lots of studies: The practice is commonplace in the US where it has a long term benefit reducing some of the transient anemia of infancy. She is entitled to her opinion & you chose a doc based on your trust in their decisions. Maybe you should interview/consider another. This is only one of many issues you should trust your doc to work you through.
