice but I like the two main doctors- Dr. Larry Gruenwald and Dr. Jacquelyn Detweiler. My girlfriend recommended them after having her twins and I looked them up. I got good responses.Check them out. My daughters 4 months old and on our first visit i had questions for the doctor he answered and also gave a questionaire booklet that had some very useful information in it.

We just went through this search upon recently moving to Montclair. This Dr's office came very much recommended by my friend who has 2 kids, and I've seen them noted in other Montclair blogs:
Park Ave Pediatrics, 36 Park Ave & Bloomfield Ave, Verona ###-###-####
We were actually just there today for shots, which weren't fun, but were quick and the doctor encouranged me to distract my son with lots of kisses.
Congrats on your pregnancy!

When I moved to Bloomfield, a good friend recommended Tenafly Pediatrics, which has an office in Clifton. She goes there with her 3 yo and 8 mo. I decided to stay with my pediatricians in Hoboken because I LOVE them, but I trust my friend's opinion, so I'm sure they're good.
