My pediatrician keeps kissing my baby...**ETA** ***ETA #2***

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I have a newborn, I took her to the dr at 4 days old for her first weight check then just again at 11 days old for another weight check. When he picks her up after exam he kisses her, twice the first time and once the second.

How would you feel about this?

ETA: To answer some repeated questions

He is american male high 30's low 40's. I'm not saying I think he is a pervert, I was just shocked! I just wanted opinions and to see how other moms would feel or react!

 

ETA #2

Ok, so the kisses were on the back of her head and her forehead. He is my son dr as well but only for the last year so ive met him 3 other times. He is not a family friend or anything. He has never been inapproiate with my son or anything like that or i obviously wouldnt have taken my daughter to him.

I feel that it was unprofessional and pretty inapproiate considering he is a dr and he of all peoople should know how dangerous germs are to a 4 day old baby.I do not feel this way only because he is a man, a dr is a dr to me

To the women calling me a liar, read the replies, so many women said their drs do this so get the hell out of my post

Oh we have the greatest male pediatrician!
We have gone through 2 female ped and both if them were so-so.
We absolutely love our new one.


Quoting MrsBridges19:

I don't even trust male pediatricians anyway.  Just like I don't go to a male ob/gyn.

Maybe it's a cultural thing. My MILs boyfriend has to touch a baby on the arm or head or wherever to wish them a healthy life.

I think it depends on the intent behind it... my PCP, depending on the reason for my visit will give me a hug and a kiss on the forehead before I leave.  At first I thought it was odd, but I know she only means it to be conforting, and I take it as such.  It is nice to have a Dr. that cares enough about me to really talk to me and not just go through the "checklist", and if that means getting a hug and peck on the forehead after my appointment, I am fine with that.
