I don't mean this to come out mean or condisending, but how often do you take your baby to the doctor?
My baby has a slight fever of 99.6 and has barely eaten today. Every mom said take him to the doctor or call the doctor. I don't feel that there is a need to get the doctor involved. My child needs a little tylenol and monitoring of wet diapers... which took me a minute to stop panicking and remember.
Don't you think you are exposing your baby to more germs by going to a clinic. Do you think all those unnecessary trips are driving up insurance costs?
I remember how I took my first child to the doctor with every little thing and the doctors always just sent me home with marching orders to keep him hydrated and give him tylonel if his fever gets high. Finally I stopped going because I realized a fever is the body's natural way of fighting an infection and unless it's 104 after a dose of tylenol, the doctors can't really do anything if it's viral.
Are you a mom that takes you baby/child to the doctor for every little thing? Does your insurance status effect how often you go? For examply, if you have PA/MA do you take your child to the doctor often?
