J is four months
Just lazing around at four months. With them big feet! We saw the MCHN just to check weight and get letter for registering J's birth.
J's MCH check up was fine. Helen was the nurse.
Oh you are demand feeding? (as was written on J's history).
How is that going? Good.
So how often is he feeding? (Huh?) He is demand fed.
So every 4 hours? Well it varies...2,3,4 hrs whenever he wants it. (Do I really have to explain demand feeding?!!)
Then she asked about immunisation.
He's fully immunised?
You haven't started yet?
No we will delay.
Oh okay that's personal preference.
So any reason why? Are the older kids immunised?
My older 2 are.
So did something happen to change your mind?
Yes my eldest son had a reaction. (My husband said YEAH! as if to say vaxxing is evil and went on to say we are educated so end discussion.) He suffered with severe eczema after.
Oh but eczema is not caused by the needles.
Well it triggered it.
Well the risks of vaxxing outweigh the risks of the reactions.
Hmmm. (Yeah don't want to argue with you)
Its a personal preference.
And still don't have the letter from our nurse. Frustrating. Would like J's birth registered asap.
