 The worst thing my Ex Pedi did was gave me a can of Enfimil A.R. (added rice) for my son a week after I had him, because he weighed 6lbs 13oz. He was 7lbs 1oz at birth and he was 5 weeks early.She gave me the can and said there that will put some meat on his bones... OMG!

"Baby must be weaned by one and eating one full jar of meat to ensure proper nutrition"... We didn't see her again.

She was very pro-bfing and happy I was doing it, but it was never really a big topic of discussion for us. For the first few visits she let me stay late in the room to nurse ds before heading home.

I can honestly say our ped has never given bad breastfeeding advice. He always tells me after my sons well visits to stay and nurse if I want to use the room to do so, he loves hearing that he is still nursing at 15 months old and he was always really big on no solids at all for 6 months and when you begin offering, always nurse first! He's a big big advocate for nursing little ones.

 Wow, no kidding like what grounds did she even have to say that. I would have said call CPS and i will call MedWatch, & State Medical Licencing board...

When my son was 2 he had a really bad case of meningitis and nearly died. When he got so sick the pediatrician had us take him to the ER to meet us there. We got there before she did and they sent in the on call pediatrician to look at him. My son was running an extremely high fever(104-106), was completely out of it, and kept throwing up. I'd dealt with sick kids before but I knew this was much worse. So I was already freaking out and he tells me "This probably has something to do with the fact that he is still breastfeeding and unvaccinated"....... say what? He also told me could turn me into CPS and get him taken away from me for molestation! When our pediatrician got there she set him straight and griped him out!
