A hug or a kiss
Grandma or other favorite friend
A band-aid, of course!
A treat -- food or toy
This kid's unique. ____ fixed that ouchie.
With toddlerhood, my kids became walking bumps, bruises, scrapes and scratches. Most of time a little magic in the form of a hug or kiss made them all better. For a couple of kids, a bandage was essential for even the tiniest of cuts. It let the world know that they were hurting and could you please throw a little sympathy their way? My oldest thought band-aids were evil. At age three, she accepted the injury calmly, but offering a band-aid sent the kid into a screaming fit. Honestly... So...
What helps your child feel better?

Used to be bandaids, now an ice pack will do the trick every time!
Kisses. Even if it's really major I get "momma kiss it better please" I have magical kiss powers

Well I have 5 kids and 5 different personalities so this one was hard for me. I think in general for a quick scrape or bump the hug and kiss method works great. But when my DD was a toddler only a band aid would do. She wouldn't wear it on her boo boo though - she'd wear it on her shirt!!!
