I had a friend who's dr showed them how to pop it back in place at home to avoid all the ER trips. It's very common and once diagnosed you know it's not from abuse or anything. Like I said, my own 2yr old dislocated his own elbow yanking on a watch! It doesn't take much to pop it out once it happens.
Ick! You're not helping to make me feel better. I keep watching her and worrying her antics will dislocate something. It's an easy fix but not one I want to try on someone else's child. At least the mom is aware that it will probably happen again. Just the thought of it is just creepy to me...again just a weird phobia of mine. If it happened here I would be able to appear calm but I'd be freaked out on the inside.
