So I’m seeing a lot of you post about the HV coming round to check on baby, and I remember around the 9 month mark everyone was talking about some booklet we are meant to receive to check baby’s progress. I haven’t received any of these things, the last time any HV was in touch with me was when baby was still a newborn or had her last vaccinations. We haven’t had a check up since she was around 4 months I think and that was at the GP, HV didn’t come round. (I have taken her to the gp since for other things like rash etc) but not just for general checkups. I haven’t heard anything about a HV coming around now to visit either, I’m just wondering if I didn’t get this booklet everyone got am I also not going to get a visit?
I’m not worried about baby’s development, she’s extremely smart and has been walking independently since 9 months, she eats and drinks well, she’s speaking afew words. If anything I’m upset because I want her to slow down and remain a baby but she’s already acting like a toddler. I’m just concerned that I haven’t come across anyone else who is also not being checked on / being given booklets to make sure their baby is fine.
Has anybody else also not got the booklet/checklist and not heard anything about a visit ?
