Course you're not!
Like you ay you know they're happy and healthy just by looking at them. I only go to the weigh in as I'm too scared to go to any baby clubs, it's the only way she socialises with other bubs, otherwise I probably wouldn't bother. xx
No of course you're not a bad mum! i haven't took Jayden for ages i just go by how he is in his self, obvs if he was ill or something i'd take him to the docs of his jabs etc, other than that i know his wellbeing more than some daft HV! (i appreciate they aren't all like that, the ones we've seen are, ie told me my 6 week old should be going 12 hours at night w/o a feed) x
I'm exactly the same! The only reason I know everything about Connor is because I get him weighed every month, which I only do because I'm too scared of going to any groups!
You're not a bad mum. If your babies were unhealthy, they wouldn't be such happy cheeky little darlings (who I plan on kidnapping ) x
No of course not...we've never gone either! Well actually I went once when he was 1...but that was a 1 year check (not sure if they do them in england), apart from that...nothing, I go by the same theory as you! X
Gem, of course you're not a bad mom! Going to the doctors is everyone's personal decision, it's not mandatory! And don't forget, your LO's were born early so they should be doing what normal 9 month olds are doing! Don't worry hon, you're an amazing person and an amazing mom.
I have no HV. I don't go to the clinic. I don't know Shauns weight, height, percentile... I've got the same opinion as you, their happy, so I don't see a problem. So joining the 'bad mum' club xx
Thanks guys, I just got meself a bit frazzled, I think because I always compare them to each other, and they're similar in their development and size that I think its ok, and then I see other babies and I'm like... OMG MINE ARENT LIKE THAT!!
Why must we always compare eh?! I'm terrible for it haha!!
I'm the same, don't get Ava weighed, go to the HV or docs
Last time I went the HVs put a big sign on the door saying 'babies only need to be weighed at 12 weeks, and 12 months' so I felt stupid and never went again..
From what I read on here HVs cause more harm than good really x
Yeah not taken Max to a HV in ages.
We weigh him on our wii fit
Your not a bad mum
oh this made me smile
I sit Aliyah on my scales at home
I do go to weigh ins though,only because i thought all you girls went so thought id better take her like monthly lol
God it's the only use we have for it!
It's so funny because he tries to crawl off it aswell.
slightly frightened i'm gonna lose my children in leeds haha!!
I'll swap my maxxie and yours
you wont tell the difference they answer to the same name!
Noooo don't feel like that! I haven't been since ari's jabs either, I only went the other day cus I have no idea how to or what weaning was so I wanted some advice but they just made me feel rubbish and was massive waste of time!! x
You'd have to take Frazer then, because my two always seem to answer to the wrong name
And I'm daddy apparently!! (OH likes to think they're talking to him, but really the twins are just thick and call me daddy and him "brubba" ...which i think means brother!) <<< yes my children are idiots!!
OH MY GOD I LOVE THEM! haha that is adorable!
Noo you aren't a bad mom at all! We only get to go to the doctors at certain times unless they are sick and Arianna is rarely sick so I never know her weight.
Your not a bad mom at all. Every is different. With me I go whenever the doctor tells me too. There was a 2 week, 4 weeks, 2 month, 4 month, 6 month then I think it goes to 10 months or maybe 12. But each time we go she gets a shot so there is a reason for us going if she was just going to get weighed I wouldn't be paying to go.
