We are in the UK and they don't do a checkup here at 9 months. The health care system here is very hands off.
Did you do a 9-month checkup? What sort of things did your ped discuss with you? Any milestones I should be looking out for?
In Canada where I am from they do not do one either.
But in the US where I am living they do. We had her iron level checked. She discussed eating more solids including foods she can pick up herself. She asked questions like is she clapping her hands, talking, playing games, is she finger grasping with her thumb and finger, is she bearing weight on her feet with assistance, is she pulling herself up. She also discussed home safety as our baby is now crawling. Oh and they should respond to their name. Oh we were also told even though we are feeding solids we should not go below 24ozs of formula per day until she is 12 months.
Our 9mo appointment was her last HepB vaccine and her first flu shot (ours was back in October). We did measurements, talked about foods & went over her development survey. There weren't really any major milestones we discussed. I got the info for her 12mo appointment, we didn't discuss WCM until then but I'm BF so I'm not sure if that's why.
Here's the link to the development survey http://www.wrnmmc.capmed.mil/Health Services/Medicine/Pediatrics/Shared Documents/ASQ-3 9 Mo Set B.pdf
We just had our 9 mo check up this week. We discussed height/weight/head measurements. It was also DS's pre op physical because he is having his circumcision revised in a few weeks. The pedi said that they should be eating table food by 10 months and to avoid eggs, nuts and shellfish due to allergy risk.
We delayed a few vaccines, so the babies got their 2nd Hep B and their 3rd pneumococcal vaccine (if you do the regular schedule, there would not have a been a vaccine due at 9 months).
I asked some questions about sleep b/c both babies have been waking at night and I'm so tired that I bring them to our bed and nurse them back to sleep. The pedi said to let them CIO so that they learn to self soothe. I knew she'd say that, but hearing the pedi say it makes it a little easier to do.
