my son just turned 9 months and it seems like everyday he has a new bruise! i have 13 neices and nephews and i dont remember any of them getting as many as he does on almost a daily basis, he did just have his 9 month check up and is a perfectly healthy happy baby, i was just wondering if he really is just a "bruiser" as my sisters call him or if this is really weird...

Honestly, I wouldn't worry much (since you say he's happy and healthy), but I would talk to the doctor about it. My almost 9 month old is quite active, but I've never noticed a bruise on him. But mine isn't crawling or walking yet, so perhaps that will change. Maybe you can get your doctor to run some bloodwork just to be sure everything is okay.

my cousin's little girl is almost two and she was having the same problem so they had blood work done and found out her blood is just a little thinner than usual. They said it is something she should grow out of and nothing to really worry about. This may not be the case with your son, but I just thought I would throw it out there. It seems like my boys have been getting bruises since day one, but they are both terribly rough. They are now 8 and 4 and keep bruises all the time!!
