My 8 month old son has several small bruises on his earlobes. I know he is just learning to crawl and stand, but he doesnt go to bed with them but wakes up with new ones. also twice now ive gotten him up in the morning and there has been what apperes to be blood on his sheets and blankets. but no apperent source on his body and no blood on him or his pjs. just wondering what my child could be doing in his sleep to cause this or if there might be something more that i need to look out forView Thread
