Often when a child gets injured, it’s not just the pain that makes them cry. Seeing blood can trigger a stronger reaction as well. If your child is sensitive to the sight of blood, using something light in color to apply pressure or clean them up can just make the problem worse. I had a set of red washcloths and hand towels that I kept on hand for my daughter when she was little. These were used strictly when she had an injury. The red color helps disguise the sight of the blood and as an added bonus, you won’t end up with unsightly blood stains on them.
