Broken leg

My 8 month old broke his leg yesterday, it does not hurt him he didnt even cry when he did it. We didnt even notice until this morning cuz he would not put weight on hie foot. but now he is annoyed cuz he can not get down in the floor and crawl and play because he whole leg is in a cast. Now anyone who has been threw this what can I do to keep my baby confortable, since he has been moving around more he does not like to be in his swing or chair much. I need ideas to help him not bashing about my baby breaking his leg, Please!

He did break it by an accident!

  • he's going to get used to finding new ways to play while wearing the cast. it's going to heal quickly too. don't worry....babies are very adaptable!

  • How does a 8 month old break his leg? Not bashing, just curious.

    Sit in the floor and play with him.

  • My sister broke her leg when she was 8 months. I don't know what you can do, but it will pass quickly and I'm sure he won't even remember it. Don't worry about it!

  • He was going down the slide with his sister and his leg twisted a little and he actually broke only one bone not both

  • Sounds like an accident if it was while playing on a slide
