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

Just tell him you don't like him doing that. It's as simple as that.

The one that we have has seen them since they were first born and we LOVE her.  She used to work under a different one, a male one, and we bought our children in for a well visit and one of our children had a bit of baby acne.  He decided to mention that it wouldn't scar.  Even though that wasn't something we were thinking about.  Also, when one of our children were about 6 months old, we had to rush him to the ER and he was admitted because he had stopped breathing.  That same male pediatrician made sure to mention that our 6 month old wasn't allowed to eat or drink anything until he saw him in the am.  No one came until about noon the next day and it wasn't even him.  I was livid.  Thankfully, we had nice and sweet nurses that gave the poor baby some sugar water because he was STARVING.  Ever since then, I didn't even want to so much as look at that man.

Quoting AleaKat:

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.

We did too, until he decided to work full time in his clinic in Haití.

No, because they lack the emotions that women have.  Way to assume though.

I dont know, I think kissing a baby is a natural reaction for a lot of people. Especially if its on the forhead or back of head like you stated in a previous post. however, if you dont want him doing it, just ask him not too. I doubt he means any ill intent by it.
