if it's night time call in the morning if its day call and make an appointment. a Pedi should have appointment or set days for walk-ins. My Pedi is the top specialts in my area. I could call on a tuesday and have an appointment for thursday no problem he has hundreds of patients and only a 10 room office (maybe less) he also has on call phone number where you can call anytime and they will page the doctor to call you back any hour. So i don't she how a regular pedi has no appointments available for months

Yeah, Pediasure is CRAZY expensive. If your child really ends up needing it though, OP, it does come on WIC, if you are a part of that.

DD's pedi is amazing, but they don't accept walk-ins. Ever. You HAVE to make an appointment. You can make a same day appointment, but for some reason, they don't accept walk-ins. :roll:
Just saying, not all offices are the same.

you know kid don't acutally need that stuff ( im not trying to argue just say)



MY DD has this thing where she will only eat what she pick/or just snack for a week, then the next she will eat everytthing and anything i give to her. She doesn't eat meals all the time just when she feel like it. As long as they are gaining weight fine and you are offering all 5 food groups they should be fine ( even if they don't get all five groups in a day)

Pediasure is full of crap, it's just extra calories and some added vitamins, I was told by WIC that it has the exact same everything in it as Carnation instant breakfast made with whole milk instead of skim. My son was prescribed it for not gaining weight but I wouldn't have given it to him otherwise, just read the back of the bottle and see all the junk in it. Actually here you go:

Towards the end of his weight gain fiasco I just started making him smooties with high calorie things in it like peanut butter, almond butter, whole milk yogurt, greek yogurt, cottage cheese, avocado and I would blend it up with banana, strawberries, apple juice, pineapple juice (not all of those, a combination of different things that sounded good or I had on hand at the time).

We are a military family, and it's the same for us. If you want an appointment, you better make it a month in advance.

YOu have to get a script from the dr for them to cover it, WIC here wouldn't accept one from my son's ped, and required one from his gastro. At one point we had run out and the Gastro hadn't faxed over a new script so the nutrionist told me the info about the Carnation instant breakfast because it is so much cheaper she also gave me a bunch of recipes for high calorie smoothies.

I know, that's why I said if the child really needed it. It isn't covered here either unless it's by script. Hell, half of the shit here isn't covered unless it's by script. Our WIC sucks.

That really crappy. I mean ya i make my milestone checkup in advance by two-three months. however if they get sick and i feel they need to be checked out i can just call and have an appointment in two days. My pedi also hate the walk in clinics around here because they are pill happy (prescibes anything and everything) he knows whether they need something or not.
