My 3year 7 month old DD bruises like a peach
She is black and blue

Daddy pointed out a very nasty one on her arm if she was not moving her arm around as she was
And the fact she didn't cry out at any point in the day
I would of been more worried
Its was black with a large bump

I was worried it could be somethng to worry about

 I bruise easily, and I always have, but bruising easily and that badly can also be a sign of something wrong, from a nutritional imbalance, to hemophilia.  Not trying to alarm you, but I would honestly have some sort of bloodwork done or at least discuss my concerns with a pediatrician, just to be safe.

Definitely warrants a trip to the pediatrician.

Some people bruise very easily.  Bring your concerns to the doctor.  My SS is the same way.  He can bump his arm on the couch and bruise.

I bruise easily as well. It is mainly because I have very thin and fair skin.
