    You poor chook How is the little poppet now? How did you go at the hospital? You did the right thing immobilising the arm.
    Please don't blame yourself. These things happen. Although I did tell a friend I was going to teach DD how to dial Child Services after I told her to come and get her breakfast and she (literally) jumped out of her little arm chair and face planted the floorboards resulting in a fat lip... she is 8.5 months... But we all have these sort of things happen so don't stress. Let us know how you go...

    You are doing a great job keeping her settled by the sounds of it. Fantastic idea with imbolising her arm but I would hold out giving her panadol. Sometimes it can mask pain/injuries. It can be hard to sit there and not give her anything but it could be a good idea so the dr's can assess her fully. Call the ER and ask them what they think and if it is okay to give her panadol or not.
    Another idea is if you really concerned about DD have you thought of calling an ambulance for them to assess her and take you and her to the hospital?
    Good luck and please let us know how you get on. We'll be thinking about you.

    I agree with Dan-if you call OOO get them to take a look and if they think you need to can get you to the hospital -if not, they will reassure you.

    Panadol is fine to give - if something is broken there will still be clinical signs and she will still be able to indicate it hurts. It only dulls the pain. It doesn't take it away.

    Thank you everyone for your reassurance and advice.. things have calmed down alot. I phoned the hospital and got some advice from the emergency department. They said I would be waiting 5-6 hours for a doctor as it was not life threatening. I couldnt believe it, DH ended up leaving work early to come home as he was worried sick. I went out with DD in the can and drove for 40 mins to find an open pharmacy and got some panadol. I fond the drive really calmed her down and she was fast asleep again when we got home. She woke up and could move her arm slightly. Usually when i give her a toy she brings it straight to her mouth, but she just holds it by her side and dosent move. I try to give her toys but she dosent pick the arm up and if I put the toy in her hand she can't grip with it very well. She is in her swing next to me right now and one arm is playing with the toys and the other is just limp by her side. However she has stopped crying, without me giving her panadol, but at leastI have it on hand if she needs it tonight. I am still worried about the limited use of her arm and also the grip of her fingers is no where near as tight as the uninjured arm when i give her tihngs to hold but she has stopped crying altogther so i am less panicced. I will go see the GP tomorrow if it hasnt improved.
    Thanks so much for everyones responses, bellybelly is a valuable resource for support and advice :hugs: to everyone

    EDIT: Actually i might take her to the paeditrition ... maybe a better idea.

    I would go to the GP anyway JIC. Please don't think you are overreacting...

    Its important that you get her seen. I hope your other DD is ok too, I bet she feels awful

    DD#1 was bawling her eyes out, but I made sure that she knew it was my fault not hers .. I am responsible for teaching her how to roll her over. She is ok but still worried. I will definatly get her seen. She is sitting her not using the hurt arm at all ....

    Hope today isn't too much pain for the little love, and that you're not waiting too long for a doc to see her.

    Oh Jen I just saw this thread! You poor thing and poor Mackenzie! Please don't feel bad, accidents do happen - but when you're a mummy you feel like everything is your fault anyway.

    She may have a broken humerus (or separated the top part from the rest), or a dislocated shoulder (which could explain the bruise) or perhaps have given herself a brachial plexus injury (stretched nerves controlling her arm). Either way, it isn't normal and she needs to see a dr today. I hope you get in to a dr and get things sorted out, poor little love. If all else fails as someone said, you could ring the ambulance.

    Look after yourself, let us know how you both get on.

    Hey everyone.. what a long night. I havent slept yet. Kenzie was awake every 15 minutes crying last night so I just stayed up with her and gave her comfort. I called the paedatrition this morning and got in straight away at 9.30. He pulled and prodded and poked (I thought he was a bit rought), but she was sooo good the little darlin. He sent us off for x rays and in the end nothing is damaged on the xray, its is a muscle injury of somesort, I'm sure he said the techniqual name but i cant remember. She has to wear her arm in a sling (I have just wrapped a scarf around her torso to keep it firm and immobile)for 6 days and have panadol today.
    I am soo glad I took her to the specialist to get it checked. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and advice, what would I do without bellybelly!
    DD#1 is much better today I have reinforced thats it was my fault not hers. So heres hopeing today is a better day!

    I'm glad her arm isn't broken. I hope she(and you) feels better soon.
