I went to my pediatrician today. Everything seems fine and he's healthy. A little low on his weight but nothing to be concerned about yet.
However, when she asked if I was breastfeeding, she immediately wrote me a prescription for Vitamin D for my son. I don't get it. She didn't bother to even check to see if he was deficient. I can gaurantee if she had, he'd come up just fine!! I spend at least 30-60 minutes in the sun every single day, take my prenatals still, eat healthy, AND my son spends at least 10-20 minutes in the sun every other day. I walked out without the prescription.
Has this happened to anyone else? I understand if he's deficient, but to not even check is absurd to me! I feel it's kind of like me going in and saying "I don't feel good" to my doctor and she just writes me a prescription for whatever without checking me out.
