It is very hard to understand Dr. Askar, English is a second language.
That being said, 5 years ago I took my daughter to him. I kept all my appointments and was very concerned about her weight. She was being strictly breast fed but, at her 2 month appt. she was still her birth weight!! I was told by his NP that I should just keep breast feeding and she'd be fine. 2 weeks later she was in the hospital. The ER docs were VERY upset with me and even thought about pressing charges. (until they saw the doc's files on us...) She was admitted with almost zero thigh fat meaning she was emaciated so far brain damage was next. Dr. Askar thought maybe it was her pyloric valve and put her on a 6 hour fast so a test could be taken!! The first test was unable to been seen so the fast was going to continue. I was done!
I began to defy his orders and feed her bottle formula. I was ready to rip out her IV's and take her home!! A sweet nurse confided in me that this was not a good choice for a doctor and as long as I keep feeding her from a bottle I should stay until regular discharge so as to avoid a conflict with my insurance paying the bill.
She gained 2 lbs in 2 days as I gave up totally on breastfeeding and gave the bottle. We were released as she was no longer a failure to thrive. What a mess!
You may want to think twice about this practice...
