BabySugar's Band-Aid Trick For Injured Tots

A bump here and bruise there can quickly add up to a lil one covered head to toe in Band-Aids. Even when there is nothing wrong, wee ones have a way of inventing boo boos just to have another bandage strategically placed on their body. But when tots have an actual need for a wound dressing, the mere sight of a first-aid kit can send them running for cover.

Offering an injured child his choice of bandages may be all that is needed to cool a situation down. Though bandage makers may have specific designs in mind for different wounds, allowing your tot to pick out the bandage he wants can take the edge off everyone involved. Who cares if that knuckle bandage ends up on his face, at least he'll have a smile on while you are applying it! And just remember, if one Band-Aid is good, two is always better.
