Re: did your 12 mo old have a lead test?

I don't recall with my older two. I think that they typically just check it when they check for anemia. My dr talked to us about it with my youngest (11months) and we had his checked......good thing too, because he is HIGH!!! Has a lead level of 27 (there are 6 levels of lead poisoning and he's in the 4th tier). So we are doing all the environmental testing, nurse visits, etc. Hopefully the reports come back soon from the environmental testing so we can get some idea of where it might be coming from. We had myself, and the two big kids tested and we were all well within the normal range (1-2). So we're kinda at a loss as to how he is being exposed
I would definitely say, get tested to be on the safe side.
