i think the main thing for bringing the kids in is to check size...make sure they are growing properly...etc....but i think maybe you should find a pediatrician and at least go in and talk to them...figure out a game plan on bringing him in etc....you'll still need a dr if he gets sick...so best to find one now....and then discuss your options with them and what they recommend ya know?

Yeah that totally makes sense, I was just unsure if every month was too much since he does not get shots.

i would probably say they wouldn't see him every month but they might want to see him every couple of months just to see his growth etc....

I agree with Kristy, I think it would be good to find a pedi and still go in to make sure Drake is on track regarding his development. One of the things I always looked forward to at our well visits was a sheet that described various skills, concerns, and tips for each age. It would reassure me that Leah was progressing well!

I am the minority. I take baby for the first few months in the beginning, but then after that, I only do sick visits or if I have a concern.

I have enough sense to know when something is not right and I believe in mother's intuition. So no, I do not do well baby visits after 2-4 months depending on how baby is doing.

if it helps, we dont have well baby visits here. basically they trust the mother to know if the baby is thriving or not, and if they have any concerns there are a few places to go to get advice.

We do have developmental checks at 4, 9, 12 and 18 months and we have an optional weigh clinic once a week that we can go to if there is any concerns. Harry hasnt seen a doctor since he was 6 weeks old, and wont unless he is sick.

I think you should still take him into the dr for the first couple years at regular intrevals. At least here, they are screening for other abnormalities that may not arise right at birth. They always listen to Avery's heart and lungs with a stethescope, check her hips, fontanel, eyes, ears. It is much more than just a weight check here. And we don't get vaccines at the drs here either- we go to clinics and get them from nurses.

I think I am just going to make some phone calls. He needs a new Dr anyhow since we are in a new state. Thank you for all your advice.

Good Luck! I agree it is important to have a Pedi, but once your a patient, I have never had an issue only going when we need to. You will find your groove and you can always choose to go back every 3m, 6m or whatever works for you. I like to do a 12m check up because of growth. I am not the type of parent that worries about milestones unless it is way off. DS did not really talk until he was over 3, I was not putting him in therapy which seems popular around here when they are not talking at 3. He is full of piss and vinegar now. Follow your instincts, they will not fail you hun. GL on your search!
