I just got back from Anthony's appt and they did the shots but did not draw blood or do a finger prick to test for lead and iron.My sister and friend go to the same pedi and both had this test done.Should I call and ask?!
I don't see how the doctor could "forget" this step at the 12mo checkup,right
We had our 12 mo appt yesterday and they didn't do it either. I've heard it's really only done if you live in an older home. But, you could still call and just double check with them for piece of mind. Can't hurt. They tested Taylor's Iron/hemoglobin's at her 9 mo appt. Did they maybe do that test then for you guys?
