We had our 9 month check up today for the little guy. These things are always uneventful. And I think they are such a waste so I don’t know why I keep going back! I guess I think I’m going to miss out on something, lol.
It went good though. He is 50% for everything. He weighed 20.5 lbs and is 28inches.
I feel like the Dr. always puts him in a box. “He is this age, he should be doing this that and the other. Line him up with the other kids for his shots”… He said he ‘should’ be drinking less milk and eating more food. Says who? I’m not on the dr.s schedule… I’m on Jaidan’s schedule. Luckily I have my BBC friends that give me support in these areas!!
He also asked me if I knew the risks I was putting Jaidan in by not getting him vaccinated. First of all I don’t feel the same way about vaccinations as he does. I feel like I would be putting him more at risk if I WERE to get him vaccinated. He said plenty of kids with a prolonged QT get vaccinated. Good for them… I’m not doing it just because ‘other people do or have’…
They did a finger prick to test for iron deficiency also. They said no news is good news.
Jaidan is napping now and then we are going to the Botanic Gardens for a photoshoot with our photographer, Jill!! Not sure why, but she doesn’t have her studio anymore & let us know yesterday. Fine with us! We have a 20 minutes drive instead of 45 minutes!
