No Well-Baby Check-ups for us If my baby is WELL then there is no reason to go into the doctors office. Just as I wouldn't take them into the hospital unless something was wrong. That being said I would NOT hesitate to go in if I had any concerns. My youngest is almost a year old and we did take him in for the 4 day and 2 week check-ups but because we are not vax'ing and he is healthy and growing and thriving we don't go in. I will take him in the next few months just for another check up since it will have been a year, just to have something on his records as far as weight gain, etc. Everyone I know in the health field (that I've asked) agreed that the WBV for the first 2 yrs are set up around the vax schedule and unnecessary if you are not following that schedule.
