    archie is 81/2 weeks and hasnt had his 6 week check ...who does it? do i need to make an appointment? my other kids are older and i cant remember

    am beginning to panic now as am reading on here about 6 week checkups

    the hv came last week and all she did was measure his head (she had forgotten her scales to weigh him)

    she never mentioned his check up and where im supposed to go for it

    my gp did ours... just made appt after they sent me several letters to remind me beforehand... (in that time it was way too early to make appt as the gremlins behind the desk only book appts a few days b4 the actual appt date and give u the 3rd degree and diagnose you b4 seeing a doctor).

    Alasdair's was an 8 wk as opposed to 6 wk check. He had it after his 8 wk injections. Ours was done by our GP (imms done by nurse before hand). I'd give your GPs surgery a ring to check! Or ask your HV next time you see her. It's not absolutel necessary that your LO has imms and check up at 8 wk exactly I don't think.

    HV told us when we had to attend baby clinic 6 weeks(ish), got weighed, head circumference then along to the Dr for check.
    I was told AJ wouldn't be able to have his immunisations until he'd had his check.
