Im not sure if my GP has hurt my baby unnecessarily. He had is 8 week checks done by the GP and his immunisations done by the health visitor today. I was prepared for the screams of the immunisations however not what the doctor done to him. I have read what should happen at these checks things like cheking eyes testicles etc and the hip check which i have read consists of moving the leg/hip in a circular movement. This doctor pulled my baby's leg so hard to see if it would pop out! This was so painful for him i got such a freight.
Has this happened to everyone or has she done this wrong? She ddoes not have a great reputation and i am worried that she has hurt him!

Please help.

Thank you x

If he is fine now then it is very unlikely that she has hurt him. Unless there are visible signs of injury then give your health visitor a call in the morning to talk it through.
