Is a Blood test standard for 3 year olds doctor visit?

My Son just went to his 3 year Doctors visit. All is well. But the Dr. wrote me a prescription to bring him to a lab for a CBC, diff?, & lead. Is this standard? I am really nervous about them drawing blood on a 3 year old. I have to go to a Quest Diagnostics lab on L.I. NY. What are your experiences? Also what is a diff? I forgot to ask the Dr.
Thanks!

  • My son got one, but, only because WIC kept pricking his finger and saying he was anemic and I said he wasn't. So, they sent me to get him blookwork. Turns out, I was right.
