I would let them know you are interested. These things they do to all the babies, heart echo, labs, x rays. They do it so often that they levee the parents out. Many parents don't even ask. Ask what their plans are. You can ask to see his labs our get a copy of them they records and get informed what each mean. Let them know you want to know everything.EVERYTHING they do to YOUR child and you also should be a part of the medical decisions of your baby. I recommended you deny Synagis an immunoglobulin its basically human plasma and mouse plasma. Get informed on every medication and what are the ingredients!

Go to the manager of the unit. If it is an off shift, talk to the charge nurse and let her know you are not happy being left out of the conversations. Where are you?
