My 5yo dd has had 3 fractures in 3 years from minor falls. Cd this be a symptom of anything else and is there anything I shd ask to be checked?

First was her wrist when she tripped over at nursery. Then collarbone, rolling out of (low, toddler) bed in her sleep. Then collarbone again today (same spot) when she fell off sofa.

DH and I have never broken a bone so just seems a bit weird. Otherwise she seems fine to us. Wd welcome any tips.

Has she been seen in the same place for each fracture? Continuity of care is important in situations like this.

In this last fracture did anyone query if she'd had previous fractures?

I would ask the Paediatric Orthopedic Surgeon/Consultant if there is anything to be concerned about given her history.

Thank you.. No she was seen in London first but now we are based overseas (EU) and both collarbone fractures were dealt with here. I asked last time having a vague inkling that it was occasionally linked to something more serious but dr was dismissive, q normal. Will try again. Any further advice appreciated, by PM if easier.. I'm not worried abt being alarmed, it probably just is bad luck, but I want to know what it cd be and so what to ask for so we can rule out. Thank you!
