Q.

Trampoline

We bought a trampoline for our 2-year old with safety nets, etc, but just want to know if there are any side effects on her body if she jumps quite a lot?

Trampolines are not recommended for young children and accidents are common. These include sprains,bone fractures and head and neck injuries. When young children ask for a trampoline, the answer should be: No.
