When it came to finding a baby doc for her brood, Kourtney Kardashian didn't need to look far. "My kids' pediatrician was mine growing up," she says. Still, here are three traits she believes make for a great doctor.


"My kids' doctor will quickly answer any email, even if it's 11:00 at night," Kardashian says. "That's important to me."


"I need somebody who doesn't get offended if I offer a different suggestion," Kardashian says. "He'll talk it through with me."

A Good Listener

"It's important to have someone who'll listen to your concerns," Kardashian says. You're spending the most time with your children, so you're the first to notice a change."
