my almost 22month old son dropped a can of food on his foot yesterday. his nail is blue/black and all yesterday afternoon he was limbing and walking with his toe up/on the side of his foot. last night he woke up at about 11pm crying and when i said whats wrong he pointed to his toe. (i was cuddling him on the rocker and accidently bumped that foot against his brothers crib and he started crying) so i know it hurts him.. i know broken blood vessels hurt and he seems fine today should i call the doctor or just keep watching it?

I would just watch it chances are it's not broke.... it would hurt if he bumps it again. have you given him any children's Motrin or something for pain or swelling? you may want to. but other than that I wouldn't worry more than likely it will remain bluish until the toe nail grows off on its own.
