A group of us were talking about our DC's births (as you do when you are having a night out trying to get away from it all ) and someone said that a nurse(?) (not the midwife) had mentioned that their baby was perfect except for "skin tags" on the ears that needed snipping off. They said this within half an hour of the birth and scared the mum but when she looked, the ears were just fine, just like DHs.
Now, different hospital, but this exact same thing happened to me and I said so, but not just me... FIVE of the women there had had a similar experience. All the ears were fine. All were scared unnecessarily.
Two of them were in the same hospital. All of us are in the same city.
Did this happen to you? Is there a mad nurse out there going around scaring new mothers?!
Lj8893 Just one of the nurses that come in and out checking after the birth. For me she was lifting DS over to me to BF because I'd had a CS and wasn't to lift him out of his crib myself for first few days. As she handed him over she told me.
Why did she mean by 'skin tags' OP? The ear lobes? Or actual little skin tags that you get sometimes? Bizarre either way! DS was born at Kings last year and there was no weird skin tag nurse so she either missed me or isn't hanging around anymore!
