Keep your calm and your baby will keep theirs.
Today’s 4-month well baby check up took a lot longer than normal. It happened to be the start of the flu season and there were several sick babies in the office today.
How I made our well baby check up easier
In the end, my baby did fine. I made sure I stayed relaxed so he wouldn’t feel my anxious energy. I nursed him a little before the doctor came in so he was satisfied. I made sure he was mostly dressed before the nurse came with the shots. He had on his onesie and jacket. Then I immediately nursed him afterwards. All good!
- Nurse before the doctor arrives
- Dress baby mid-way up
- Nurse again before leaving
It’s been a long morning. Now back to work for me!
