    My ds hates them too. He will tolerate them (just) if he has to but would much prefer to just hold a tissue over it until the bleeding stops.

    Dd on the other hand thinks she needs a band aid for everything!

    I hated bandaids as a kid. I refused to put one on unless I absolutely had to. I think it's because they used to rip out all my hairs when I took them off.

    Mine are exactly the same, when DD was younger a band aid would fix any bump bruise or scrape, the sight of a band aid meant no more tears.

    DS not a fan at all, the other day after lots of explaining he finally let me put one on his fresh sore before getting in the sandpit, literally the second he was done playing in there, he ripped it off, even after I told him to leave it until bath time so it doesn't hurt when we take it off, he was like no, I'm taking it off now, and just ripped it off.

    My DS1 has a love hate relationship with band aids. He will ask for one if he has hurt himself, but as soon as you actually try to put it on him he loses it and won't let it near him..and works himself up into a bit of a hysterical mess.

    Then once he's over that, he tries to convince you to put it on the opposite side that's hurt (ie if its his left big toe he will try and get me to put it on the right big toe).

    I know this is an old post but can I ask for any tips on how you've dealt with this? Dd is terrified of bandaids. Even if they're on someone else she gets really anxious and obsesses about the bandaid until they take it off and throw it away. We haven't had to put one on her yet but I'm dreading the day.

    I'm sure you've probably tried this but dd1 loves the ones with characters on them? She will use a whole packet in a day feigning injury just to use them lol. So I don't buy them anymore.

    Yeah, she isn't swayed by the characters. They all seem to upset her equally.

    My 6 year old hates them too, we persuaded him to wear one the other day and he's now had an allergic reaction to it!

    I could never ever ever get DD to put on a bandaid she would have a huge meltdown. Mind you she would cry at the site of blood just as much so we couldn't win. One day I had to take her home from a park as other parents thought I was murdering her after she hurt her knee. One morning before we were about to leave for kindy she cut her finger on a tape dispenser just as we were leaving the house. I didn't even offer the bandaid as I knew that would cause a meltdown so used distraction and got her out of the door quickly. As soon as we got her to kindy she showed off her war wound to the teacher who straight away offered her the offending object (ba) and to my disbelief she said yes and wore it all day making me look like such a bad mother not giving her one in the first place. Ever since she has been fine and obviously at the time felt ok taking one off the teacher as she had seen other kids have one. Sorry this answer doesn't help anyone as in some ways it sorted itself but just to let you know it won't go on for ever.
