We don't do well baby visits, our old ped was cool with delaying, the only one we've seen since we moved is not. But DD is has not been sick since she was a newborn. Well not other than little colds here and there.

We went to all of ours, but we also vaxed up until the 12 mo shots. I hadn't researched it enough before then.

Re: If you dont vax.....

DD has never had any shots, but I took her to all her WBVs during her first year (more, actually). The first ones were at our original ped, but after they made ONE fearmongering comment to me, I switched. I still went to our "pro-non-vax" (LOL) doctor regularly because I wanted the paper trail. That way if CPS thinks I'm neglecting my child for not vaxing her, I've at least got something to back me up. But now she'll probably only go maybe once a year.

Nope. We did until he was about 10 months old because he had constant ear infections, so we were there constantly. Plus, he was born with clubbedfeet so we had to get referrals to his Orthopedic Specialist and Orthotics Docs, and then yet another referral to his ENT for tubes. OH, and then we went for his Chicken Pox to have it documented (so they can't make him miss school if there is an outbreak in the future).

We never go to out Ped anymore. Only our specialists. But I hate our Peds honestly. I've thought about looking for another and will eventually, but right now it's just not a priority. We'll go to our Ped when he's 18 months just to get his weight and height stats for his calendar. I don't mind going every now and then because it's only about 1/2 a mile from our house. And at 18m he'll need another referral to his ENT, I think. He's still got 1 tube, so we go in every few months so they can check on it.

Sorry, that ended up rambling a good bit. But no, in general, I don't. I would for the first, maybe 3 months? with a new baby. I just like to moniter stuff closely at that tiny.

Re: If you dont vax.....

So far DD has been fully vaxed and been to all WBV, but that was before I decided to do research about non vax (due to recent reactions from her and other babes).

Im not sure if I want to stop the well baby though partially because I like to know what her height and weight is, but mainly for the paper trail as pp mentioned, but I really hate all the poking and proding they do.
This last visit she wasnt at all happy with the ped removing her diaper. She really did not like that at all.

We are a military family and I just dont know what would happen if we didnt go.

Re: If you dont vax.....

I dont vax and we dont do well visits....I actually think I will try and find new ped anyway-maybe-I mean we really dont go to the ped at all....my children thank goodness have never been sick enough to warrant a visit. IN almost 4 years and 3 children we have been MAYBE 6 times total.

Re: If you dont vax.....

We aren't vaxing anymore, and we got h*ll from our visits, so we stopped doing well baby visits and I am going to go to a different doctor if my kids ever need to see a Ped, we really try to avoid doctors at all cost.

We still do the well baby visits...but had to switch peds once because she humiliated us everytime we went in.

The drs are much nicer to us now that we're delaying and vaxing a little (we had to switch again because we moved)
