The doctor said she does not believe the baby is at risk at the moment.
The judge also ordered both Cody and Jodie to submit to drug tests before the next hearing.

Jodie Sweetin is under emergency investigation by an Orange County, Calif., family court for substance abuse, PEOPLE reports. Cody Herpin’s lawyer released the following statement: “It’s primarily alcohol [abuse] but there’s also concern regarding methamphetamines.”
The ruling came after Sweetin’s estranged husband accused her of being an unfit mother. Herpin is accusing the actress of once driving intoxicated with their daughter in the car, TMZ reports.
The Full House star filed for legal separation from Herpin on Nov. 19, seeking joint custody of their 8-month-old daughter, Zoie. Papers filed by the 26-year-old star revealed the couple faced serious financial problems. Herpin, 31, responded with his own filing on Dec. 4, seeking sole custody of their daughter.
Jodie has since left the couple’s home with baby Zoie and moved in with her parents.
Sweetin is a recovering meth addict and has publicly acknowledged her addiction to the drug.
