Last night my 8 yo took LO down the slide. Her foot got caught as she went down, and she wouldn't put any pressure on it after that. We waited until this morning to see if she was any better. When she still wouldn't put weight on that leg, we took her into the pedi right away. One x-ray and a trip to Children's after, LO now has a fractured tibia and a pink walking cast.
I'd heard before that LOs arms or legs can get stuck on the slide and broken, so I was always really careful when I took her down. I'd warned DD1 and usually only let her take LO if I put her on her lap. This time I was doing something else, and she took her down anyway. :-( So just a warning to be careful. And a pic.
