Just wondering if anyone is aware of natural attachment sensitive healthcare provider in Adelaide or surrounding suburbs????
I've had shocking experiences with my child health nurses and I've had enough.
Thanks in advance

I'm in the southern suburbs. Sick of the "breast is best" and then five minutes later "oh actually breast is not enough by itself...your child needs three solid meals a day plus snacks" at 8 months.
"Your child MUST eat meat at least once a day because otherwise she'll get no iron"...

Why do you see a child health nurse? If its just for weigh ins and BFing advice, is there an alternative? Sorry, I just find them fairly useless most of the time and some of their 'advice' is shocking (and outdated).
Maybe you can use the chemist scales and join an ABA group or see an LC? For support, perhaps join a local playgroup and/or ABA group.

I was seeing one because I needed support in regards to my daughters separation anxiety which has resulted in her constant comfort feeding over night. I went to a day sleep service where they basically wrapped her and encouraged me to feed her to sleep, which has been part of the problem. So I think I need support different to what they are offering.

I've never been to a CHN, you don't have to go. I agree with PP, if you need BFing advice see ABA, weigh ins at chemist and find a few playgroups, one will have a few AP parents.
