They're just trying to do their job.

Always IGNORE the ladies at WIC. Especially if the doctor hasn't said anything. A two year old still has some baby fat. DD has done most of her slimming out after she turned 3.



They tell me I need to cut her juice back to one glass a day when I even said the ONLY time we give her two-three glasses is when she is constipated. DD has chronic constipation, but is otherwise completely healthy.

oh i understand that. in Iowa, you go into one room and they ask you a bunch of questions, then you go see A social worker in another room, and she ask all the same questions, then a lady from VNA comes and asks ALL the Questons AGAIN.



When i got WIC, i appreciate it.. but it was one hell of a headache.

Yes but their advice should never be substituted for a doctors, if a doctor is concerned about a child's weight they will say something. I never ignore them to be rude, I just never trust their advice because they have always been wrong. And their advice often contraindicates what I have learned in Nursing school.

Noone said their advice should be substituted for a doctors :?

They are dieticians and don't pretend to be doctors.

It's funny that you say that your nursing school disagree's with RD guidelines.

They don't :wink:

Our WIC also measures and weighs different then out pedis and I've talked to them about it lol. They just said its the way things are set up, so I just kind of ignore it and go by what WIC says.
