Mum Embarrassed After Rushing Baby To Hospital With 'Hole' In Mouth Only To Find It Was A Sticker

A concerned mum rushed her baby to hospital after finding a 'hole in the roof of his mouth' only to be left mortified when a nurse pointed out it was actually a sticker.

Becky Stiles, from Essex, was left 'holding back the tears' after spotting what she thought was a hole in the roof of her son Harvey's mouth.

The 24-year-old had laid the 10-month-old down to change his nappy when she saw a dark-coloured circle on the roof of his mouth and began to panic.

She said: "I tried to touch it but he just screamed at me, so I made his dad rush over and see it.

"I'm shaking, sweating and holding back the tears. We put a torch on it and his dad said, 'What the hell is that?'"

A terrified Becky rang her mum for advice who told her to ring 111, however, her dad suggested she take the youngster straight to A&E.

When she arrived at the hospital she explained the situation to reception and it was suggested that little Harvery immediately see a specialist.

But after having a quick check over from a nurse, Becky was made aware of her embarrassing mistake.

Becky said: "One nurse said let me just get my pen torch and have a look.

"After about 30 seconds of looking she said, 'That's a sticker'. Me being an idiot told her, 'No look that's a hole'.

"She put her finger in his mouth and hooked it out. I laughed, was shaking and so embarrassed."

Although Becky was left red-faced by the incident she said it did give the medical staff a laugh, and even Harvey was laughing along by the end of it all.

She continued: "Harvey found it funny too! I told her I felt like a right prat, and that if Covid wasn't a thing I would hug her.

"She replied with, 'Well I've never fixed a cleft palate at A&E doors before'.

"We all carried on laughing as we made the walk of shame back to the car.

And the embarrassment wasn't over for Becky just yet, as once she was back in her car she had to break the news to both sides of Harvey's family that the 'hole' was actually just a sticker.

She said: "In the car I had to swallow my pride even more and make all the phone calls again to let everyone know Harvey didn't in fact have a hole in his mouth.

"He had taken a liking to stickers."
