  • My daughter is standing by herself now and is constantly falling and bumping herself. Seems like she gets a new bruise every week. I haven't heard anything about her being low on anything...

  • my son was always covered in bruises, its just the stage. They are learning to move and get around by themselves...its bound to happen. I would not worry about it.

  • My son always has bruises on his knees. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

  • make sure she has enough iron in her diet. low iron makes you bruise more easily

  • I was also wondering about this since my son has started crawling I notice he has one tiny bruise on each knee. Sounds like it's not something to worry about though.
