Re: Dumb/uneducated things your dr has said

Our OLD DR:

*DD was 6months - "STop BFing now, its the time to start using formula" (WTF)

*Same appointment as above - "You WILL put them in cribs tonight, if they cry they are playing not sad" (wtf)

*The day I had DD & was still nursing DS "You cannot do that here, you'll kill your DD with toddler milk" (wtf)

*Leading up to DDs delivery, DS still nursing "Your DD will be born too small since your DS is taking all her food" (wtf)

*Also - "You are not allowed to have your kids in your bed, they will never leave" (right lady)

Re: Dumb/uneducated things your dr has said

I don't have any personally, but my sister just took her dd in for her 1 month appt and the doctor gave her a can of formula and told her that dd needs to know that there is something else other than mom's milk. I was shocked and couldn't believe my sister was dumb enough to believe it.

And I don't buy the whole 'kids died from the chicken pox' bit either. DS isn't going to get that vax because I truly feel it is unnecessary, but I don't think my doctor will give me any flak for it. He's cool like that.
Sorry it's a hot issue for me. I figured that's what you meant, just wanted to clarify... You know, for the lurkers & such.

Re: Dumb/uneducated things your dr has said

My kids' pediatrician has told me before that my DS's rashes were caused by cloth diapers (which I ignored of course), and he also told me to limit how much I nurse my DS cuz he wouldn't eat solids if I nursed too much which would keep him from getting the nutrition he needed, which I did for awhile and DS lost some of his pudge. I now ignore my kids' dr. and follow my gut all the time. I will not let him convince me of dumb things that won't benefit my kids at all. LOL!

Lol, really though! She did say she was going to call me that night to make sure they were in their beds.

I said 1) They dont have beds, we have a fmaily bed 2) You dont have kids 3) I AM RAISING MY KIDS, not you 4) I left my parents bed as will my kids

Never went back!

Re: Dumb/uneducated things your dr has said

One dr has told me that my non vaxxed kiddos are going to get other children sick and cause major outbreaks of all these terrible viruses. mmmhmmm. Yeah, ok. Freaking military drs, you get what you pay for, I'm not kidding. I don't even bother going anymore.
