My baby boy got to the touch lamp (it is now up and out of his reach. i know stupid stupid stupid...It's usually up..long story why it was down) and burnt acouple fingers on it, this morning. I didn't realize how bad it was until acouple minutes ago..I see two huge blisters on the tops of his fingers. This is my first baby and though I think I have common sense and am a smart gal..for some reason I really question myself when it comes to my baby. First thought is to leave it alone. Maybe put a cold rag on it later and some aloe. but maybe not the aloe until the blister bursts..if it does. Does anyone have anything that comes to mind? They are really big and look like they hurt. He has been pretty frustrated all morning...now I see why. =( Thanks.

Poor little babe! Do you bf? If so, put some bm on the burns and they will heal up just fine!
