Old Head Fractures
can a 2 year old boy in the 75%growth hurt a 8 month baby with a toy?
A 2-year-old can hurt an 8-month-old. The type of injury that would result would most likely be a bruise or swelling. It would be less common to see more serious injuries such as fractures or serious head injuries.
