Baby Pinched Fingers...

My 11 month old pinched her finger in the door. She cried of course. I comforted her until she stopped crying and then put some ice on it and gave her motrin. It was bright red before the ice but she was bending it and moving it. Should I just keep an eye on it or should I take her to the doctors? Thanks.

  • Id say just keep an eye on it. If shes bending them and not in anymore pain. If they bruise or swell really bad Id call the doctor. Just follow your mommy instinct hun
