My 9 month old daughter just came back from the doctors and

My 9 month old daughter just came back from the doctors and I am told that she is short on iron and calcium?I have the doctors report attached, and they have recommended some thing to administer orally. I am in China and would like a second opinion on the blood test that was also done? The other test involved my daughter placing her feet on a machine that gave a Tscore and Zscore reading? She has her 3 month old score also attached and I need to understand what is being prescribed and if there is any need to get a second opinion? She has 8 teeth already - and has been on enfamil infant since birth. Her regular diet is one egg yolk with hot water. Congee 30-40ml. 700ml of enfamil. She has 1/3 of an apple a day. 4 times a week she will consume 40 Ml's of Gerber rice cereal dha & probiotic. Attached are the contents. I will immediately have her diet changed to one meal a day at least of the Gerber formula.

Sorry for my English that is not my native language, but I

Hi. Sorry for my English that is not my native language, but I try hard.I have concerns about my son. And try to describe all the points that I find important.He is two years and seven months old. He haven't any serious illness or diseases.Most of the time he communicates withhis mom (she's on maternity leave) and me when I'm not at work. At least once a week we see our friends with kids and relatives. He goes outside daily for several hours. It may be a playground or just for a walk. We do not watch TV at all. But son watches some YouTube channels for kids and kids' animation series like Callous or Peppa Pig for about an hour a day.Back when he was under two, he started to say several words like ‘Mama', ‘Give…', several simple nouns, ‘Woof', ‘Meow', tied to pronounce his Name (it's Yan), named several letters, etc. Pointing his ears, nose, eyes, teeth, showing 2 fingers when was asked about his age. But the more we (me and my wife) asked him to show or say something the more bored he seemed and gradually stopped saying anything understandable. At some point we've noticed he started avoiding eye contact not to provoke us to ask again.Also, we stopped giving him baby bottle and attempted to accustom him to potty-chair with no success.We thought that we might had pushed too much and let him go by almost stopping asking him a thing, and stopped trying potty.For some time he seemed to be ignoring our requests, trying to run away and stopped looking into eyes. At the same moment he fell in love with swings. We couldn't pass by any on our way. It became the main activity when he was out. But accepted no carousel of any kind.When he was two years old we faced with hysterical behavior. Now it happens very rarely.We tried to attend classes for early childhood development but he was mostly busy with own stuff not willing to participate general activities and was very happy when class is over.Then we moved to another apartment which as we think he accepted well enough (all described was even before our moving).Now we almost recovered the eye contact. It's not always easy to get his attention but when we captured it he points face and body parts again. He gives handshake and hifive but never waves ‘Bye'. He never nods to show that he agrees.Now just he says a lot of gibberish stuff. More and more. Sometimes it sounds like 2-3 words sentence like ‘Bai-gu-gu', ‘Bai-gu-dee', ‘Ai-la-la', ‘Oi-go-go' in different combinations and it seems like he is trying to explain something or complain aloud. He points his finger when he wants something but doesn't say ‘give…' He brings stuff that he broke asking to fix, or some boxes or jars to open (silently). Understands a lot. He can accomplish simple requests like go get something, throw garbage into the trashcan, helps to take off/on his clothes. Brings mama's clothes. When asking him to say something he used to know or we know he knows he smiles or tries to kiss (like wants to distract).He smiles if he sees you smile, loves hugs and kisses. He is very bound to his mother upsets when she goes out or even bathroom. Earlier he was afraid of crowded places. But now visiting a supermarket or café is not a problem he just ignores all the strangers. He is not into playing with other kids. But he does not avoid them and can play side by side with them.He extremely likes to jump but only inside. He can start jumping right after he woke up. But especially on the bed or while watching YouTube. Also he demonstrate happiness with jumping when you give him something or mother returns home. But he always reacts while jumping, if you give him something, or attract his attention.All of his wishes he expresses via gestures. For example if he wants us to turn on YouTube he pushes me to PC and then put my hand on keyboard.Likes to spin especially on open space like large hall.Gets very angry and cries when we turn off YouTube or do something against his will, but not hysterical.Doesn't like loud noises like vacuum cleaner or hair dryer but he is not shout or cry he just ties to stay away.Latest strange thing we concerned about is he started hiding his toys (cars, pencils…) under the pillows, blankets, under his mom when she's sitting, into any gap in furniture. But he doesn't mind when we remove toys from there.Likes to play with water. Likes putting toy cars into the lines making train. Sometimes sorts Lego parts by color but also plays with it as normal.He eats any food. Apples, carrots, soups…Should we be concerned about my Son's behavior in connection with autism?What should we pay attention to?And what could be the reasons that he refuses to/can't talk normally?Thank you, Pavlo

My wife believed our 16 month old daughter might have

My wife believed our 16 month old daughter might have swallowed something. She is acting really strange and has even vomited shortly after we gave her water. She was making like a gagging sound a bit and then after she drank some water she puked a little bit. Ever since then she has been drooling a bit but very quiet and now she is sleeping on my wife.

My Dr never talks to me about when to call her or when Im

my Dr never talks to me about when Im Supposed to call her or when Im supposed to go to the hospital when my kids are sick. It seems like people always say I need to take my kids to the Dr but then I go and nothing happens and I feel like I'm just waisting money and time. So when do I call the Dr and when do I go to the hospital? My 16 month old is sick it started a few days ago with runny nose, cough and sneezing. The mucus is clear and thin like water. Then the other night he was retracting when he was sleeping. He had subcostal and suprasternal retractions. He got a little restless to so I put the shower on and he coughed some stuff out and was able to sleep better. I called my Dr the next morning to tell her that he had some trouble breathing but that at the moment he seemed OK but he was still retracting. They told me not to go in and to just watch him. At lunchtime he was increased work of breathing when he was trying to eat and he was retracting alot so I called my Dr back but she never returned my call. A few hours later my son developed a fever of around 102.5 so I cooled him off and called my Dr but she hasn't returned my call. His fever is lower around 100.0 now but he is restless and still retracting and has nasal flaring. He still has a lot of mucus too. His lungs sound clear or clear when he coughs. And his o2 SAT is 91-93%.so I feel like he is not In an urgent state where he needs to go to the er but at the same time I feel like a little oxygen could help. But the hospital is 20 mi. Away and it's the middle of the night with 2 feet of snow on the ground. Is it worth going to the er or should I just wait and call my Dr again In The morning. Or is my son fine. Kids get sick and I just need to wait it out.
