Kids seem more comfortable around females so i would probably recommend a female. But my sons is a male and he is AWESOME (he saved my sons life when every other doctor told me he was fine) but even with that said my son still gets a little nervousaround him.
I had a male ped with my son and loved him! My son was born in nc and had that dr for a few months and never had a problem with him. Now since we moved back to our home state I take my son to a family dr who is also a male. My son doesn't have any issues with him but he doesn't like the nurses (maybe bc he knows they give him the shots lol) but his dr has a daughter a fews months older than my son so I can really ask him questions and he has good advice since he is going through a lot of the same stages with his girl. You can always try one first and you will find out very quick whether or not that's the dr for you and your baby :)
