Stupid Questions We Asked the Pediatrician

By marinka |

Yeah, I know there’s no such thing as a stupid question. But seriously, does anyone really believe that? Or do we think that it’s one of those sayings that gets tossed around like “Santa knows if you’ve been good or bad”? Because I know that I’ve asked plenty of stupid questions. Of my parents, in school, in college, and I didn’t intend to break my streak once I became a mom.

Once I called my pediatrician because my daughter was yawning a lot. Yes, yawning. I’m not sure what was going through my mind and what yawn-infested disease I worried she was battling, but I remember telling the receptionist that picked up the phone that my daughter had yawned at least 8 times in the past twenty minutes and that I’d let her know if the yawning increased.


Stupid question.

And when I asked some bloggers if they’d ever asked their pediatrician a stupid question, I got a resounding yes!

Click through to see some of the questions that bloggers asked their pediatricians. Fortunately, I’m in excellent company!
