Some Moms Fudge the Truth At Baby Check-Ups

A baby's first year of life is full of milestones that often make their way into the baby book – from the first smile to the first steps. Along the journey, infants visit their doctors often for checkups. Aside from the vaccinations that occur, mamas usually look forward to finding out their children's height and weight and to discuss any concerns. Nurses tend to ask a series of questions about the kiddo's development — everything from, "Is he sitting up on his own?" to, "Is he following objects with his eyes?" A friend recently told me that sometimes she fibs her answers. If she's not sure, she says, "Yes," and then races home to see if he can do it. Do you tell the truth when asked about developmental milestones at your baby's checkups?
