    Bandaid HELP
    earleyml1012 posted:
    So DD has been falling a lot lately outside and scraping her knees. When the cut is new and bleeding we'll put a bandaid on it. However, most of the time they are just tiny marks that don't really need a bandaid, they just bleed a little and then are fine but the next day she feels she needs a bandaid again. How can we get her over this? I started putting cheap ones on but once they fall off she freaks and thinks she needs a new one. Any suggestions would be great!

    Honestly, I usually let them have a bandaid if they want one - within reason (as in there has to be an actual cut). If it makes them feel better, I figure it isn't hurting anything and one or two bandaids used isn't that much of a waste.

    Shae asks for a bandaid any time she gets the tiniest bump. If there is no mark, I tell her, "There's no blood, you don't need a bandaid. I'll kiss it better if you want." If there's an actual scrape, I'll give her one. I print every bandaid coupon I can get my hands on and can usually get a box for under 50 cents, sometimes as low as a penny a box.

    I'm not much help but I can sympathize. If you look at DD funny she needs a bandaid. So far the only thing that I've found that works is not buying the fun bandaids, like Toy Story or Shrek. They seem much less interesting to her.
