Today i noticed a large bruise on my inner forearm. I couldn't for the life of me figure out where I got it. Then tonight it occurred to me, I always carry Micah's carseat by hooking my arm through the handle, and the bruise is where it rests

I also have scratches all over my chest where Micah has started scratching me with her fingernails while I feed her.

Does anyone else have any baby related injuries?

I am always finding bruises and never know how they got there. I don't think they are baby related...but maybe some are, lol! My knuckles are dry and cracked from constantly washing my hands and using antibacterial gel.....sort of baby related, since it is mainly due to trying to keep germs from getting to Kyah!

I have seen a few little bruises on the side of my breasts from where Kara pinches me while I nurse lol. I also have other bruises that I'm not sure where they are from... some may be from the gym but I can't say for certain lol.

I to have the really dry hands from washing and using purel so much. I haven't had any scratches or bruises that ive really noticed which is suprising since Matthew scratches and pinches me while I feed him to.

I'm having trouble with hands/fingers currently - I think I'm in the beginning stages of carpal tunnel, and I'm pretty sure it's from a combination of picking him up/picking up and carrying the heavy carseat! My middle finger on my left hand always has this numb feeling and when I wake up in the morning my hands and forearms are very sore and fall asleep a lot. I'm thinking it might be time to call someone about it.

I always have bruises that I have no idea where they came from!!! Bailey does pinch me while nursing sometimes, so I have some small bruises there from her. Yesterday, I had that carrier positioned weirdly on my arm and it must've been resting on a nerve because my whole forearm started tingling and going numb, LOL!

Maura use to scratch and pinch me when she was nursing. Dh got me a necklace for Christmas that has a teething ring on it, and now she plays with that while nursing instead of scratching and pinching me. I don't have any bruises, but my back has been killing me from carrying her around so much.
