    I agree with everyone else, don't feel bad. It's so hard when they can't tell you what is wrong.

    Just sending massive hugs your way. The way you feel right now is proof you aren't a terrible mum! How were you supposed to know it was the major, if she was generally ok? Be kind to yourself.

    Thanks so much ladies!! As a kid I had a fractured wrist for a few days before my mum took me to get it checked, but my DD is just so young!

    It's really hard to believe she's actually got a fractured collarbone because she is acting so normally. A girlfriends little boy actually fractured his collarbone a month or so ago and I was so shocked when she said it didn't really bother him. They're such strong little things.

    I'm still waiting for the call from the specialist to see how much I need to limit her movements, but we've made up a few lots of playdoh and different sorts of sensory play things (thank you pintrest!) to play with at the table so hopefully that will keep her from tearing around the house for a little while. Will have to do a few long long pram walks as well so I can keep her occupied without risk of further falls.

    And her she is this morning, as happy as anything. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1374803817.288353.jpg
    So happy it doesn't seem to be bothering her anymore but I'm still super paranoid about her knocking it. I'll be hover mum for another month at least!

    Thanks again everyone!!

    Too cute!

    What a tough kid!

    Don't blame yourself, you did everything you could. It's hard when they can't tell us what's wrong.

    Your daughter is so cute!

    Please don't be to hard on yourself. There are plenty of us who've brushed something off only to find out it's a bit more

    I hope your daughter continues to dance happily and heals well

    My DD fractured her wrist at 14 month, I felt terrible, I also felt everyone else was judging me for being a bad mum because she wasnt even walking (she fell/was pushed off a small slide when she snuck outside to play with the big kids)

    It was a very long 3 weeks as she kept pulling off the cast! and she did BLW so i had to keep putting socks over the cast etc. lol

    But don't feel bad, these things happen. The staff at the hospital had the same reaction as yours, doubting its anything but xray just in case

    Anyway, don't feel bad. Your daughter is obviously very loved

    Oh the poor little loves! They just cope so much better with it than adults, it seems. I feel like she's coping better than me! If I hadn't seen the X-ray myself I'd have absolutely no idea it was fractured!

    Thanks so much everyone!!! I'm feeling better about it now that she's not in pain. Just trying to keep her a little less active and practically having a heart attack every time she gets too close to something or she starts walking a little to fast! It's going to be a long couple of weeks....

    My Bub had a broken arm from her birth. It was a week of me moving it and changing her clothes around it before I realized she didn't hate being changed, she was wailing in pain
    They had X-rayed it in hospital before we left but missed the break by millimeters. It healed fine though after all that, and she recovered very well. *hugs, you couldn't have known given her behavior, no one thinks you're a bad mum

    OP I could have almost written your post! My DS broke his collar bone on Boxing Day last year we initially took him to the ED to be checked over and they found nothing 5 days later after lots of tears and restless nights I took him to our GP after noticing swelling bruising and a lump on his clavicle he sent us for X-rays and it was most definitely broken poor little man I felt like the worst mum in the world for leaving it so long and putting it down to teething he spent 6 weeks in a sling until it had healed and now over 6 months later you would never know he had broken it at the time though it was horrible and I felt so guilty so I definitely know what your going through!

    Yep, to my parents.

    My little sister took a dive off their bed probably around your DDs age, result broken collarbone which took a number of days to diagnose. Worst part dad lifting her up by her arm telling her she was alright right after, apparently she was laughing.

    They certainly aren't terrible parents, accidents can happen to any of us.

    She had a sling but it was nearly impossible to get her to wear it, long term she has not had any issues with her shoulders/arms.
