Britney Spears has publicly slammed the doctors who checked over her son Sean Preston after he fell from his high chair in April (06) – for making her feel like a terrible mother.

The worried singer and her husband Kevin Federline took their baby to hospital in Los Angeles fearing he was oversleeping and appeared lethargic days after the accident.

But the precautionary trip to see a doctor left Spears feeling like she was under attack – and led to a visit from child services officials, which the singer insists was unnecessary.

Speaking on a Dateline NBC news special, which aired in America last night (15JUN06), Spears fumed, “They (doctors) acted really funny with me. It was really bizarre. I don’t want to say what they did or what they said but it was bad. It was really, really bad.

“I was just happy that my son was OK and I just wanted to get home and get outta there.”

Spears accepts that press reports about her mothering skills and photos of her making mistakes as a mum may have led to suspicions – but she feels doctors should be above reading and believing what the tabloids print.

She insisted doctors wasted a lot of people’s time by calling child services bosses and asking them to investigate Spears and Federline at their Malibu, California, home.

She added, “They felt really bad about it. They said, ‘We don’t even know why we’re here.’ They didn’t have to come. The doctor there made them come because I didn’t bring my doctor there with me.

“People, a lot of times think because you’re a celebrity that you’re taken care of more; in some situations, you get it worse.”
