Every mom gets tons of advice, but Kristen Taekman says that you already know what to do.

Kristen says, "I keep saying the same thing. It's that mommy instinct, when you think there is something wrong with your child and you get one opinion from a doctor — get a second opinion. Don't sit there and think that because one doctor said it was fine, that everything really is okay. When you have that feeling that something is going on, go get it checked out. I had a super lax pediatrician with my daughter who didn't think there was anything wrong, but there was."
