Am I the only one?
January 25, 2013 at 7:19 PM
With a tiny baby? She's ten months and stil fits in some 3-6 month clothes. She has zero interest in eating anything but breastmilk. I just seem to remember my boys being a lot bigger and more advanced. She's more like a six month old. I'm kind of scared to take her to a Dr. (I skip well checkups because we don't vaccinate) because I don't want someone accusing me of not taking care of her.

    Well baby checks are for more than shots.

    You need to take her in.

    How are milestones?  Is she growing?  I remember talking about supply and formula stuff with you months ago--how's all of that going now?

    ETA: went back through to check and it was just pumping slightly less than was needed for work days.  I think I was thinking of someone else with a similar avatar who went through some FTT stuff.

    Yep, all 3 of my kids are small. My daughter was a small baby but my twins were even smaller than her. My twin boys are 6 now. One's 38 lbs and the other is 42 lbs. 

    If you're concerned about her development though, you might want to check out Early Child Intervention, assuming you're in the States ( though I think they would need something from a doctor)

    They don't need a dr referral--you can just call and get an evaluation.  Early Intervention is run through your county and even if you can't find the number (ours has a different name), you can call the general county offices and have someone transfer you.

    Do you have a wholistic doctor you can see?

    I didn't say she had to.

    In my opinion, she should.

    I know a lot of people skip well baby checks.

    I don't. I don't advise people to either.

    Well baby checks are for more than shots. we are a not vax family and I still take my kids to their well child checks.

    Ah Ok. Couldn't remember. All three of my kids went through Early Child Intervention, but it's been awhile :)
