Feedback on Pediatricians - Either Dr. Lauren Crosby or Dr. Peter Waldstein?

Hi friends, I am trying to choose a pediatrician and I am due on Monday. We met with both Dr. Waldstein and Dr. Crosby (based on recommendations from our docs and others). Does anyone have any first-hand experience to share on either doctor to help maybe steer us in the right direction? Thanks in advance and best wishes, J.

Can You Recommend a Dentist Anywhere?

Hi All, I was wondering if anyone can recommend a dentist. Either a pediatric dentist or a family dentist and I don't care where the person is located. I just need some recommendations. We are due for our 6 month check ups and I have yet to find a dentist since moving out here. We do live in the North Hills area, but please feel free to suggest a dentist anywhere! Really, it's only twice a year that we go (so far!). Thanks so much in advance!

Four Year Old Driving Me Insane

I have a four year and a half year old girl who can be the best kid or a huge challenge. Her newest thing is screaming "Why are you being so mean to me?" anytime anyone says anything she doesn't want to hear. For instance--just now-- Lauren: I can't find my shoes. I CAN'T FIND MY SHOES! Me: I just put them in your room. Lauren: I don't see them. They are not there. (Getting more and more upset) THEY ARE NOT THERE! YOU NEED TO HELP ME FIND THEM! Me: (from the toilet!) You sound really frustrated about it. (Obviously not...

Seeking Good OB GYN and Pediatrician near SW Portland

I will be moving to the Cedar Hills area of NW Portland in about a month, and I am terrified of not finding a good OB GYN for me and Pediatrician for my 3-year-old. I had gestational diabetes with my daughter, Audrey, and she also had a spontaneous brain bleed at birth that required her to be life-flighted and hospitalized in Infant ICU for several weeks. She is healthy and strong now, and this pregnancy (I am 23 weeks) is normal so far. Still, considering my past complications, I want to find a doctor who is not only kind and...

5 Year Old Daughter Still Having Potty Accidents...

Hello, My daughter is 5-1/2 years old and still having blatant accidents. I am at my wits end, and I'm not sure what to do. She went through a period after potty training at 2 where she had dry pants and even dry pants at night. Now, we are back to pull-ups at night and at least one accident a day. She will even stand by the bathroom or run by a bathroom several times and not stop to potty. When you ask her if she has to go, she always says no, but will end up having an accident minutes later. There has been no major trauma...

Completely Defiant 3 Year Old

My daughter is not quite 3 1/2. She is generally a sweet natured, loving child, but she is what I will call willful. She has been able to speak in full sentences since she was 1 1/2 and has used every opportunity to boss others around and generally make her will known to the world. She bosses around her cousins who are 5-9 years older than her, her fellow classmates at daycare and anyone else who will listen. Because she is an only child and because I don't want to stifle her, I say yes whenever possible, but I insist that I am the...
