    Default When did you first see baby's blood?

    Aside from the little heel pricks, as in when did they first injure themselves resulting in blood?

    Ds is almost 10 months and this morning fell (again) and knocked his face, only to have blood in his mouth - I think he bit his tongue

    Only little, and I know there will be many more scrapes & bruises to come so it got me thinking...

    When did you first see your child's blood??

    The first time I saw my DS was about 9 months. He was crawling on the tiles and slipped and bit his tongue. Oh it broke my heart. He is now 14 months old and we have had a couple of split lips and just last week he broke his collarbone. Unfortunately it all comes with them walking, climbing and exploring. I think it hurts us more then it hurts them

    DD - a few hours old, she scratched her face and made her ear lobe bleed.

    DS - just after 1, recently actually, learning to walk incident, he tripped smacked his face on a foot stool and put his bottom teeth into his top gum.

    DD1 was 6 months old. She had just started walking a week earlier and tripped on a toy. Her two little teeth went into her lips and there was so much blood . I cleaned her up and then handed her to DH for cuddles before bed and I went and cried in my room for a bit over it! lol I was very sleep deprived, but there was so much blood!

    DD2... I can't remember if she has ever been hurt or bled, so I'm pretty sure she hasn't. She is so different to DD1 and never hurts herself by running around! She got a black eye recently from another kid running into her, and that made me feel terrible every time I looked at her poor little eye because it looked so bad, but she didn't even cry at the time so I think it looked worse than it was.

    Oh, just realised... this was when I first saw DD1's too lol. She was a week old and I was breastfeeding and her ear started pooling with blood. I screamed out to DH freaking out. He ran in, grabbed her and cleaned out the blood... where we saw the tiny little scratch mark just inside her ear. ooops. First baby... I thought she was bleeding from her brain or something horrible and was freaking out. DH apparently says he knew it would be only a scratch somewhere haha.

    Seriously though... how can that much blood come from a tiny scratch! lol

    DD1 - 6months old. I was trimming her fingernails with baby clippers and I somehow ended up cutting her skin.. it bled, she cried and I felt bad for days because she had this little scab mark.

    DD2 - oh, about 4hrs old, her big sister (again with the damn fingernails!) scratched her when holding her.

    At 2 she fell on her face and 2 teeth punctured all the way through her lip and she bit her tongue and bumped her nose in the process. The worst part is, I wasn't there and it took nearly half an hour to get to her

    DD1 was probably 4-6 weeks old when I was cutting her fingernails, and cut one a little too close. A little drop of blood made me feel so guilty.

    Actually, scratch that - a few days old her face was covered in self-inflicted scratches. Her little finger nails were so sharp they drew blood. I put socks on her hands for weeks to protect her face.

    DD1 was about 11 months, she fell off the change table and bit her tongue.
    DD2 was about 10 months, she fell face first on the tiles and put her teeth through her lip.
