Just wondering what people think of their Maternal & Child Health Nurses?
I feel really uncomfortable taking my baby to my nurse and would prefer not to. I feel like she doesn't listen to me. For example, I was trying to tell her the other day that my baby seems to be showing signs that she might need something more than milk. Rather than listen to what I was trying to say she cut me off and told me that they don't recommend solids till 6 months. That's fair enough, I understand that's what they think is right but she needs to take into account that not all babies are the same. I don't mean to get into a discussion about when to start solids, It's more the fact that the nurse wouldn't even listen to me. She see's my baby once a month, I see her 24/7. This is just one example. Every single time I go there I come out feeling really annoyed with the nurse.
Does anyone know if I have to go to Maternal Health or can I take my baby to our Family Doctor for her checks?
