Exactly, in my head I was thinking " IS THIS REAL ? AM I REALLY HEARING THIS !???" It's been a loooooooong time , I mean 9 years since I had a last had a baby


Quoting jridgill:

It's hard to believe someone in healthcare could be so ignorant. Especially with how heavy they Re trying to promote breastfeeding in most places now.



Quoting bbyB10:

This is a good one like I quoted before ..... I swear my eyes popped OUT OF MY FACE , In disbelief I COULDN'T BELIEVE WHAT I WAS HEARING !





You know my older ones are 13 and9 I was a teen and went with whatever they told me, I did not know what I know today and besides my age difference this time around TIMES HAVE SURELY CHANGED






Quoting jridgill:

I probably would've laughed and said "are you serious?". I don't think I could've contain myself with so much ignorance. Oh my. Lol







Quoting shortyali:

I just nod and smile. In one ear and out the other. DH told me after the last Ped appt that I looked like a bobble head doll, lol. It was his NP and she tried telling me that bm expires after 6 weeks so there's no need to bf after 6 weeks. Also not to pump to much during the first 6 weeks because then baby can only bf for leas than that. Because you know when baby is born you fill up with exactly 6 weeks worth of milk and ince its gone to bad so sad, right. **SMH**DS2's next appt is with the actual dr so in going to talk to him about that bad info.

Well I guess that depends on who you talk to and if there are any problems. Mostly it's just to get them used to the idea. 1 of my kids started shortly after 1 because she had a problem. My son started at 3 and my youngest will start at 3 unless there is a problem. Of course some dentist recommend them coming as soon as they get teeth. All about the money.

Quoting Kris_PBG:

Kids are actually supposed to start seeing a dentist at age 1.




Quoting bbyB10:

It was a " screening" as part of her "health"






Quoting jridgill:

Is there a reason the baby sees a dentist? Our doctor was very supportive. If she wasn't then I would've changed. We don't see a pediatrician. We see a family doctor. My kids don't start going to the dentist until 3 unless there is a problem.

No - it is actually what ADA recommends. They do more than just get used to it at that age and recommend it even with no obvious issues.

Obviously not everyone follows the recommendation, but both our pediatrician and our pediatric dentist strongly encourage it.

I suppose.

Before I discussed it with our doctor I looked up many articles and the first 5 or so I read stated that while they recommend it that it's usually not necessary. It depends on a few factors. Any signs of problems? History of problems in family members? Do parents teach good brushin habits?
My doctor recommended 3 of there wasn't any issues. Of course our dentist said as soon as they get teeth. I asked why she wanted to see them that early and it was basically just in case. We have dental and our visits are covered but I still chose to wait. It is recommended because try want to get kids used to it and show them how to take care of their teeth. I don't think my kids need that so I chose to take the advice of my doctor and many other articles online. We had an expert on cafemom once and I asked her about it and she also said that she herself recommends 3 unless there are problems.

I guess it's just like any other parenting decision we make when we have kids!

If you look you can find numerous articles that back up what I'm saying as I'm sure you can to back up what you're saying.

Yes - I definitely have heard that philosophy as well.

I am a "better to be safe than sorry" neurotic (lol!) so we went with following the formal recommendations.

The kids got fluoride treatments at those visits as well as cleanings, which was good, as our water does not have fluoride in it.

Unfortunately, ds1 had some dental issues we were not aware of, so it was a total blessing we went. He is living proof why the formal recommendation is to start early! Had we not gone, the issues would have been much worse by 3. Ds2 would have been fine if we waited, but that is only info we know now with hindsight, and it only benefited him to have those extra cleanings/treatments. :)

I just smile and nod and promptly ignore any of that kind of 'advice'. It is, after all, only their opinion. This goes for any number of parenting decisions that I have made :)
