This question is about 14 month old baby no longer eating or drinking after MMR vaccine
To understand my question here on Meta, I suggest reading my answer to the OP, and the ensuing comments below it. I won't repeat all of that here.
@Erica, I'm not suggesting the OP google the problem. In my answer, I stated a fact that I didn't think needed substantiation. My answer focused on assisting the OP in taking an active approach in building a collaborative relationship with her baby's doctor, or looking for a doctor with a more collaborative approach. Because it seems to me that when one leaves the doctor's office, one should ideally leave with less anxiety than one had when one came in, and if that's not working, maybe the doctor is not a good fit -- or maybe one is not clearly communicating the sort of partnership one is looking for.
I think this is the main thing that can be contributed to this OP. Obviously, we can't tell, sight unseen, whether the baby is having a dangerous reaction to the vaccine, and therefore not only would it be irresponsible to try to reassure the mother, but it would also be as ineffective as the two doctors' attempts were.
I mentioned a fact in my answer, as an example of something I suggest that a doctor should inform a mother about.
That's the background for my meta question.
Now, my question: If someone thinks an answer would be strengthened by including a link, is it better to criticize the answer in a comment below the answer, or edit the question to add the link the critic is saying is needed?
I'm asking because I personally am feeling overwhelmed by criticism of my contributions.
