Cuts and Scrapes
Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: I always keep a few washcloths on hand that are a dark color, such as maroon or navy. When a child is bleeding, using this washcloth will help to camouflage the blood and assuage their fears.
When my kids were toddlers, I explained to them that bleeding is how our body cleans out wounds. It helps remove the dirt and germs from our cuts. Then I explained that the scab is your own natural bandage.
