me and joshua had our 8 week check up yesterday. i dont know why they get you to see a doctor, she was bloody useless. we had an appointment for 30mins and we wasnt in there for more than 10mins. she just asked if he was ok and i said yes. she took his nappy off to feel his hips and looked intp his eyes. that was about it. joshua was born with a hooded foreskin and they said to me at hospital that they would look at it at his 8 week check up. so i asked her to have a look,if i didnt say anything she wouldnt of looked. all i got was why what are you worried about. Urrmm- if it will cause him problems in the future and if it will go back to normal on its own. (those sort of questions) all i got from her was i dont know ill have to book you in for a hospital appointment. i hate doctors,they seem to be so useless. so now im waiting for a hospital appointment to come through. i will be p**ssed off i go all the way to the hospital for them to say it was pointless in going. why do they send you to the doctors for your 8 week check up when they dont have a clue. surly if they are doing your 8 week check up they should know something about babies.
