New survey reveals insights into unique relationship between mothers and pediatricians

mising the protection against serious childhood diseases. Today's complicated immunization schedule calls for as many as six shots per visit--which can be traumatic for both moms and babies. I encourage moms to ask pediatricians about options to reduce that number."

Close behind immunization, physical development was the number two topic discussed during well-baby visits (92 percent) with dietary guidelines (75 percent) in third place. Other important topics included cognitive development updates (74 percent), behavioral development updates (72 percent), general parenting advice (63 percent), social interaction norms (62 percent) and sleeping recommendations (45 percent). Interestingly, about a third (33 percent) of moms even consult their baby's pediatrician for their own health concerns.

"Well-baby visits can be overwhelming for a new mom there is a lot of information to digest. We were encouraged to see that many moms are searching the Internet for additional information on topics they may have discussed with their pediatricians the survey found that nearly two-thirds of mothers sought more information online regarding recommendations the doctor made," added Kellie Gould.

Power of Two: Mothers and Pediatricians Working Together

To help moms form and maintain a successful relationship with their pediatrician, Dr. Trachtenberg in partnership with iVillage.com developed an educational brochure for parents. The brochure, which includes helpful information on how to select a pediatrician and prepare for well baby visits, is available online free of charge at www.ivillage.com/PowerofTwo.
