HURT - another sign I wish Lil knew

Last week, Little Fingers (a.k.a "Lil") had a bad diaper rash. For being almost 10 months old, I can tell you she's only gotten one other rash to this degree! She was mighty upset to say the least. As she laid there screaming and crying, I thought, "I wish she knew the sign HURT." If we knew ahead of time just how severe the rash was before going in there and trying to help we might have tried something different (e.g. put her right in a luke warm tub - anything but what she was going through). Our hearts HURT watching her. My husband, father, and I all tried to calm her down, distract her and get the diaper changing job done as quickly as possible!

We've surpassed the rash but it's definitely a sign on our list!

HURT is a 'directional sign'! What does that mean?
When your head hurts, move the sign to your head! When you
have a sore throat, move the sign to your throat area!
