At our 1-year appt, we were told about the blood test for lead (a finger prick), but opted to wait since LO already was upset over his shots for the month.
Has anyone else had this test done? Is it necessary if we know our LO hasn't been exposed to lead? (Our house was built after lead paint was banned - 1986 - and so was his childcare's house - 2015).
Just wondering how important it is we do this test. LO is going in for blood testing for allergies in a few weeks, so if possible I just want them to draw enough blood for both at that time so we don't have to go in twice.
Thoughts? I'm all about following the recommended schedule, just not sure if this test is necessary given our situation. Thanks!
