I just wanted to post about health visitors, i have seen a few posts mention the fact that they have health visitors come round to there houses to check there child developments and weight etc, and a few of my friend who live local get one coming around too but Ive not had one visit since Harry's been about 4 weeks old and they only came once and just told me about signs to watch out for with post natal depression and gave me a pack of leaflets.
Its not that i want or need one, i was just wondering who has one and who doesn't?
If i want harry to be weighed i have to take him to a Surestart baby clinic that's run for a a hour and half every Monday, but to be honest they are always filled with chavvy mothers (sorry for the stereotype) that make me feel intimidated, so i don't bother going, last time i went was 27th June 2011(only no that because i just checked Harry's red book)
I had to take him for a 1yr check up but it was when he was 11 months old and they gave him blocks and he passed them from hand to hand, they asked if i had any concerns i said no and they asked if his eyes had been followed up by the hospital (will eventually do a post about Harry's poorly eyes) and that was that, we were there about 15mins max.
If i ever have any health concerns for Harry i take him to the doctors, so what role does a health visitor play?
am i missing out?
Though id end with a picture of the dude himself, doing a bit of chalking!
