Gearing up for this review, after reading through some recent threads slating HVs and NNs, their abruptness, poor advice and unhelpful comments at this time.
Regarding feeding/diet/dental health: She asked me does he use a dummy? (no) does he have a varied diet? (yes) does he attempt to use a cup and a spoon (attempts it yes), do we brush his teeth (of course)
And that was it! Where was the argument about milk, the catsbum at extended breastfeeding, the nagging to use a multivitamin which we never have bothered with? the lecture about not using a bottle after 1 (she didn't ask what delivery system his milk arrives through so actually had no idea if he uses a bottle or breast)
I was all ready to stand my ground but there was no argument to have. It all went very smoothly, she seemed very capable, very experienced and very professional.
That's good to know, just waiting for DD's HV to arrive to carry out her 9 month check so fingers crossed she behaves herself too (th HV, not DD). I think I may get a telling off about her weight as DD is a bit of a porker
