How about this!? And you thought it was just a diversion to the pain and all mental! But, it turns out that kissing your child’s boo boo does ACTUALLY make it better. The study out of Chile found when you give it a kiss, your saliva can help a cut or scratch heal FASTER! Crazy, right? Our saliva has a protein called histatin-1, which has healing components. They also say that explains why cuts in your mouth heal faster than cuts on your body!
So, next time your little one falls down, give their boo boo a big ol’ sloppy kiss!!
