Then have your child evaluated!
We as human beings are given the gift of intuition. If something doesn’t seem right with your child, then seek a few opinions.
Aside from my styling and journalism jobs, I am also a Parenting Expert/Mentor. I see many parents who sometimes ask me, “Do you think our child has any issues, or are their any red flags that we should look out for?”
My advice varies, first and foremost speaking with your pediatrician is the first step. Afterwards depending on the situation, I have referred parents to see ophthalmologists, ENT’s, Occupational/Physical therapists, as well as Behavioral therapists to obtain more information.
I can relate on a personal level, for our daughter was born what her pediatrian diagnosed her with was Torticollis (head tilt).
My husband and I didn’t agree with the diagnosis, for over time for she had other issues with mobility and feeding difficulties.
It wasn’t until we saw an Occupational and Physical therapist who diagnosed her with Strabismus (lazy eye syndrome). That explained it all!
She underwent eye surgery and all of her issues resolved along with Physical and Occupational therapies.
The message and advise I have for parents is to be your own advocate! If something does not seem right, then go for an evaluation.
Early intervention works wonders, and if you are not satisfied with the answers you get then seek another opinion or more!
Take it from a Mom who has been there, and continues to be an advocate!
