“With six kids, we’ve had plenty of bumps and bruises,” says Susan Besser, MD, a mom of six grown children, a grandmom of two, a family physician, and the medical director of Doctors Express-Memphis, in Tennessee. “When my toddlers fell, I was careful how I reacted. If I panicked and made a big deal out of it, they would too. But on the other hand, if I was calm, they’d likely stay calm too. If you look at your toddler and say, ‘Oopsie!’ he will likely look at you like you’ve lost your mind and go right back to playing.

“For toddlers’ cuts and scrapes that break the skin, I find Band-Aid bandages are a mom’s best friend.

Product Band Aid“Of course, if your toddler falls and there’s a stunned silence followed by that long inhale and then the piercing scream, then you do what you have to do to make it all better.”

You can buy Band-Aid bandages at variety stores for around $3 a box. Visit Band-Aid.com for more information.
