Freddie's 8 week check

Freddie, milk drunk and grinning at Mummy!
Oops, Freddie is a little over 8 weeks old, but, you know, there are four kids now and it's just not that simple to organise things any more! Not until we're used to having four kids anyway. Still, we did go for his check! So we're not totally awful parents.

The doctor was pleased with him. She weighed him and he is 14lb 1oz and carrying along the same percentile as his previous weigh ins with the Health Visitor, and she did all the usual poakings and proddings that have to be done.

I get the feeling that because we have four now and there have never been any problems with the others everyone assumes that we're going to be doing everything well enough with this one, and know to ask for help if we need it. It's all very relaxed. I remember going for all these checks with Jack and feeling very nervous that I might be judged on my parenting. But now I don't feel that way at all. And maybe because I've done it all before so many times I walk into the surgery with an air of casual confidence that says "I know we're all ok, just confirm it all for us will you?" Or maybe I was just a paranoid newbie parent before, hee hee.

Either way, Freddie is one healthy, happy baby, who is growing and developing just the way he should. And that makes me one very happy mummy!



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too. 

 You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
