Post subject: Health visitors
Ok I am really confused. I had my health visitor come round when Emily was 13 days old which was the first visit from her. She was very pleased about how I was coping (she observed me with the girls as health visitors do) and she applauded my knowledge on breastfeeding and babywearing. When she left I asked when the next visit will be. she said after assessing my needs she was satisfied that she wouldn't be visiting again as she said I am coping well. I have just got an answer message to say she is coming tomorrow.. does this mean something is wrong?? I'm really worried as to why shes visiting. Anyone else know what it could be? xx

Yeh went ok, it was all over the fact I had an eating disorder years ago and I didn't mention it in the last visit (I forgot it was that long ago)
But in all honesty I don't see why she needed to come round for that.. I'm hardly stick thin
I don't actually know why she came round.. she didn't ask me if I still had an eating disorder just interrogated me as to why I didn't tell her about it.. I didn't realise you have to tell them your whole life story!?
How are things with you heath? How's abigail? madness to think they are all over a month old pretty much. Emily will be a month old on Sunday! Its going far too quick. I want another one xx

Aww glad it went ok. Things are going fine, although she cries a lot! I know babies generally do, but sometimes she's just inconsolable and I hate not knowing what's wrong. It could be the heat although OH thinks she's teething already as shes chewing her fist and drooling s lot.
