Its been almost five weeks since ds's fingertip got slammed in that door, and i just wanted to jump in and let everyone know that, lo and behold, small childrens fingertips do, in fact, grow back.<br><br>
His fingertip was fone from just below the nail, although the nail bed was still there. The bone was sticking out. Today, his finger is the same lenght as the other one.. the nail has grown about halfway back already and theres a bit of a scab left on the tip. I am truly amazed.<br><br>
So yes, fingertips do indeed regenerate in children (insert amazed icon here.)

I remember it too, and I thought of you last week when my youngest got her fingers smashed - hard! - in the hinge side of a door over at a friend's. I'm so glad to hear that the fingertip has made a reappearance! (or should we call it a resurgence?) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
