New survey reveals insights into unique relationship between mothers and pediatricians

who interview pediatricians were more likely to report that they were extremely satisfied with their pediatrician.

The survey also showed that most moms claim that the shots hurt them more than their child (75 percent) and nearly half (49 percent) feel guilty about the number of shots their baby receives. Nearly three-quarters of moms (71 percent) would like to reduce the number of shots children receive, however, 79 percent of moms (surveyed) have not had discussions with their pediatrician about options to reduce the number of shots.
