After Baby Andrei was taken to ER for a fever an intern who apparantly took issue with their parenting choices reported his family to the ACS and their baby was taken from them because they refused to provide him formula (he was breastfed) and iron supplements (they added naturally iron rich foods instead).
Now despite the fact they had seen a family doctor and shown his iron levels went up and his development was normal the ACS took him anyway claiming they had not followed the ER doctors prescription.
To see the whole thing follow this link, this family is in desperate need of help to get their child back. It is just unbelievable to me that a healthy baby can be taken because a doctor takes issue with your feeding choices.
The 3rd percentile is small, but some babies are just smaller. My Maxx is 2 and a half and has never gone over the 10th percentile for his weights. I cant believe a court can take a baby away this easily when these people were obviously doing everything right. There has got to be more to this story then people know.
It makes me worried to have another baby since we do not eat meat!! but I know my dr thinks its Great and just had me speak to a nutrionist to make sure we knew other ways to get proten! and They were great and tellign us That we were doing good!!
That just makes me mad!!
