The hard part is done. The final hours of labor are over and it's time to bring the sweet little bundle of joy home. You've put your heart and soul into the nursery, making sure every last detail has been taken care of. The only thing you forgot was to select your child's pediatrician. Don't worry, help is on the way.

Finding a quality pediatrician is hard. Unless the doctor is your sibling or best friend, you're never really sure if you can trust them with the life of your own child. The remedy is to talk to other parents. Most parents have tried out several pediatricians before settling on one. Get some good suggestions and make a list.

Now it's research time. Does the doctor share the same values as you? Will this doctor accept my health insurance plan? Are you more for strict medical remedies, or do you want someone who implements homeopathic solutions as well? Does the doctor share his/her office? If so, do the others share the same values? When your pediatrician is out, chances are you will be left seeing the other doctors and knowing how they work is vital.

If you've been around kids, you know they do not work on a 9-5 time clock. Finding a pediatrician who genuinely understands this can be a heaven send. Does your physician have an on call doctor or answering service? Is it a nightmare to try and get someone on the phone? Most doctors' recognize the need for an afterhour's service and have one readily available for you and your little one.

What about during the office hours when a quick question arises. Do I need to bring my child in? How much Tylenol can I truly give them? Is your pediatrician equipped with nurse's who can answer those time-sensitive questions?

Ultimately, finding a pediatrician does take a little bit of time and research. Don't wait until your baby arrives. Spend those valuable 9 months finding just the right pediatrician who will not only work to heal your child when they are sick, but also work proactively to make sure your child stays well.
