I had a baby 2 weeks ago and the health visitor has said she's going to do a bedroom check. I've already got a 3 year old, and never had one with him and just wondered if this was normal.
I'm one of those who thinks "if you've got nothing to hide then you needn't worry" but I feel really insulted the way she spoke to me. She's the same health visitor as I had with my son, and I've never really got on with her and I feel really uncomfortable about it.
I just worry that she's going to be really picky and say this isn't right etc etc and then report me to social services.
I mean I'm probably being stupid but I really think she doesn't like me and I worry that her feelings may influence her work. Also, she rings and asks to visit in the next 10 mins, and she turned up out the blue the once to see my son (we had swine flu so although I invited her in she obviously scarpered lol). I mean every time she rings and asks to come, I always say yes, and I've never been involved with social services (nor my family).
My son's a healthy 3 year old and is thriving, he was born 5 weeks premature and was 5lb but is now huge (not fat!!) he's in 5-6 year clothes. He's got brilliant speech, he knows so much stuff, a lot more than the average 3 year old, he's loved so much and I am getting so worked up that she'll say something and I'll lose my kids.
Can someone please tell me if the bedroom checks are normal, and hopefully put my mind at rest. Also, is it normal for them just to phone up and turn up in less than an hour? Like I said, I've never been involved with social services, never had any reason for them to doubt my parenting, I mean I don't even smoke or drink!! lol.
Thanks in advance for any help x x x
