I feel like my daughter needs to go to the doctor and her father is refusing to take her: What can I do?

I have a question for you, ladies. I need advice on what to do. Okay, so my daughter is about five months old. She is with her father right now until court next month. I have joint legal custody and visitation. She has a HORRIBLE cold. I’m very scared and feel helpless right now. He doesn’t want to take her to the doctor. She is already immune-compromised due to a very bad illness when she was very little. And she is a preemie, so that contributes to the immune-compromised. She needs to go to the doctor, but her father won’t take her. What should I do ?? I’m so scared because when she had her illness a few months back, she was on a breathing tube for several days. As I said, I have joint legal custody so I can call the doctor and make the appointment, but I can’t take her because I only have visitation. What should I do? I’m very worried. Please give me advice mommas

Our Dr has a 24 nurse line. They didn’t want to see my infant for chest congestion and cough unless he had trouble breathing or started to run a fever. Maybe see if yours offers one and call them?

What you should do first is call the police & have a welfare check done on your child, tell them the situation. Then you should call cps next. Good luck.

To be honest he probably did take her to the doctor and they don’t give meds to babies that young and probably was told what to do to make baby comfortable and ride out the cold.

Take her anyway i would just sit atound do something

Welfare check. Call cps local dhs call the police station and talk to an officer about it. Joint legal custody means you both have rights to medical! Not just him.
