Why would you tell your pediatrician ...
You know - there has been something odd about my son. I just could not put my finger on it - My husband and I have been talking to our pediatrician for 12 months. She just keeps telling us - he's 2 - its normal. My mother keeps saying he talks - I have heard 7 different words and one of those was last night - he will be 2 on tomorrow.
The parts they don't know are things I never knew I needed to tell my pediatrician - he bumps into something and gets a bruise the size of 3 adults hands and only cries for 10 seconds. Its 80 degrees outside and he rolls and rolls in his comforter 6 or 7 layers deep. He screams in fear or pain when he gets near a sprinkler or the wind gusts against his face or you put a cute little hat on him. On the other hand he loves the shower, he walks in and out and just feels the water hitting him. He "talks" into the fan while it blows in his face. He loves his new beanie hat.
How can we let other parents know that some of these things need to be discussed with their pediatrician? We just thought it was him being quirky.
