We do the check-ups. I feel like medical care should be mostly to stay healthy, not just to heal ailments. So i like seeing our dr and having dd be familiar and comfortable with her. Our dr is within our circle of friends, and our little local hospital is struggling, so for me I feel it is important to use their services so we don't lose them!

My doctor, at least, checks inside the eyes/ears/nose/mouth, listens to breathing and heart, and palpates the abdomen for something (I don't know what, hernias? probably multiple things). Checks height/weight and head circumference as well. He is my 1st baby, and I've been bombarded with comments about how big/fat/husky he is since he was maybe 1 mo old, and going to the doc always puts things in perspective he is actually a small baby, lay people make a very untrustworthy assessment of your baby's size. She also checks iron levels. I can't do these things at home, and I value that once-over.
