First off, went to wic. Autumn was weighed on scale that you move the weights around and balance it out. Clothes on, 9 lbs 6 oz. Doctors office, weighed on digital scale, no clothes 8 lbs 12 oz. Doctor said she's underweight but but shes on the chart and gave me bag of formula in hazardous bag...why would I give my child something to eat thats in a hazardous bag. She didnt clip it. She gave me referralto ENT. She said lip tie needs clipped and posterior tongue tie not that bad...on prescription for ent it says: short frenulum (lower), tight upper lip frenulum. She also said autumn needs to be on multivitamin. Script says poly sol?? Ugh..

Just toss it. And she does not need poly vi Sol. If anything she would only need vitamin d but the enfamil brand is not the best option and may not be needed with spring beginning.

NO POLYVISOL!!! That shit is NASTY and both my kids spit up like the dickens with it! I never gave it to either of my kids after that little disaster and they have never had any sort of vitamin deficiency. They were also breastfed and given fresh foods that I was fortunate enough to be able to make at home, so that may have been part of it. I would definitely stay aay from that damn Poly vi sol crap, though!!! And, obviously, the formula.

The tongue tie should still be clipped. I would ask the ent to do it with the lip ties.

No polyvisol!! You don't need the formula either. I do find it humorous that your goody bag is a biohazard bag.

I think she was referring to the polyvisol being made by enfamil. Enfamil wants your money so bad that if you won't buy their formula they'll try to convince the doctors that breastfeeding moms need to buy their vitamins.

The hazard bag is just a fresh bag with "biohazard" written on it. What's the problem?  If your kid is underweight...sheesh.
