    Default 14 month old with fractured wrist

    My poor little dd had a fall today and fractured her wrist. She has a small cast covered in bandages.

    how on earth do I do this? How do I keep it clean? We did blw so she feeds herself, what do I feed her? How do I wash her and keep it dry? How so I keep her away from sand/dirt/life?

    I'm so devastated if anyone can help i'd appreciate it!

    Oh my gosh hun! All I know is to cover the cast with a plastic bag when washing her so it doesnt get wet. Thats the only thing I know about casts, sorry. Big hugs for her. Let me know if I can do anything to help you out.

    Do you think she could have all meals in muffin form for the next few weeks? Lol I was lucky to have vege muffins in the fridge for dinner

    They said I couldn't put a bag on it til she gets the fibreglass one? After 4 hours at armadale er I wasn't keen to hang around to ask questions :/

    Oh big hugs! When DS1 was about 10 months old he burned both palms on the oven (super mum that I am) and had bandages. He was a BLW child, so I understand a little bit.

    I kept a sock over the bandages, or another bandage so that could get grubby and then be replaced.

    A warm sponge/flannel wash works well.

    He would (reluctantly) let me feed him fried rice, scrambled egg, chunky soups.

    She vomited on the cast! :O have to laugh or you'll cry moment! Luckily the wait at the after hours gp wasn't too bad, we got an awesome nurse who gave us a tube bandage and a spare so I can whip it off and wash it! Hoorah!

    She is such a star. Coping so well with it all.
