Has anyone in IL refused the newborn screening? The state sent me a letter saying I had to get the screening done. In the pamphlet it says all babies must be screened unless it's against the parents' "religious beliefs and practices". Is this more difficult than refusing vaccinations? I haven't had any problems with that as of yet, and my DD is nearly 4 years old. My son is 3 months old and since I had a unassisted birth, I didn't do the screening. He has had well baby visits. I called his doctor and they said we could just talk about it at his 4 month appointment. I asked in the UC board, but didn't get any responses from IL. Anyone with experience want to chime in? Thanks!
