Nice start to the morning.

"Ok, I will keep it cold here, just have the pediatrician fax the signed letter to me before the next bottle is due."

And they can come pick up when that poor baby is puking all over the place or has stomach cramps.

Luckily no pediatrician would ever fax that signed letter.

It would have to be a prescription diet. I have never heard of one for cows milk. Ever.

We served it to him. Needless to say, he had a LOT of less-than-fun diapers today.

My bosses are more into "do whatever the parents want" because we're small and cheap, so we have to cater to their wishes.

Is this infant getting enough formula? Do they understand malnutrition and kidney damage can ultimately kill him?

I'd report to licensing and DFACS.

"Babies can't digest cow's milk as completely or easily as breast milk or formula. Cow's milk contains high concentrations of protein and minerals, which can tax your baby's immature kidneys. Cow's milk doesn't have the right amounts of iron, vitamin C, and other nutrients for infants."

FTR: DFACS does not go in taking away kids. They will meet with the parents, teach them about infant nutrition, offer financial resources if cost is the issue and monitor them as a support network. They want kids with their families, they strengthen families. It is the rare case that the parents refuse to do what is in their kids best interests. Those simply make the most noise.

Iím wondering how you know what was in the bottle, did the parent label it or tell you?

My pediatrician told me that a little bit of cows milk was fine starting at about 9 months...but that it should be in addition to formula or breast milk, not instead of.

I bet they are on WIC and ran out of formula for the month so they are giving what they can until they can afford to buy more, or get more WIC checks.

Me, too.

I thought centers/home providers on the food program were required to offer one brand of formula because of situations like this. To prevent a parent from ever having to make this choice.

We aren't on a food program. Parents provide their own food.
