The Doctor is In.

You guys I have had SO MANY check ups this week. And this doctor doesn’t even take my insurance. But she does take popsicles. And so far, I have been declared ‘ok’. I am also EXTREMELY up to date on my shots. And your shots. And all of the neighbors shots.

(Lucky me. My husband had the audacity to cough during a check up and he was declared SICK. Babystar is a really good doctor. Even if she pronunces check up as chep-uck.)

Babystar is TERRIFIED of the doctor. All was well until our last visit, when she screamed and fought everything. She didn’t even like the scale. Which is weird because she LOVES the scale at home. (They wouldn’t take my word for her weight, though. I guess that is good but it was annoying.)

She also cannot handle band-aids if she actually has a need for one. She will put a band-aid on anything or anyone, including herself, any other time. I find them everywhere. In fact, I think I should add $7.99 for the multipack I bought recently because Babystar had used all the band-aids. And by ‘used’ I mean ‘wasted’. She can reach the band-aid drawer and almost always comes into the bathroom and pulls at least one out when I pee. Maybe more if I am too slow.

In an attempt to get her more comfortable with this whole doctor thing, I bought her a doctor kit. I really wanted an original Fisher-Price doctor set like the one I had when I was a kid. I totally should have stalked eBay or something. But I was impatient and I just bought the first one I found at Target. ($24.99)

Babystar LOVES it and I have had several thousand check-ups this week. According to the doctor, I am ok.

Adorably, when she bumps her head or stubs her toe, she comes to me for a check-up. As long as I use enough of the doctor tools, I can declare her ‘ok’ and she seems to buy it. I hope she doesn’t ever require proof of my nonexistent PhD.

Have you bought a doctor kit for your toddler? Did it help him or her feel more comfortable at the actual doctor’s office?

  1. My daughters love their doctor kits. They play with them all the time and are always giving checkups to me and the toys.

    My oldest has started to bring her doctor kit every time we visit the doctors. She also brings along a doll. She then gives her doll a checkup while the doctor is giving her a checkup.

    Both the combination of playing with her doctors kit and watching Doc McStuffins on Disney has really helped my oldest go from not wanting to go to the doctors to enjoying her visits.


  2. Your little doctor is adorable. My daughter loves to pretend play as a doctor and her all-time favorite is giving shots. Seeing them pretending to be someone caring for us is totally fun and cute. Love your post.


  3. Oh my what a little cutie! Those big glasses look adorable on her! Can’t wait until my little one is old enough to play with doctors sets 🙂


  4. Adorable!!! What a diligent doctor she is. 🙂
    Someone gave Squish a Doc McStuffins kit (we don’t watch the show, though), which is a crappy it. The girls do enjoy playing with it, though. THey have the strange desire to make almost anything a syringe and gift a “shot” to us, weirdly. My girls are always good about seeing their doctor, so I’m not really in the market for a good kit.
