Did/Do you take your kids to your doc appointments?

I took the twins to almost every OB and U/S because I didn't have anyone to watch them but I'm kinda wondering if taking all 3 kids this time around is going to spell trouble and maybe I should hire a sitter? Especially since my son (who has autism) doesn't do well in doctor offices. Last time I was able to keep Nathan (and Reagan) in the stroller but I can't do that this time around...YIKES!

Sorry for all the lame questions. I really do appreciate your comments and advice.

Yes, but I also didn't go very often. Maybe 6 times total. Now that my husband works from home and my oldest is 13, I don't, but back then I did. After a couple, a friend and I had an "out day" arrangement. Once a month I took her kids at my house for the whole day (1st Friday, 9-5) and she did mine (3rd Friday, 9-5) We always made appointments for those days and it worked great for both of us for years til we both moved.

I did only when I had to. If I scheduled ahead of time I always found a sitter, but I had some last minute appointments they did have to come to

Last time around I brought all of them once, and I would usually take our then youngest with me. It's not a terribly long appointment so it was fine.

With my first four they all went to every appt and so did my DH. With Brayden I scheduled my appts for when they would be in school.

yep...most of the time....it was a pain but I didn't have a choice.

If I end up preggo again I think I'll arrange at least something for the younger ones...or maybe just hte older three....?? lol

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
