It's teatime where I am and DS eating his tea then it's bedtime. We have just returned from playground where he landed awkwardly on sand and I think, popped or twisted his knee. Now he walks a few steps then sits heavily down. Does not seem in general pain. But can't walk properly. Is hypermobile.

AIBU to put him to bed as normal rather than go to A&E on Saturday night with a tired toddler? He's 2.3 years, mild autism and waiting up late in A&E queue likely to be very upsetting. It's not U to wait til morning is it?

Yanbu especially if you can ice it, give cal pol and maybe slip a pillow under his leg to raise it while sleeping.

Maybe I should give ibuprofen as anti inflammatory?
He won't keep ice pack on!
Thanks for response.

If he's not in a lot of pain then I'd leave it till morning. It won't be any fun in A & E tonight.
