This mum’s forceful response to lax doctors is the reminder we all needed: trust your gut.
Blogger, Laura Mazza has become known for her ability to remind mums that we are not failures. She also recently shared an important message that, when it comes to our kids health, always, always trust your gut.
In her post she outlines the game of passing the blame and how her insistence on seeing a specialist helped her son tremendously.
Here’s what she had to say:
“Trust your gut.
Trust your gut!
He snored like a (little) truck and had horrible sleep. Always woke up angry [and] always fell asleep in the early afternoons.
Always emotional. Very emotional. Couldn’t control his little emotions no matter how hard we tried to help him and we were told to just try harder.
The only thing I could get him to happily eat was milkshakes, otherwise this was the world’s fussiest kid.
I was blamed by doctors. Spoken to like a hypochondriac.”
It all changed when…
Laura goes on to detail the moment things changed:
“Till one day I said to a doctor, I’m not leaving here until you give me a referral to see a specialist.
Trust your gut mama, you know your child better than anyone.”
