Hi! I have never posted here before but I am looking for some advice. My 3 year-old daughter fell this afternoon on the ladder of our playground in the backyard. She fell directly on her cr*tch - ladder rung between her legs. There was a lot of crying and eventually, once she calmed down, she let me look briefly to see what had been hurt. I couldn't really 'separate things' as she started to fuss but there were a couple drops of blood in her underwear. After this she played just fine and was sitting fine, etc, but it took a lot of convincing to get her to pee when she needed to as she said it hurt. She ended up peeing her pants sitting on my lap. Once she realized it didn't hurt to do that she was more willing to sit on the toilet but still a little nervous about it. By the way, she has been fully toilet-trained for months and we have had no issues. Do you think I should be concerned about this fall and potential injury?? Does it sound serious or just a minor cut that will heal itself and not require a doctor? She will barely let me look at it, I know she would never let a doctor look. Do we just wait and see? I am sort of worried but sort of not. Just not really sure what to think. Help please! Any experience with this kind of thing?? Thanks so much!
