Baby has a sore arm

(8 Posts)

It must have happened while I was undressing him for him bath as he isn't rolling etc yet so that's all I can think of I didn't notice that he was in pain or my signs. When I was feeding him he made noises when I held his arm. I will take him to the gp in the morning.

He can move his arm and fingers but I am worried and upset. He seems sore.

Any reasurance?

If he isn't upset when you move his arm it seems a bit unlikely, just from undressing.

are you sure it is sore and not that he was just generally complaining. babies complain about lots of things when they are small and dont want arms put in jackets/get clothes on and off, etc

He can move it but he's not using it and when I move he winces a bit. Doesn't seem as bad now as it was. He is normally a happy little lad and is smiling here but I am worried.

Pulled elbow maybe?

Relief. All systems go. Woke him for late feed and he is bashing his teddy around no problem. Too much of a worrier.

Thank you for replies.

Maybe he was leaning on his arm and it had gone to sleep? Must be a weird feeling for a baby when they haven't experienced it before. Glad he's feeling better!
