Following medical advice

Hi all

Looking for advice. How does everyone handle when co-parents don’t agree on how to treat a medical issue (constipation) in a child?

Re: Following medical advice

Hi @Bonusmom2023 


Thank you for contacting us to share your concern. I can imagine how worried you and your partner must be about your stepson - to spend time in emergency only to hear his mother won’t follow doctor's orders must be frustrating, to say the least. 

How is your partner feeling about all of this? 

We’re going to send you an email to check in and see how we can support you with this situation. So, keep an eye out for it and get back to us when you have some spare time.
