I'd have the test and get some drops it wont hurt

It is super that you have picked this up and are now working to treat it. You caught it early (baby not even walking yet) and this will now result in you getting treated for low vit D as well as baby.
It must all seem overwhelming right now.
Best of luck with everything - please let us know how it goes when you have time. And congratulations again for listening to those Mama instincts and fighting for your little one. You rock!
ETA: good on your GP too. We need more docs who listen to parents' instincts!
Thank you, I do feel so responsible, and angry. We're going to speak to a lawyer, she would have been left till she had a massive sez
uire or worse, she had bad apneas awhile back to, no one listened,

Do ask them about the level of alcohol in the drops you have - NICE say *no* alcohol containing medication for children under 5, due to the potential impact on their developing systems of the substance, so it would be worth querying - there are definately no alcohol ones because we had them years back for the smalls... sorbitol is a definate improvement on the other artificial sweeteners of the drops of the past though you may need to watch her for additional bowel movements (as its a laxative) and ask about nutritional support for her (well, you, as extra bf should do it really) as it can also speed the transit of all nutrition.
JRI are really good when it comes to BF though - you should be able to access the bf support clinic for info on how it may affect the absorpsion from bm if at all :-)
so far no one can tell me how much is safe for me plus nursing, I'll try them
