    It might not be the right idea but I was thinking about how my MIL holds her when she's on the phone, walking around the house clutching onto her which my husband always says not to as she like to be down rolling around...

    This is me doing the same (gently!),. She's got these long fake fingernails and I think she's held her too tightly without realising..

    So I've decided not to go to doc but if it happens again I will be there in an instant.. I hate when she does that, I wish she would just focus on the baby :-(

    I'd still be going to the doctors to make sure there was no underlying cause that makes your daughter more susceptible to bruising, but that's just me.......
    Yeah you might be right..

    I would imagine to leave bruising like that the baby would scream. I would see a doctor asap.

    I'd be going to the doctor as well. I'm not one to run to the doctor for anything but I think bruises that dark ought to be looked at, even if it's nothing it won't hurt to be sure.

    I've phoned my GP and with the practise nurse she's advised to bring her right in if there's a recurrence. They've faded a lot. I'll be keeping a close eye on her,

    I've just looked at your pics again. I would have to say that these are much darker than regular bruises caused by holding a child, even with long nails. I wild maybe just go to the dr just to check. I have pretty long nails and often scratch or pinch but it's never left any type of mark like this. I hope everything is ok.

    I would also go to the doctor... Unexplained bruising scares me as I know there can be nasty underlying causes.

    I would also go to dr. God knows I carry my kids around like a sack of potatoes and they don't have any bruising.
