How do you explain to a non mother/parent that their gut instinct is NOT the same thing as a mother's instinct?

Do you feel that they are different or one in the same?

I think depending on the person it can be just as strong. I've always had some very sting instincts and I could yell you some stories that would beat out mothers intuition.

I think it's about the same except I am more in tune to my own child because I know what there "normal" is.

I'm a mother of 2 adoptive kids both adopted at around 7 yrs old. I'd say they are the same thing. I take offense to that.

Instinct is instinct. You can put whatever name on it you want (mother, father, womans, nurse, whatever) an instinct is an instinct, we all have them.

You added something I didn't, and nor did I infer. I never stated that only "birth" mothers have this. I just said mothers. I feel that the moment you become a mother in any form, you get this mother's intuition. No need to take offense to something that was never implied to begin with.
