1 Bump

Does you LO get a lot of bumps and bruses?

My 19 month old has so many bumps and bruses on him. He is such a little dare devil! Always jumping off the couch and climbing on everything. I'm afraid people are gonna look and see his bruses and think that they are from me :( Is your toddler like this too?

  • Yes... tons. I have 2 little boys who are 2 and 4... I have just learned to live with the fact that they are always going to be covered in bumps, bruises, and scrapes. They are both little dare devils like your little ones.

  • AT least he's trying things, My son gets a strong breeze and crys and needs a bandaid. His father is also a "be careful" Dad. that's the only thing that comes out of his mouth so my son won't try anything..arg..!!

  • yes! My 18 month old son has all kinds of bruises but he plays so hard. Its normal for a toddler to get bruises, no worries.

  • I have two boys (both past toddler age). DS1 is constantly getting hurt. scraps and bruises all over that kid. I've never worried about CPS or anything though because all anyone has to do is spend 10 minutes with him and they'll know why he has so many owies. He's 5.5

    DS2 is just now becoming more daring. He's 4.5

  • You would think he would the way my son climbs up, jumps/rolls off, bumps into, knocks over, etc. (lol) but luckily he doesn't seem to bruise very easily! I'm constantly amazed at the things my little boy can withstand. Drives me crazy!

  • YES! My 2 1/2 yr old DD legs are nothing but black and blue! She is the biggest dare devil, always jumping off of things!!
