    Default Constantly in the wars

    DS is 16 months and is always in the wars. He is full on, go go go from morning til night and seems to be constantly falling over, bumping his head, running into things, climbing up things and having to be rescued etc. our house is relatively child proofed but nothing seems safe with him.

    He just fell down some stairs (that he is allowed to climb, to get to his outdoor play equipment). I was right next to him but still couldn't stop him in time and now he has a huge egg on his head. I feel so awful. But this is normal for this age right? I feel like I need to wrap him in bubble wrap, or at least his head because I reckon he's only got about 7 brain cells left.

    My DS is the same, he's 25months old & always has bruises all over him! He chipped one of his front teeth when he was 13 months! ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1427955816.356102.jpg

    He did that one at about 15 months, I always say to hubby, imagine the dents on his skull if he had an X-ray!!

    My dd hurt her little nose (falling out of bed, luckily it's low so nothing major ). They're just that horrible combination of fearless and clumsy

    My DS was like that too at that age. He was constantly bumping his head, falling off things, tripping over etc. I was genuinely worried that he would cause himself permanent damage. He gave me so many grey hairs. Now he's 5 and super bright and bubbly so he seems to have gotten through unscathed. The one upside is that he's very tough and scrapes and bumps really don't bother him at all, probably because he's been desensitised to pain after his accident prone toddler years.

    I was always in the wars as a kid and it's because I had many ear infections which affected my balance.

    Ds is 18 months and covered in scrapes and bruises. He is very adventurous which scares the heck out of me! His latest is climbing on his table to he can reach the kitchen bench, he has fallen off twice already. When we tell him no he just smiles and laughs at us. Guess its just their way of exploring and finding boundaries
