What To Do When Your Little One Injures Themselves

It is pretty common when you have children that there are bound to be some scrapes and tumbles along the way, particularly when they are still young. When you are at home you do all you can to protect them from any dangers, but unfortunately when they are outside or at school you are not able to protect them so easily. Knowing how best to deal with this kind of scenario will help you comfort and nurture them back to their usual bouncy self. 

Give Them Cuddles 

They are going to be upset if they have had a nasty fall or bumped into an object whilst they are outside. The first thing you should most certainly do is give them cuddles and a kiss to let them know that you are there for them. It will act as a reassurance that you are there to look after and cafe for them. 

Place Something On the Affected Area 

If they have just scraped their knee or bumped their head then placing something cooling such as reusable gel ice packs, can be effective. This can help to reduce any swelling and act as a cooling mechanism when the area on the surface of the skin feels really warm. 

Look Out For Any Delayed Symptoms 

You need to be vigilant particularly with regards to a head injury. So if your child has suffered one of these then you want to be aware of what to look out for. The following are indicative of a serious head trauma so you should definitely seek medical assistance if you notice any or all of the following. 

  • Confusion or not knowing where they are

  • Not talking coherently so slurred speech

  • Difficulty in waking up or staying awake

  • Not being able to walk steadily 

  • Limbs feeling weak

Visit a Doctor 

If you feel something isn’t quite right then you should definitely take your child to the emergency room or doctor to get them checked out. This is particularly important if they have suffered a head injury as they can have delayed reactions to this type of injury. So keep an eye on your little one and be sure to seek medical assistance immediately if you notice they are not themself.

Give Them a Treat To Cheer Them Up 

Giving them reassuring cuddles and a nice treat will help them to feel better if they have suffered a particularly bad injury. You could watch a movie that they enjoy with them, snuggle on the couch together and make their favorite meal to go with it. Or you could provide them with a sweet treat or small gift such as a toy to help them feel better. The most important thing you can do is be there for them to help reassure them that you care and love them deeply.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
