brown skin tone band-aids

Our toddler has an obsession with adhesive bandages. She will invent “boo-boos” to wear one. I regularly hear:

  Mom, I NEED a “ban bain”… please, Mommy. See my boo-boo?

She will point to a random part of her body (with no boo-boo evident). I’ll question her, “I think it just itches, Sis.” But she insists.

Basically, she just wants to put stickers all over herself.

The “ban bains” don’t stay on very long. She peals them off and reapplies them until the adhesive weakens or they get folded over. However, every once in a while, she has an actual boo-boo and our options are cartoons or peach colored.

When I saw that Tru-Colour Bandages would be launching this fall, I requested samples right away. And they sent me two colors (one dark and two medium brown shades). They are fabric and nice quality.

(You can’t even see the darker one here! YAY!! Isn’t that the point?)

This sassy thing can use both. Right now — at the end of summer — she needs the darker shade. But the skin under her arms is closer to the medium shade (which will likely be the color of her skin in the winter). IMG_0111a IMG_0123a .

Here we are both sporting the medium shade:IMG_0138a .

I put on a Band-Aid brand fabric bandage to compare (it’s the lightest one below). Moriah did the same thing. I LOVE THE OPTIONS! IMG_0184a IMG_0199a

I’m looking forward to being able to conceal her boo-boos better!

Seriously. These needed to be invented about 50 years ago.
