Dr Skiles came in and checked him out all over and checked his muscle tone and said everything looked fine. Then she said Ok were ready for shots today and I said NO. She said what do you mean No and I told her was doing the late start vaccines and we would start around 3 months. She said there is no 3 month appointment only a 2 month appointment. I said well hes not starting until them. She said then asked me whats the big deal? I said I don't want to start them now and I've read up on it and were not starting them today. She then explained that the shots weren't a big deal and whatever and then she proceeded to tell me about 6 shots he would get the next appointment including the Hepatitis B shot. All I could think in my head is this Dr is rude and I want out of here right now.
At the 5 day appointment they stuck us in a room next to a baby boy getting cir-cum(sized) I purposely wrote it that way so that I wont get 67 comments about it. This baby screamed at the top of his lungs for twenty five minutes straight I vowed if we did decide to get it done it would not be done at this place. I said there the whole time holding my precious 5 day old baby crying my eyes out and almost puking and the sound of the pain the baby next door was in. What made me the most mad is both the parents sat in the waiting room leaving him there alone with the doctor. =(
The reason I am telling all of this is because I am switching Dr offices I don't feel like I mesh well with the Dr and she seems to have an attitude and I felt like I didn't know what was best for my son when talking with her.
I have also asked her twice to snip the small frenelum under his tongue so he can nurse properly. I had two lactation consultants in the hospital tell me he would nurse better and it wouldn't hurt as much if we had it snipped. I also had a lactation consultant to my house and she agreed that it needs to be snipped as well. When I pointed this out to the Dr she didn't even look in his mouth and told me that babies don't need it to be snipped to nurse or speak and its barbaric. I wanted to tell her no its not what I heard in the next room was barbaric. She also tried to push that on me as well.
Anyways by baby is healthy doing great. He sleeps constantly, wakes up to feed about every two hours sometimes he tries to eat hourly but mommy says no I'm not a pacifier. He sleeps about 3-4 hr stretches at night. He rarely ever cries only when he is hungry or not in the mood for a diaper change. Other then that he is super smiley all the time. He started tracking us with his eyes and making baby noises today.
I'll leave with some more pics of my adorable son.
