    FWIW here in the US a Pedatrician is just a GP who only sees children. we take our kids to a great practice, that has 2 LCs on Staff - though there is one bone headed idiot - who told me bf babies can't have reflux... & he always tells new parents that they NEED to supplement w/formula...he is getting better, b/c he's giving less of that advice now that there are more physcians on staff that either have or are bfing... so he's learning...

    here's two links for finding an LC

    I would be finding a different ped as well and NOT bring up the topic of food. Be evasive and nod a lot. We don't generally go to the ped either, good place for the kid to pick up an illness as the pp said.
