    We got a letter yesterday from the health visitor saying she is going to visit for Holly's 2 year check next week.

    Did anyone else's LO have one?

    NONE of my friends have had one for their LO and its got me a bit worried.
    :wacko:

    my friend who's LO has just turned two is having one soon...i've not heard anything about whether isabel will have one :shrug: if isabel doesn't then i do suspect my friends LO may be having one as is flagged on health records due to being 5 weeks premature, but who knows! :shrug:

    I think it depends on where you live. I asked my HV if my LO's would be having a 2year check, but no :nope:

    My son is not that age yet but I can say that he had one at around 6 months (if my memory is correct) and he is having his year check next month. I was panicked as to why he had to have it, yet no one I knew (even in the next town over) was having one but it turns out that it just depends where you live as to when and how often you have them. I did get really worried though with the first letter and it was basically weighing him, asking a few questions about what he could and could not do development wise and she gave us a bag with a toothbrush and books in so I was worrying over nothing. The place I live has them more often than a lot of places though and you are quite close in area I bet (I live between Nottingham and Derby).
