Within this first year of parenthood, we have already visited the pediatrician seven times.
Our pediatrician is wonderful – everything we could hope for in a doctor who will be with us for a solid decade or two (at least). At every visit so far she has asked us about our daughter's eating habits, and pooping habits; she even asks about firearms in the house and about how our marriage is doing.
These are all very important topics. But our pediatrician has consistently missed raising one subject that’s equally as important -- Not once has she asked where our daughter sleeps and whether we share our bed with her.FULL ENTRY
