So, the HV came with her scales...


I've been dreading the HV coming as I had heard so many bad things but she seemed alright the only slightly odd thing was that she weighed J (who hadn't fed much for couple of days the previous week due to a virus) and found that J was spot on. However the HV wants to keep an eye on her and has asked me to go in to have her weighed in a fortnight? It was kind of like saying "this baby is a little too perfect, I don't trust you!" which upset me a little as other than this she seemed to know her onions?

She also really drilled it in that I shouldn't be eating low fat stuff and to not worry about weight loss which whilst it is in the back of my mind (naturally) it's not a priority right now. Just not too sure what to think? Why does she need to keep an eye on her? She won't think I'm a bad mum will she? I don't get everything right but I try hard and love my little girl alot!xx

I personally never got my babies weighed that often and there is no obligation to do so. Even my son who had the allergies/malabsorption problem only got weighed once a month or so; and this was advised by the health visitor and paediatricians at the hospital. While its not all HVs, you do get some who are quite 'controlling' and who make a big deal of your baby's weight gain,either 'too much' or 'too little' and make you come back every fortnight for eons; if your LO is spot on with their weight and has been ok with their weight gain in the past I don't see why fortnightly weighings would be necessary.

My hv still goes on about wanting to weight my 22 months old! she pisses me off. I dont mind her doing my son at the start but he looks ok, eats fine and its because he is bf and she has no bf chart she thinks william is underweight. I wont worry any more about weight , i will if theres rapid loose , no wet or dirty nappies other wise I ignore,. Sometimes i think docs and hv make you shit yourself for nothing! I cant tell you how many times they had me in worry and there was nothing to worry about.

I do wonder if maybe they're just bored and want more people at the clinic? Lol, who knows! I do however would rather not risk life and limb over the ice just to have an unnecessary checkup. I was told to go once a month a few weeks back which to be honest I probably wouldn't stick to xx
