Do you use one?
I have yet to meet one I love. Had one I really liked in Texas but in Florida nothing. I found one guy who isnt the worst ( thats the best I can say about him). But I really feel like I get little to nothing from them. They only prescribe meds that dont really work for my son ( homeopathy has healed his allergies) and give advice I very much disagree with. So all i need one for is forms for school?
and here's my latest beef. yesterday i took my 3 year old and 1 month old for check ups ( again why?) and i think they are doing great. DS grew a few inches and gain about three lbs in a year and DD dont grow in height but gain over 3 lbs in her first month ( just like her brother). so i'm very happy but the ped say basically "you make really short fat kids!"
according to his "charts" the should be taller and thinner. well guess what i am short and though not over weight very curvy and his dad is average to shorter for a man and heavy- so what are our kids supposed to look like?!?
We both have slower metabolisms so we have to eat healthy and be mindful of treats but my son eats mostly fruit, grains, meat (though i'm mostly vegan) and a very little dairy. DD eats only mommys milk. DS cant ever stop running, dancing, playing so he's super strong- like shockingly so. i am so proud of how healthy they are so who gives a **** if we are a short stocky family!?
ok thats my rant
anyone else deal with this stuff?
