Autumns 1 year check up good so far. 21 lbs 9 oz. I'm nervous because this docs been hinting me to wean at 1 or give cows milk at 1 so today's the day she will say something if she does. She's gonna be mad when I tell her I don't give her iron supplements. Also Chris grandma wants to go out for lunch with me and kids and Chris. I don't want to but one thug outta line I'm NOT going to put up with anything!

There's no reason to give iron supplements unless there is a deficiency determined by a blood draw.

Yet another pediatrician so wedded to the formula culture that she ignores biological imperatives. You however, know better and can educate her. Ask her why cow breastmilk is better for babies than human breastmilk!

Quoting mama-smurf: They detected a faint murmur. I'm sad


And they probably won't detect it the next time. It happened with both my children. It either wasn't there at all or it went away.

Different doctor. Younger. She said no need for cows milk and she's very happy I'm continuing to breast feed and hopes I do so for long as I can whether it be 2 yrs old or 5!

They want her to see cardiologist. She's ahead for weight and length. Above 75%. She's also so surprised she's so calm. Autumn didn't touch stethoscope or anything during check up. She sat still and just smiled.

Your milk has iron in it. It is the most easily absorbed form of iron that your baby could ingest.

I forgot to ask... Are they going to do an actual blood draw or a finger/heel prick to test the iron? The prick tests are highly inaccurate.
