My daughter who had her second baby in January went to the local hospital’s baby clinic for her 6 month old baby’s check-up.
The nurse welcomed my daughter, baby and husband. She then made a statement which left my daughter and son in law speechless. She told them: “your son is very obese!” Then she lectured them on how to formula feed and told them the correct instructions are on the back of the tin. (Mind you the nurse herself was overweight and could lose a few pounds).
She did NOT ask them how or with what food source (tin, package, jar breast, etc.) he was fed, did NOT measure or weigh him and did NOT ask if there were any problems.
My daughter ONLY Breastfeeds the baby does NOT supplement his food intake with anything and there is no Formula tin in their house.
She came over to see me, distraught at the comments of the nurse, and I told her to write a complaint letter to the hospital liaison officer.
What do you all think?
